Where Are The Women?

All this talk about how our troops are fighting in Afghanistan for 'women and girls' rights is laudable however there doesn't appear to be any women or girls in Afhganistan when you look at news photos of the 'public'. The public is 'men only'. image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors. image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

Yep really liberated country.

It is common and mostly heard and seen through the media such as a school set on fire, teachers killed or guards of schools beaten to death. Such activities that mostly are carry out at midnights are a day to day business in Afghanistan. But the latest deadly attack of 3rd of July, 2006 on Hirat University, has crossed all the limits killing a girl and wounding 9 others seriously in the bright day. Explosion of bomb by placing the bomb in water jug in a class room is an inimitable example of brutality.

Malalai Joys Concludes Successful US Tour

Afghan parliamentarian, Malalai Joya toured the United States in March 2006, addressing thousands of Americans in community forums, panels, college campuses, and local churches.

Malalai Joya first gained media attention when she spoke out against warlords in the 2003 Constitutional Loya Jirga. Since then she ran for election and won a seat with the second highest number of votes in her native Farah Province

Some of the slogans on the banners carried by the participants were: "Parliament full of drug kingpins, criminals and traitors can’t represent our people!", "Collaboration with any of the fundamentalists is equivalent to treachery", "The Northern Alliance should be brought to justice", "April 28 odious than April 27", "New cabinet: the same donkey with a new saddle!"
Through the installation of Mr. Karzai government, our people had hoped to see the slightest positive changes in their life, but today the anti-nation policies of authorities and their foreign masters exhibit the real and anti-nation face of the government that converted this hope into disappointment and abhorrence. Mr. Karzai and his Afghan and foreign advisers have shown conspicuously that they are ready to shake hands in friendship with the filthiest individuals and parties, who now wear the bogus mask of democracy on their nasty faces. They have gone even further by giving a share of the authority to the Taliban and the terrorist and misogynist party of Gulbuddin Hekmatyar. Thus, for all practical purposes, they have not left any cruel and traitorous person or group out of the government mechanism. Mr. Karzai calls this kind of traitor-fondling “National Unity” but for our people it doesn’t have any other meaning other than dirtying the “Unity”.
