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.

War on Want is launching Iraq: Operation Corporate Takeover, at Comica at the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) on 6 November at 7pm.

The event, chaired by Seumas Milne (Guardian columnist and associate editor), will be a lively debate on the corporate takeover of Iraq. The comic's creators Sean Michael Wilson (script writer) and Lee O' Connor (illustrator) will be on hand to sign copies and discuss why comics are an important medium to communicate political realities.

2) SHAHRISTANI - WE'RE READY TO SIGN OIL DEALS BEFORE NEW LAW

Oil Minister Hussain al-Shahristani has told Reuters that Iraq's government hopes to sign deals with foreign oil companies for some of the country's oil fields before the end of the year - even if a new law has not been passed by the Iraqi parliament.

It follows controversial Production Sharing Agreements signed by the Kurdistan regional government with foreign oil firms earlier this month, including with Texas-based oil firm Hunt Oil - which Shahristani described as 'illegal'.

3) THE WHITE MAN'S BURDEN AND 'OIL FOR PEACE' IN IRAQ

Carbon Web article, October 2007
by Greg Muttitt, PLATFORM

"The USA justifies its pressure on grounds that an oil law would help bring reconciliation.

Even if that account fitted the facts (which it doesn’t - their oil law barely mentions the revenue sharing they claim is so important), even if the USA were not responsible for sponsoring the sectarianism that is now tearing at the country, the very concept of the US benchmarks is based on a racist premise: that Iraqis are not able to sort out their politics themselves, that they need US pressure to get the country on track. That is a premise almost unanimously accepted by the media."

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.--
