Sent: Wednesday, June 04, 2003 10:18 PM Subject: Iraq meetings in parliament PLEASE CIRCULATE Iraq: humanitarian aftermath and future prospects TUESDAY 17 JUNE a public seminar in the House of Commons, hosted by Lynne Jones MP, with Christoph Wilcke, Save the Children UK's Middle East Research & Advocacy Officer 7pm to 9pm, Committee Room 9, House of Commons, SW1 This seminar is the first in a series of three held by Labour CND to discuss in depth the background issues arising in the aftermath of the war on Iraq. A leaflet with full details is attached for circulation to your Labour Party, trade union or local CND branch. No weapons of mass destruction have been found in Iraq. A humanitarian crisis is unfolding and looting continues. American and British forces are unwelcome in the country - seen as occupiers not liberators. The interim administration is disunited and the country is unstable. The civilian population is bearing the biggest brunt of this, with little sign of a peaceful or democratic outcome in the near future. Many of us are asking 'what was it all about?'. Labour CND is holding a series of public seminars in the House of Commons to address the aftermath and implications of the war. Each seminar offers in-depth consideration of a particular aspect of the post-war situation - with an up-to-the-minute report parliamentary report from our host MP and plenty of time for audience participation. Other seminars in the series are: MONDAY 30 JUNE Security perspectives after the war Hosted by Alice Mahon MP, with Professor Paul Rogers of the Oxford Research Group MONDAY 14 JULY North Korea: is there a threat? Hosted by Jeremy Corbyn MP, with Keith Bennett, ex-editor of Asian Times All seminars take place: 7pm to 9pm, Committee Room 9, House of Commons, SW1 (nearest tube Westminster) Everyone welcome The series is aimed in particular at Labour Party members and trade unionists, but is open to all. MPs are also being invited to join the audience.
