On April 23, 2009, South Bay Mobilization And South Asians for Peace, De Anza arranged a talk on the War on Terror being carried out in Pakistan. The event held at De Anza College attracted around 60 people.

Dr. Nosheen Ali (facing the audience) and Yasmin Qureshi presented a slide show delineating US's involvement in that region.

A short documentary film 'Da Bajaur Guloona' (literally 'The flowers of Bajaur', but in English titled 'Homeless at Home') was screened in the middle of the presentation. Da Bajaur Guloona produced by Samar Minallah is a video record of the civilian displacement of the residents of Bajaur forced by indiscriminate bombing of the region by the US.
