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

Online Teach-in


Friday, December 3rd, 5:00 PM ET

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.
