November 17, 2009: Afghan MP Malalai Joya is in Winnipeg as a part of her Canadian tour to convince Canadians they must withdraw their troops from Afghanistan.
Afghans, says Joya, must decide what happens in Afghanistan. Foreign intervention must end.
She has a message for the families of Canadian soldiers. She understands their suffering and extends her condolences. Like them, she knows what it is like to lose loved ones in war. But condolences are not enough. She calls upon Canadians to force the Canadian government to end it’s military intervention.

Please take some time to remind your member of Parliament that most Canadians want our troops home. If you don’t know who your MP is or how do get in contact, visit the House of Commons MP page.
