CODEPINK has long supported the courageous work of Malalai Joya. In coordination with the Afghan Women's Mission, we are urging everyone to call Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at the State Department at 202-647-5291 between 9 am to 5 pm Eastern Standard Time. Press "1" and leave a comment stating that you are outraged at Malalai Joya's exclusion from the U.S. and that you would like the State Department to immediately grant Ms. Joya an emergency appointment and visa at any U.S. Embassy she has applied.
Even Time Magazine recognizes this affront on civil liberties. The U.S. government claims to be supporting women's rights through its occupation of Afghanistan. Perhaps the government does not want us to hear the hard truth about life after "liberation"? Call the State Department today to express your outrage.
