Halt All Executions! Abolish The Death Penalty!

We women of Tadhamun condemn the persisting practice of arbitrary arrests by the Iraqi security forces. We condemn their arrests of women in lieu of their men folk. These are 'inherited' practices. We are alarmed by credible media reports of the Green Zone government’s intentions of executing hundreds of Iraqi men and women.

Iraq news agency- 16/8/07
Iraqi civilians found the dead body of a woman, that bears signs of torture this morning on the main street towards Kamaliya district south east of Baghdad. People who witnessed her kidnapping on the 12th August from a Palestinian medical centre at Baladyat (South east Baghdad) which is also used by Iraqis, informed the American forces at their security base, in the area (only a few meters away from the Palestinian medical centre) straight away, gave them description of the kidnappers' car and number plate (448468). No attempt by the American forces was made to apprehend the gang. People in the area say it was Abu Ruquiya gang, believed to be part of the Mahdi army militia , this gang continues to operate in that district with impunity.

Samarra Minrate built in 852 AD

Samarra Minrate built in 852 AD
Building of 1 500 massive police station !
From the angle of the photo, it is possible to calculate that the complex is being built at E 396388 N 3785995 (UTM Zone 38 North) or Lat. 34.209760° Long. 43.875325°, to the west of the Malwiya (Spiral Minaret), and behind the Spiral Cafe.
While the point itself may not have more than Abbasid houses under the ground, it is adjacent to the palace of Sur Isa, the remains of which can be seen in the photo. While the initial construction might or might not touch the palace, accompanying activities will certainly spread over it.Sur Isa can be identified with the palace of al-Burj, built by the
Abbasid Caliph al-Mutawakkil, probably in 852-3 (Northedge, Historical Topography of Samarra, pp 125-127, 240). The palace is said to have cost 33 million dirhams, and was luxurious. Details are given by al-Shabushti, Kitab al-Diyarat.
Samarra was declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO at the end of June. The barracks could easily have been built elsewhere, off the archaeological site.--
