July 31 Protest Photos



 
 More than 200 protesters gathered at the US Embassy in Dublin on 31st July to
 protest a decade of genocide in Iraq.
 
 The protest was called by the Campaign to End Iraq Sanctions -- Ireland.
 Protesters carried large banners and distributed leaflets calling for an end to
 the criminal sanctions which have resulted in the deaths of over 1.5 million
 people in 10 years.
 
 Felicity Arbuthnot, a journalist specialising in social and environmental
 issues was the main speaker. A specialist on Iraq, she has visited the country
 22 times since the
 1991 Gulf war, an experiece she describes as watching a people slide from the
 impossible to the apocalyptic╣ as a result of the United Nations embargo.
"Denis
 Halliday is right when he says │history will slaughter those responsible▓, says
 Arbuthnot.
 
 A shrine consisting of names Iraqi children was displayed on the outer fencing
 of the embassy. It was a powerful reminder to the people of the human toll of
 the sanctions. The protesters later marched to the UK Embassy which is nearby.
