Dear Friends, The Coalition Against Sanctions and War on Iraq is a secular organisation that was set up in 1997 to actively campaign against and expose the Sanctions policy on Iraq which is killing approximately 5,000 children per month. We also campaign against the almost daily bombing of Iraq and the destruction that this causes. Since 1997, in Manchester we have organised many activities and events such as lobbying members of parliament, candle light vigils, leaflets and petitioning, conferences, regular public meetings and demonstrations. At Coalition events, we always show just what the effects of Sanctions and War are having upon the civilian population of Iraq, this includes the youth, women, disabled and other sections of Iraqi society. We have been able to achieve this, through speakers at our events from members of the Iraqi Community, humanitarian relief workers and campaign activists from a wide range of organisations. At present we are currently working to develop our links with schools and communities inside of Iraq and the Middle East as a whole, because, the human suffering inside of Iraq will naturally have its affects upon the people in neighbouring countries. In this growing climate towards war, where Iraq is still being bombed on an almost daily basis, the Coalition would like to inform people that on Saturday November 10th, we will be holding a day conference over in Liverpool, UK, so that we can all come together and listen to speakers such as Felicity Arbouthnot, a freelance journalist and a regular visitor to Iraq, aswell as other speakers from the Morning Star (a daily news paper) and the Coalition. >From this, we hope that we are able to draw more people around the issue of Iraq, whilst being inside or out side, a broader movement aswell as it being refreshing and positive for every one. The conference is going to be held at the Liverpool Dockers "CASA" Club (29 Hope Street, Liverpool, near Lime Street Train Station) and will begin at 11am till 5pm. A light lunch will be provided and the entrance to those affected by Asylum/Immigration laws will be free. The charge for the door will be £3.50 (employed) £2. (unemployed) The conference is open to every body to attend and stalls are available upon request for a donation of £5.00 to help cover costs.
