Niall Andrews
(Irish Member of European Parliament)

10 years of brutal  sanctions and repeated military attacks by  US and
UK have 
resulted in the deaths of more than 1.5 million Iraqi  people. 
According to a new UNICEF report,  about 300 children below the age of 5
years die every day.  The sanctions are strongly opposed by the
international  community.  However,  they remain in place because the US
and UK governments have flatly rejected all attempts at alleviating
suffering of the Iraqi people.

Come and join us at the demonstration to send  a clear 
message to the United States government that a foreign policy that kills
innocent people is unacceptable.
