1/2 MILLION IRAQIS MARCH AGAINST TERRORISM IN BAGHDAD December 10, 2003 Contacts Baghdad: Mr. Sabah Muhsin, Baghdad IPO Chairman: +1 914 360 5278 London: Mr. Ahmed Shames, London IPO Chairman: + 44 (0) 798 018 2974 Mr. Yasser Alaskary, Media Affairs Dir.: + 44 (0) 773 638 9400 http://www.iprospect.org.uk Around half a million Iraqis marched through the capital, Baghdad, to protest against the terrorism that has killed countless Iraqis in the last 4 months. "The Iraqi people have spoken very clearly, there is no such thing as 'Iraqi-resistance', only terrorism by regime loyalists and external fundamentalists," said Sabah Muhsin, Baghdad Chairman of the IPO. "It's a painful insult to Iraqis to call these acts resistance." The march is the largest protest to have taken place in Iraq after the fall of Saddam Hussein's regime in April. During that time there has been a steady increase in terrorist bombings that have not only targeted coalition troops, but the UN, Red Cross and the Iraqi police. Notes to journalist: 1. The Iraqi Prospect Organisation (IPO) is a network of young Iraqi men and women, primarily based in Baghdad, and works to promote democracy for Iraq. _______________________________________________ Sent via the discussion list of the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq.
