12 actions for 12 years of sanctions
6 - Arrange a speaker meeting
One of the best ways to raise awareness about the sanctions is to hold a meeting with a visiting speaker. Speaker meetings will often attract more people than planning meetings, and a inspiring talk can be both a good way in for people new to the issue and an interesting stimulus for the more knowledgeable members of the audience.
It is important that you publicise the event widely and well in advance to ensure that as many people as possible who might be interested in coming hear about it. Posters, adverts and a website can all be useful tools for achieving this.
Potential speakers might include:
- someone who has recently visited Iraq
- a member of the Iraqi community
- a politician particularly interested in the situation in Iraq
- a member of another anti-sanctions group
- a journalist who has covered Iraq
