Recent photos from Iraq

I have just returned from Iraq. I am a Canadian artist and I had the
opportunity to join a delegation of doctors taking medicines to Iraqi
hospitals. I took a very simple line drawing with me of a child held in
it's mother's hands.This image was laid out on the ground in the gardens of
the AL Rasheed Hotel in Baghdad. I used stones to form the image and more
stones will be added over time to make the image even more pronounced. I am
pursuing efforts to have this image laid out in the desert on a huge scale
so that the pilots may realise that they are bombing more then just empty
buildings and green blobs on their radar screens.
I wanted to do something positive that would recognize  the rights of the
Iraqi children. These rights are guaranteed under various international law
and have clearly have been ignored. I am starting the process towards
having our Prime Minister in Canada and our Foriegn Affairs Minister, tried
for crimes against humanity.
