Pakistan and Afghanistan: What prospects for peace?

Socialist Resistance public meeting

Sahar Saba, Afghan socialist and feminist and Farooq Sulehria, journalist and member of Labour Party Pakistan report on the situation now facing the peoples of these countries and the prospects for the struggle for peace, democracy, against the occupation and for social justice.

Last December, ten political organisations of the left from Pakistan and Afghanistan met in an unprecedented conference.

The conference concluded by stating that “this is a historic step for the progressive forces of both sides to sit together and share the sufferings of our people at the hands of US-led NATO forces as well as the religious extremists in the form of the Taliban. We also vehemently condemn the military establishment and the governments of both countries who use different excuses to justify the occupation by foreign forces as well as tacit patronization of religious extremism.”

Tuesday 24 January, 7.30pm, Community Centre, 62 Marchmont Street, WC1 (Russell Sq, Euston & Kings Cross tubes)
