dear Discussion List members

Over the past few days, Casi has been putting together a new
introduction to sanctions on Iraq for its website. We now have a "Guide"
in draft form on the web:

We anticipate that when this Guide is linked from the main CASI site, it
will be extensively used, both by newcomers to the issue of sanctions
and also by more informed activists, using the Guide as a reference
point to find out recent information about a particular issue.
Currently, the CASI website receives over 17,000 visitors per month, and
so it's important to make sure that this Guide is as informative and
well-written as anti-sanctions campaigners have the capacity for.

This, I hope, is where discussion list members can help! At the moment,
all we have is short, pithy articles about 9 major issues, such as oil
for food and SCR 1284. All of these articles can be considerably
improved -- you may be able to find inaccuracies in the existing
articles, to put them into better language or add supplementary
sections. You may want to re-write articles completely, because they can
(undoubtedly) be done better; you may also want to add new articles
about relevant topics. Also, if you have web design skills, you may be
able to help make the site more user-friendly and accessible.

If you have the opportunity to help us develop these articles, then
please do. At the moment, I don't know of any similar user-friendly web
introductions to sanctions, and so this Guide could provide a
considerable benefit for the anti-sanctions campaign. The guide is
intended to be an on-going project: each article will be improved and
updated over time as new events occur and according to the suggestions
and comments we receive. At the moment, if you do have comments about
the Guide and suggested improvements, please send them to me (rather
than to the address on the site), and - if we think the Guide has
reached a sufficient standard - we'll link it from the main CASI website
sometime next week.

Thanks for your help.
Best wishes,
Glen Rangwala.
