BERKELEY, CA (KGO) -- A former female member of Afghanistan's parliament is in the Bay Area urging the president and NATO to remove foreign troops from Afghanistan.

Malalai Joya wrote a book called "A Woman among Warlords." She says Afghanistan does not need more foreign troops, it needs education and jobs. She feels her people will get rid of the Taliban and warlords.

"Support my people, democratically-minded people of my country. Day by day, the resistance is getting more," she says. "This is hope for the future of Afghanistan and political knowledge of my people is a hope for the future of Afghanistan, but we need your solidarity and support."

Joya's verbal attacks on the warlords prompted death threats and cost her her job in parliament. That triggered protests in the streets. She is speaking at UC Berkeley Tuesday night.
