[ Presenting plain-text part of multi-format email ] Dear Mike et al, Great idea to fund Iraqi charities. MAIC is indeed still working in Iraq. They filled Richard Branson's 747 aid flight and launched a post war appeal a few weeks ago (which I attended, they're a good bunch and quite a few have helped with Jubilee Iraq). See http://www.maic.org.uk/ewrf.htm Al-Muajaha (the Witness): This is a group of young independent Iraqis who are printing a newspaper and running an Indymedia site in English & Arabic. They need to raise about $20k for equipment to do it properly, and CASI funds, or donations from individuals on the this list could contribute significantly towards this. I'm meeting some people at Bristol Indymedia this weekend who are helping. I don't know if it's possible to give charitable funds, but if CASIs funds aren't restricted to registered UK charities then this is a really important initiative. What do others think? Other charities: I'm keeping a list on my Future of Iraq Portal http://uk.geocities.com/listlizard/iraqlinks.htm please let me know any others to add. Justin I know that changing the world is not easy but it remains necessary nonetheless. - <http://www.poetryinternational.org/cwolk/view/16265> Fadhil al-Azzawi (Iraqi poet) _______________________________________________ Sent via the discussion list of the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq.
