1. Old Unicef report is on-line 2. New Unicef report is partially on-line 3. New "counter-dossier" is on-line somewhere 4. News report on the Iraqi opposition. 1. The 1999 Unicef report appears to be wholly on the Unicef site (except for the acknowledgements page) via: http://www.unicef.org/iraq/library/reports-frame.htm The Preliminary report for south-centre is: http://www.unicef.org/iraq/library/sou-sum/home1.htm The full south-centre report is at: http://www.unicef.org/iraq/library/sou-ful/home.htm And the northern reports are at: http://www.unicef.org/iraq/library/nor-sum/home.htm (summary) http://www.unicef.org/iraq/library/nor-ful/home.htm (full) 2. The February 2002 Unicef report is patly on the CASI site: "The Situation of Children in Iraq: An Assessment Based on the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child" http://www.cam.ac.uk/societies/casi/info/unicef/sit0202/contents.html Quote: "This erosion of human development - which one can effectively term 'de-development' - therefore appears attributable to the lasting effects of the crises of 1990-1 including the resulting sanctions regime, in spite of the attempts by the Security Council to alleviate the impact on the population." 3. In advance of the Blair dossier to be release this Tuesday, I have co-authored a "counter-dossier" with Alan Simpson, MP for Nottingham South. It is entitled: "The dishonest case for war on Iraq". This comes to 9 pages of going over the likely government claims, and assessing them for accuracy and plausibility. A print pamphlet copy is available on request in the UK (and a separate organisation is producing copies in the US). The pamphlet was produced by the Labour Against the War grouping http://www.labouragainstthewar.org.uk but the text is not on their website yet. It has appeared on-line in a number of other places, eg: http://www.traprockpeace.org/counter-dossier.html Comments would be greatly appreciated. 4. An article on the US-funded opposition, for which I receive some credits, appears in the Sunday Herald today. It's at: http://www.sundayherald.com/27877 May be useful, though it's nothing new. All the best Glen. _______________________________________________ Sent via the discussion list of the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq.
