I think it's an important action to respond promptly to these articles and get letters published. I've had at least two letters published in the Guardian after these alerts. I think they respond to 1) the volume of letters all on the same subject and 2) the well-informed nature of the letters that we list-members can write. If 20 letters arrive all saying ``the weapons inspectors were not expelled by Iraq in 1998'' it has an effect. Also it is relatively easy -- a quick pithy email letter takes a few minutes (though sometimes it's hard to limit oneself to a single point when the whole article is a mess of lies and immoral and racist assumptions, it makes publication more likely if one can). So please keep doing these alerts! best wishes, Fay Dowker On Mon, 4 Mar 2002, Voices uk wrote: > I've been unable to download Peter Brooke's summaries for quite some time so > maybe there's been a large overlap there with stuff that I've posted.
