On May 18th and 19th, Afghan Women’s Mission Co-Directors, Sonali Kolhatkar and James Ingalls will discuss the escalating war in Afghanistan. Recent demonstrations in Herat and Nangarhar in opposition to the US occupation indicate that Afghanistan may be going in the direction of Iraq. Sonali and James will attempt to answer the following questions:
– What are the effects of the US/NATO occupation in Afghanistan?
– Who has real political power in Afghanistan?
– How are ordinary Afghans coping with the return of war and fundamentalism?
– And what can Americans do to work in solidarity with Afghan people?
