“Long live freedom, down with occupation!” are the concluding words of Afghan dissident Malalai Joya as she marks a dark day for her country. The former Member of Parliament, human rights activist and author has been described as the “bravest woman in Afghanistan” by the BBC after she unabashedly spoke the truth at a 2003 Loya Jirga assembly riveting the world with her denunciations. Surviving multiple attempts on her life in the years that have followed, this videotaped message on the tenth anniversary of the US/NATO occupation of Afghanistan shows how uncompromised her words continue to be.
