Dear Friends, as you may have already have read the USA is planning an invasion of Iraq. Any attempts by the USA to invade Iraq has got to be opposed because of the destruction and genocide that has already occured as a result of the policies laid down by the "allied" forces from the Gulf War. Since then, the USA along with their followers in the British government have carried through a mass policy of genocide through the sanctions and the almost daily bombing of the country which has destroyed most of the countries infrastructure. Felicity Arbouthnot described Iraq, in 1998 at the Fire Brigade Union the Silent Holocaust conference as "being turned from a concentration camp into a death camp". This was in direct response to the deaths of over 6,000 children per month as a result of sanctions. This figure may even exclude the deaths of children who are killed from the constant bombing campaigns and even from the increases in cancers which is believed to have been brought on by the use of Depleted Uranium by Western troops in the Gulf War. The Coalition Against Sanctions and War on Iraq which is based in the North West of England believes that a broader coalition of forces needs to brought into being to prevent any possible invasion of the country. Our anger must now be directed at those who intend on creating even further instability within the Middle East because any invasion of Iraq will only lead to even more destruction. We the people can help prevent further genocide of the Iraqi people by standing together and by rememberring that those who are planning this invasion are the same people that are killing over 6,000 children per month and having been bombing the civilians of one country for over ten years! The next meeting of the Coalition Against Sanctions and War on Iraq is meeting on Wednesday 20th Feb, 7-30pm and is meeting at the Friends Meeting House in Manchesters City Centre. We would like to invite those who are wanting to end the killing of the Iraqi people to come along and join us in this call.
