Urgent Messgae


Dear List Member,

The MARIAM APPEAL has launched a major new international
initiative to highlight the campaign against sanctions and to
bring to an end the suffering of the people of Iraq.

³The Big Ben to Baghdad² convoy will be led by an especially
modified red London double decker bus which will travel through
the UK before heading on to France and Spain. It will then cross
into Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, and Egypt before reaching
Jordan and finally crossing into Iraq.

By driving through these destinations and holding major rallies in
key cities, we hope to highlight the devastation and cruel
suffering that sanctions have caused.  As man of you know nearly
7,000 children a month are now dying in Iraq because of the
effects sanctions have had on medical supplies and services.

Below you will find details of the UK rallies. Now is a
particularly poignant time for the Appeal, as, sadly, Mariam
Hamza, after whom the Appeal is named, is critically ill having
been diagnosed with a secondary cancer.
