&
TAHMEENA FARYAL of the Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan (RAWA)

THEY WILL TRY TO ANSWER THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS:

• Have the women and people of Afghanistan really been liberated by US bombs?

• Does the replacement of one fundamentalist terrorist regime in Afghanistan with another really root out terrorism and what might this foretell for Iraq?

Sonali Kolhatkar is the Vice President of The Afghan Women's Mission, Host of The Morning Show on 90.7 KPFK, and a writer who has has written numerous published articles.

The 1 1/2 hour teach-in will look at the "War on Terrorism" that has been waged since 9/11 in Afghanistan, and the current target Iraq. It will look at how the goal of rooting out terrorism quickly turned into one of liberating the Afghan people from the Taliban. Once the hunt for Osama Bin Laden proved more difficult that the Bush Administration imagined, the target quickly became Iraq. The U.S is now launching a brutal war against the Iraqi people, once more to liberate them through bombs. Donald Rumsfeld, US Defense Secretary has hailed Afghanistan as a model for Iraq. What are the implications of this for the people of Iraq? How will this war affect the women of Iraq? and what does it mean to be liberate a people through war? Sonali will will attempt to answer these and more questions at the teach-in.

OPEN TO THE PUBLIC & ALL CAMPUS CLUBS

Tahmeena Faryal is one of the leading spokeswomen of the Revolutionary Association of the Women of
Afghanistan (RAWA). She is in her twenties, very eloquent and has a good grasp of English. In October 2001, Tahmeena testified in front of the Subcommittee of the US House on International Operations and Human Rights. Tahmeena was born in Afghanistan and raised in Pakistani refugee camps. She joined RAWA at a young age after attending a school run by RAWA members. Today she travels around the world speaking out on behalf of Afghan women and their rights. Tahmeena also works on RAWA's various projects in Pakistani refugee camps and
inside Afghanistan when she is not traveling.

The Revolutionary Association of the Women of
Afghanistan (RAWA) is the oldest political women's
organization in Afghanistan. RAWA was founded in 1977 and after the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, they
joined the anti-Soviet resistance and rejected the
fundamentalist ideologies of the US-backed Mujahadeen.
RAWA also strongly denounced the Taliban and today they reject the Northern Alliance who comprise much of
Afghanistan's government. RAWA has been at the
forefront of the Afghan women's movement - they
maintain that a secular and democratic government in
Afghanistan, which ensures the rights of women
alongside men, is the only solution for peace and
stability in their country. In addition to RAWA's
political work of organizing demonstrations and
political campaigns, RAWA also coordinates
humanitarian projects. These include the newly
opened Malalai Hospital in Pakistan for Afghan
refugees, a sustainable farming project in Afghanistan
and scores of schools, orphanages, adult literacy
courses and income generating courses for Afghan women and children. To find out more about RAWA, visit there website at http://www.rawa.org.
