The World Association for Christian Communication invites you to attend a two-day workshop on The News Embargo on Iraq April 5 and 6, 2001 New York City Keynote Speakers Denis J. Halliday and Hans von Sponeck Both men recently resigned their positions as United Nations Humanitarian Coordinator for Iraq to protest what the sanctions are doing to the people of Iraq also Jutta Burghardt, Kathy Kelly, Bishop Thomas Gumbleton, Mike Nahhal, and First hand reports from humanitarian workers who have been in Iraq, including American Friends Service Committee, Fellowship of Reconciliation and Mennonite Central Committee And other distinguished guests. Why has the world stood by unmoved by the humanitarian tragedy unfolding in Iraq as over a half a million children have died because of a decade of sanctions? Why has the Western press been so reluctant to discuss this issue, creating, in effect, a kind of second embargo, a "news embargo" on the people of Iraq? And what can be done by secular and religious journalists to break that embargo?
