The US and Afghanistan: A Fateful Partnership
a presentation with Professor Zaher Wahab
Monday, June 29, 2020 7:00 PM
Streaming live on Youtube at

Join Peace and Justice Works (PJW) Iraq Affinity Group for an evening with
Professor Zaher Wahab speaking on "The US and Afghanistan: A Fateful
Partnership." The event will be live streamed on Monday, June 29 at 7 PM at the
PJW youtube page: https://youtube.com/peaceandjusticeworks. The all-important
discussion about racism, police accountability and the militarization of police
is directly related to US foreign policy, which is why PJW has Portland Copwatch
as a project group as well as the Iraq Affinity Group.

Professor Wahab is an Afghan American who taught at Lewis and Clark College for
four decades before teaching at the American University in Afghanistan for six
years ending in October 2019. Frequently visiting the country before then, he
witnessed the US Occupation over 18+ years.

While Donald Trump negotiated a treaty with the Taliban (bypassing the Afghan
government) and claims he wants American troops out, the agreement allows the US
to leave 8500 troops in Afghanistan. The US continues to conduct airstrikes,
frequently killing civilians.

Professor Wahab will describe a country riddled with violence and corruption,
made all the worse by an ongoing US presence.

The event will be hosted by Ani Haines, a well known area media personality who
spent decades at KBOO-FM community radio.

Instructions for adding to the Q&A period will be posted at the time of the

The presentation is coordinated by Peace and Justice Works Iraq Affinity Group.
Cosponsors include Veterans For Peace Chapter 72 and Eastside Democratic Club.
Endorsers include Portland Central America Solidarity Committee, 
Individuals for Justice and others.

This talk was originally scheduled for the end of February 2020 but delayed by
the Governor's stay-at-home orders. PJW is pleased to have supportive allies
helping us make the technological leap to an online event.
