Justice for Iraq

Don't think we will be seeing David Davis at this event but like me he is been in the Morning Star! big interview yesteday...!

A day conference
Saturday 19 July, London

Justice for Iraq is a call to action – a campaign that demands a complete policy reversal of those countries who have invaded and occupied Iraq since 2003. Ending the military occupation remains the most urgent priority. But Iraq will remain a broken nation without urgent measures aimed at delivering lasting peace and justice for its people and healing some of the wounds caused by this disastrous war.

Justice for Iraq will pressure Iraq's occupiers to:

withdraw their troops and privatised security forces;
restore Iraq's full economic, legal and political sovereignty;
dismantle the Green Zone and the other occupation walls;
clean up toxic and unexploded weapons of war;
release and compensate detainees;
assist refugees and displaced persons;
help Iraq to relieve dire shortages in food, water, energy and medical supplies;
agree to pay reparations for waging a war of aggression;
ensure that war criminals face justice.
These demands do not represent a complete or final list. This campaign is in the process of emerging and we are reaching out to build a network of organisations and individuals who share a similar goal. Join us on 19th July to be a part of debating, building and launching this campaign.
