‘Afghanistan: Mission Accomplished? The legacy of 14 years of war’ with Maya Evans


After 14 years British forces have officially concluded their war in Afghanistan, but what is the legacy of the conflict?

Maya Evans has now visited Afghanistan three times over the last three years during which she lived and work with a non-violent Afghan youth group who campaign for peace and grassroots change. During her trips Maya visited refugee camps, health facilities, NGOs, journalists and moreover ordinary Afghans, giving her political analysis a grassroots perspective.

Her previous campaigning against the Afghan war has included a High Court enquiry into the British treatment of Afghan detainees, as well as a prison sentence for protests relating to a NATO bombing of an Afghan wedding party.

Maya is the Co-coordinator of Voices for Creative Non-Violence UK
