AT A CONSTITUTIONAL 
ASSEMBLY in Kabul in 2003, Malalai Joya stood up and denounced her country’s 
powerful U.S./NATO-backed warlords. She was only 25 years old. Two years later, 
she became the youngest person elected to Afghanistan’s new Parliament. In 2007, 
she was suspended for her persistent criticism of the warlords and drug barons. 
Beloved by her people for daring to speak out against U.S.-backed war criminals 
that dominate the government, Joya has survived at least 4 assassination 
attempts. Having come face-to-face with the brutality of war, Joya has been 
demanding an end to the occupation for years. In her book A Woman Among 
Warlords, just out in paperback, Joya explains the situation of ordinary 
Afghans: “We are caught between two enemies—the Taliban on one side and the 
U.S./NATO forces and their warlord allies on the other." Please join us during 
Joya's rare visit to the U.S., as she is joined by world-renowned linguist and 
political dissident Noam Chomsky, internationally recognized as one of the most 
critically engaged public intellectuals alive today.
