13-14 November 1999
Weapons inspections in Iraq have ceased, over eight years into a job scheduled to take 120 days. At the same time, Unicef estimates that an additional half million Iraqi children under five have died since the imposition of sanctions in 1990. Without any diplomatic end to the sanctions in sight, the suffering of the Iraqi people is prolonged indefinitely, while the Iraqi regime continues to live in luxury.
Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq (CASI) invites you to join us for a conference about the history of the conflict, its consequences, the current situation and ways forward. Academics, students, members of the public and professionals are all welcome to attend.
Confirmed speakers include:
For further information please email contact CASI [out of date contact details removed April 2002]
Advance tickets (excluding food and accommodation): £10 (unwaged); £20 (waged). Tickets for one day only are half price. Very basic 'crashpad' accommodation for visiting students will be provided free on the night of Sat. 13th. If you wish to attend individual sessions (£3/£1.50 conc.) rather than one or two entire days, please arrive 10 minutes before the start of the session.
To book places, send your name, address, telephone number & email address (if you have one), together with a cheque (payable to "CASI") to the above address. We will send you full details of the conference and a map. You may also find useful local information here.
Times and Venues:
Some further information about travel and accommodation is contained in the programme and useful information leaflet, accessible from here.
If you can help publicise the conference, please let us know (whether or not you can come yourself!). We can send you posters to put up and flyers to distribute, or you can download the poster in Acrobat format from here and print it out. If you would like us to send you an email describing the conference to forward to your friends or an email list, just ask. Thanks for your help! There is also a press pack downloadable from this page.
Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq (CASI) is a registered society at the University of Cambridge. The society has an exclusively humanitarian focus, does not support the Iraqi regime and is not opposed to military sanctions on Iraq. The views of speakers are not necessarily the views of CASI and vice versa.
