Event description
Join renowned journalists Rozina Ali and Anand Gopal for a discussion of the aftermath of the Afghanistan withdrawal and the US empire.

About this event

Following the official U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan in August, questions remain about the fate of the country following the twenty-year US occupation. What will happen to the 3.6 million Afghans that have fled their homes since the withdrawal? Or the twenty-three million in the country now threatened with starvation and famine because of US Sanctions? Is the war still being fought in more insidious ways that are harder to see and harder to resist?

Join renowned journalists Rozina Ali and Anand Gopal as they discussion all this and more on Friday Dec 3rd at 5PM on the Haymarket Youtube channel.

Organizer Haymarket Books

Organizer of The US Empire After Afghanistan

Haymarket Books is a radical, independent, nonprofit book publisher based in Chicago.

Our mission is to publish books that contribute to struggles for social and economic justice. We strive to make our books a vibrant and organic part of social movements and the education and development of a critical, engaged, international left.

We take inspiration and courage from our namesakes, the Haymarket Martyrs, who gave their lives fighting for a better world. Their 1886 struggle for the eight-hour day – which gave us May Day, the international workers’ holiday – reminds workers around the world that ordinary people can organize and struggle for their own liberation. These struggles continue today across the globe—struggles against oppression, exploitation, poverty, and war.
