Maya Evans has now visited Afghanistan 3 times over the
last 3 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 talks a grassroots perspective
which also includes political analysis. 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. Despite the
serious content her talks they are not solemn but extremely lively and
cheerful, she is a very entertaining speaker.
