Malalai Joya - Message on the Tenth Anniversary of NATO’s War and the Occupation of Afghanistan

Message on the Tenth Anniversary of NATO’s War and the Occupation of Afghanistan

I would like to thank all supporters and anti-war movements around the world who are marking the dark day of occupation of U.S. and NATO in Afghanistan.

Respected friends - 10 years ago the U.S. and NATO invaded my country under the fake banners of women’s rights, human rights, and democracy. But after a decade, Afghanistan still remains the most uncivil, most corrupt, and most war torn country in the world. The consequences of the so-called war on terror has only been more bloodshed, crimes, barbarism, human rights, and women’s rights violations, which has doubled the miseries and sorrows of our people.

Afghanistan has been engaged with more than 30 years of war with thousands of civilians killed or injured since 2001.

It is under these conditions that children are at extreme risk of violence, abuse, exploitation and neglect.
