Malalai Joya spoke to a pack house of in Winnipeg last night at the University of Winnipeg. Three hundred people jammed into Convocation Hall to hear the Afghan MP’s passionate denunciation of the occupation of her country by NATO forces. Her contempt for the Taliban, the Karzai government and the warlords who back it was equally fierce.

We’ll post video of the event in the near future.

In the meantime, here is a short clip of from an interview recorded today in which Malalai calls upon Canadian military families to demand an end to Canadian military intervention in her country.
