150 protest embargo on Iraq in Montreal

Saturday, Nov. 11, 2000 

About 150 Montreal protesters want trade embargo
lifted against Iraq

MONTREAL (CP) -- About 150 people protested Saturday
against trade sanctions imposed on Iraq, saying they
hurt ordinary Iraqi citizens. The protesters want the
Canadian government to support lifting the
U.S.-imposed sanctions, in place for the last 10

They say the sanctions won't dislodge Saddam Hussein
from power. The demonstration was organized by a local
human rights group and those in attendance included
members of the Quebec Federation of Women and
provincial unions. 

The sanctions were imposed in response to Iraq's
invasion of Kuwait but some countries, including
Russia, have been ignoring the embargo.
