I came across their web site last year. I emailed them but no reply at all of course. I don't remember Ann Clywd saying anything at the time about Halabja. I do remember Scottish MP George Galloway strongly protesting against the Iraqi government at the time. Look at how most of the papers have crucified George Galloway for his opposition to sanctions and now the war. I suspect that Ann Clywd will get some reward for her endeavours - perhaps in the next reshuffle. ------- Forwarded message follows ------- From: Mark Parkinson <email@example.com> To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: iraq Date sent: Tue, 17 Dec 2002 19:15:56 -0000 Hi I came across your web site today. I am worried that this organisation is simply part of the US/UK campaign against Iraq - often used to prevent a peaceful settlement in Iraq and to help justify the terrible sanctions and war. Some concerns: 1) You do not call for an international court of justice (the US does not want one - for obvious reasons) 2) You call instead for a 'special' tribunal which will only investigate crimes committed by selected people against the people of Iraq (the worst criminals- the US/UK - will get away scot free) 3) US/UK war and sanctions have killed far more Iraqi civilians (especially children) than SH and his regime 4) US/UK politicians and officials (eg 661 committee) ought to be liable to be charged with war crimes and crimes against humanity 5) The US/UK have contaminated Iraq with depleted uranium AND prevented investigation and support for Iraq 6) Water supplies were deliberately targetted by the US/UK in the Gulf War 7) The US/UK have deliberately killed & harmed Iraqi civilians by preventing the Iraqi government repairing its water treatment and power facilities 8) Indict has accepted money from the US/UK Governments. This is 'dirty' money from governments which have knowingly killed hundreds of thousands of Iraqis 9) Indict makes no mention on its web site of the genocidal sanctions (Denis Halliday resigned from the UN in protest at these genocidal sanctions) 10) Do you not agree that it would be wrong if the US/UK could get away with this? That they should at least stand trial? ------- End of forwarded message ------- Mark Parkinson Bodmin Cornwall _______________________________________________ Sent via the discussion list of the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq.
