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.

Rough Google Translation of the statement I received from Oday al Zaidy

[Laith: a name that means Lion]
explanation : Laith Mustapha Hemoud Al Dulaimy, member of Iraq provincial council was arrested on the 25th May on 'terrorism charges'. A tape of his confession was going to be aired in a press conference, when he and his fellow prisoner stood up and said the whole thing is staged and the confessions were extracted under torture.

We strongly deplore the barbaric action of insulting the detainee Laith al-Dulaimi carried out by the Government of the Green Zone, represented by the leadership of the Baghdad police  and his colleagues in the hall of the press conference. We are disgusted to learn that they used torture to extract false confessions for political purposes. These confessions are then used to indict them under the Terrorism act. Regardless of whether Laith al-Dulaimi, is innocent or not, what took place yesterday in the Conference Hall of humiliation and sectarian insults should have been stopped by any decent human being let alone an Iraqi claiming to be honorable and responsible. And if this is how Laith al-Dulaimi,  a member of the Baghdad Provincial Council is treated we fear that the other prisoners who are languishing for years in the prisons of Iraq, from Zakho (near Turkish border) to Fao (the southern most town) fare even worse.

Laith had the opportunity to dare raise his voice to the world to expose the torture affecting him and his fellow prisoners, who would convey the voice of the thousands oppressed and languishing for years in the prisons up and down the country? We in the Popular Movement to save Iraq condemn this barbaric behaviour. It appears that no Iraqi citizen no matter what his/her position is immune from human rights violations and torture  under this repressive and authoritarian government. We wish that the players of this political process would have a ‘small taste’ of  the hell the detainees in the prisons of the government since 2003 have experienced /are experiencing. We wish they would experience first hand, the injustice and grievance experienced by their own people while they are enjoying Iraq’s riches.
We  managed to hear Laith al-Dulaimi ‘s call to stop the injustices, how many Laiths are there in the prisons of Iraq whose voices we do not hear?
We call on international organizations to intervene to save the detainees, including Mr. Laith al-Dulaimi. We received information that Laith is now at the end of worst torture practices since his outburst.
We are preparing for a protest calling for the release of innocent detainees in the prisons of Baghdad and northern Iraq, and ‘that is weakest form of action our religious duty demands’   [this is the least we should do]...

Signatory movements to come out on the day of victory Iraqi detainee

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.--
