The Basej-e Milli (National Movement) alternatively called Afghanistan Green Trend (Rawand-e Sabz-e Afghanistan) is a political party in Afghanistan created by former Afghan intelligence chief (2004–2010) Amrullah Saleh. Basej-e Milli started as a grassroots movement when Saleh visited cities and small towns in several Afghan provinces talking about his political beliefs in favour of democracy and reform but strongly opposing the Taliban.[1] In May 2011, more than 20,000 of Saleh's followers took part in an anti-Taliban demonstration in the capital Kabul.[2][3][4]
