10 years of occupation Conference

Bush's democracy: Corruption

We congratulate the UAE on the unveiling of the highest tower in the whole world, that has cost less than half of the expenses of mending the pavements in Nassiryia

Iraqi woman arrested, who will protect her?
Halt All Executions! Abolish The Death Penalty!

We women of WSIUI 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 practices, they inherited from the occupiers. We are alarmed by credible media reports of the Green Zone government’s intentions of executing hundreds of Iraqi men and women.

ميثاق العدالة للعراق

لايزال الشعب العراقي يعيش في حالة من الفوضى والخراب منذ غزوه وإحتلاله عام 2003
،وهو ما نضع مسؤليته بالكامل على الدول المسؤولة عن الغزو والأحتلال إننا نعلن تضامننا مع الشعب العراقي في نضاله من اجل السلام والعدالة وحق تقرير المصير، وندين ممارسات الدول التي ساهمت في الغزو والأحتلال كونها خرقت الشرعية الدولية والأخلاقية وحقوق الإنسان، ولذلك ندعو لتبني ميثاق دولي يحقق أستعادة الشرعية والعدالة في العراق يستند الى :

أولاً: الأنهاء الفوري للإحتلال الأمريكي البريطاني وإعتباركل الأتفاقات الأمنية و الأستراتيجية حتى لحظة نهاية الأحتلال غير شرعية ولاغية حسب ماتقره الشرائع الدولية
ثانياً: أتخاذ أجراءات عاجلة لمعالجة الأزمات الأنسانية الراهنة التي يعانيها الشعب العراقي بما في ذلك أغاثة اكثر من ثلاثة مليون لأجى في خارج العراق و عدد مماثل من المهجّرين داخله

ثالثاً: أنهاء كافة التدخلات الأجنبية في شوون العراق الإقتصادية بما في ذلك التدخل في إدارة ثرواته النفطية لكي يستطيع العراقيون ممارسة حقهم في تقرير المصير؛
رابعاً: دفع التعويضات ومقاضاة كافة الدول الاجنبية المسؤولة عن الحرب وعن الحصار الذي فـُرض على العراق في السنين السابقة للغزو
خامساً: مقاضاة جميع المسؤولين عن جرائم الحرب وانتهاكات حقوق الانسان وسرقة موارد ثروات العراق؛

أننا نعتقد أن هذه أبسط مستلزمات ضمان العدالة للعراق وأن هذه المسلتزمات يجب أن تتوضح بوثائقة تفصيلية أخرى

Justice for Iraq Charter

Iraqis continue to live in the anarchy and destruction caused by the invasion and occupation in 2003. The responsibility for this suffering falls squarely on the states responsible for the invasion and occupation. We express our solidarity with the Iraqi people in their struggle for peace, justice and self-determination, and condemn the illegal and immoral invasion and occupation and their consequences. We therefore call for an international charter to restore legality and justice in Iraq to include:

1. An immediate end to the US and UK-led occupation of Iraq, and the annulment of any security and strategic agreements enacted under occupation.

2. Urgent action to fully address the current humanitarian crises facing Iraq’s people, including help for the more than three million refugees and similar number of displaced persons inside the country;

3. An end to all foreign interference in Iraq's affairs, including its oil industry, so that Iraqis can exercise their right to self-determination;

4. Compensation and reparations from those countries responsible for war and sanctions on Iraq;

5. Prosecution of all those responsible for war crimes, human rights abuses, and the theft of Iraq's resources.
We believe that these are the minimal requirements for justice for Iraq, nd have to be elaborated in detailed documents.

The continuing deterioration of women's rights in Iraq

Haifa Zangana's presentation given in the European Parliament in Brussels on 29 January 2014.

The UN in Iraq has asked the government to facilitate the opening of a humanitarian corridor to reach displaced and stranded families in Anbar province. Currently, it is impossible to reach the area from Baghdad and relief agencies are using roads coming from northern Iraq.

Why am I talking about this and not about workshops for women’s empowerment and gender equality and political participation? Because In order to fully address women’s issues and come with helpful policy suggestions we need to address women not as separate from the rest of society, but as a part of it together with men.

.. and allow me to read the rest of the report :

“Other areas of Iraq including Baghdad, Erbil, Kerbala, Salah-al-Din and Ninewa have witnessed the arrival of thousands of displaced people. People are reportedly without money for food and lack suitable clothing for the rainy conditions. Children are not in school and sanitary conditions, particularly for women, are inadequate.”

The suffering of the displaced is far beyond the sheer loss of a house, it is the loss of neighborhood, community; schools and health service, the feeling of safety associated with familiarities and on the long run the submission to the newly manufactured identity . The lack of one of these or the combination of all leads to extreme levels of trauma, fear, depression, anxiety and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder[2].

The regression in women’s situation is so devastating that she has reached the bottom of human needs. Just to survive.

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.--
