20 November - 30 November 11 Days of Action Against the Economic Sanctions on Iraq 11 Days of Action to mark 11 Years of Sanctions National and international period of action against economic sanctions on Iraq in the run-up to the ‘smart sanctions' decision on 30 November. 20 November is Universal Children's Day. Dear All The latest National Coordinating Meeting of British anti-sanctions groups has issued a call for 11 Days of Action Against the Economic Sanctions on Iraq (20 November - 30 November 2001). We would like the 11 Days of Action to be taken up internationally by anti- sanctions groups around the world. Please register your interest in taking part in/sponsoring the 11 Days of Action with Milan Rai of Voices in the Wilderness UK at <firstname.lastname@example.org> The present phase of oil-for-food runs out on 30 November, and it is almost certain that the US and UK will attempt to get their so-called "smart sanctions" package through the Security Council on that date. They must be stopped. As Hans von Sponeck and Denis Halliday have pointed out, the US/UK proposals would merely tighten the noose around the neck of the average Iraqi citizen. To mark 11 years of suffering, we're calling for 11 days of action. We want the UN Security Council to vote against the "smart sanctions" resolution and to vote to end economic sanctions on Iraq on 30 November. The first activity in the UK will be a co-ordinated 'Phone Wave' against the Foreign Office on Tuesday 20 November, Universal Children's Day. More details will be announced in September. Please circulate this announcement.
