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.

WSIUI: We support all forms of resistance stemming from the heart of our country


A statement by Women Solidarity for an Independent Unified iraq
London
22/2/2011

Iraq has been witnessing protests and demonstrations up and down the country for several weeks now, including towns and cities where no protests has taken place in the past .

We got news of  mass protests from Baghdad, Basra, Kut, Samawah, Diwaniyah, Fallujah, Kirkuk to Sulaymaniyah. Against  the suppression of freedoms, arrests, torture, corruption, disillusionment and unfulfilled  election promises not least the disastrous lack of basic services such as electricity, water and health services and the inefficient and corrupt way the ration system is being handled. They also protest the lack of employment opportunities. They protest the lack of social support, in particular, for widows and orphans and pensioners in order to enable them to live in the dignity they deserve, instead of destitution and humniliation.

What unites the protesters, too is their determination to keep the demonstrations peaceful, despite the savage reaction by the security men and police, as in the shooting and the arrest of peaceful demonstrators and wounding and killing several of them in Kut, Sulaymaniyah and Baghdad.

The unified voice of the all the protesters, call for peaceful demonstrations  and for the slogans to represent the national concerns. This is the voice people who are fed up with the promises made without any real achievement. They are fed up with patronizing bombastic speeches made by one government official after another to no avail.

The voice of the protesters is the voice of the freedom and dignity of the Iraqi people. It is the voice of the valiant Iraqi woman, as she struggles to restore her historic achievements and her leading role in the Iraqi people’s struggle for freedom, equality and self determination.

It is the voice of people who know all too well, that super human patience is of no use and the current crucial historical moment has to be seized. It must not be wasted, it is time to go down the road of restoring the dignity of all Iraqis and a better future for our children.
We in Women Solidarity for an Independent United Iraq, support all forms and levels of resistance stemming from the heart of our country. These protests are a manifestation and popular expressions of the unity of our people. In organising such protests and attending them our people are exercising their rights as guaranteed by international law and basic human rights. We support the protests and urge our people to come out in their support.

تضامن المرأة لعراق مستقل وموحد تساند التظاهرات والاعتصامات الشعبية في العراق المحتل
منذ اسابيع وابناء شعبنا العراقي  يتظاهرون في مدن عدة، من بينها مدن تساهم في التظاهرات لاول مرة، منذ احتلال البلاد في عام 2003. يوحد ما بين المتظاهرين، جميعا، من بغداد والبصرة والكوت والسماوة والديوانية والفلوجة وكركوك الى السليمانية، رغبتهم في التخلص من قمع الحريات، الاعتقالات والتعذيب، الفساد المستشري، وخيبة الامل المريرة في وعود انتخابية لم يتحقق اقل القليل منها في مجال الخدمات الاساسية كالكهرباء والماء والخدمات الصحية والبطاقة التموينية بالاضافة الى توفير فرص العمل والدعم ، خاصة، للارامل والايتام والمتقاعدين لتوفير ما يستحقونه من حياة كريمة تقيهم مهانة العوز. 
يوحد ما بين المتظاهرين ، ايضا، عزمهم على ان تبقى التظاهرات سلمية، على الرغم من رد الفعل الهمجي من قبل رجال الأمن والشرطة، كما في اطلاق النار واعتقال واصابة المتظاهرين وقتل عدد منهم في في الكوت والسليمانية وبغداد.
ان الدعوة الى التظاهرات السلمية الموحدة لجميع ابناء الشعب وبشعارات تمثل الهم الوطني هي صوت ابناء الشعب الذين ضاقوا ذرعا بالوعود المبذولة بلا أي انجاز حقيقي والتي باتت في خطابيتها الرنانة تعبيرا عن الاستهانة بعقول المواطنين.
انها صوت المطالبين بالتحرير والكرامة وعزة النفس. أنها صوت المرأة العراقية البطلة المناضلة وهي تستعيد مكانتها التي طالما احتلتها ، تاريخيا،
  
ان تقود المتظاهرين نحو الحرية والمساواة واعادة بناء العراق كما يريد له ابنائه. انها صوت شعب يدرك جيدا انه قد وصل مرحلة حاسمة تجاوزت حدود الصبر الانساني ، وأن كرامته وعزة نفسه ومستقبل وطنه ومستقبل ابنائه يرتبط  ارتباطا وثيقا بما يفعله الآن وما سيفعله في الايام المقبلة. 
ان "تضامن المرأة لعراق مستقل وموحد" تساند كل اشكال ومستويات المقاومة النابعة من قلب بلادنا، وترى في التظاهرات  والاعتصامات الشعبية،  تعبيرا عن وحدة ابناء الشعب وممارسة تكفلها التشريعات القانونية الدولية والانسانية وهي حق من حقوق الانسان الاساسية وواجب اخلاقي ملزم للجميع.

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.--
