We call on those states responsible for the invasion and occupation of Iraq to terminate their illegal and immoral war, and express our solidarity with the Iraqi people in their struggle for peace, justice and self-determination.

In particular, we demand:

  1. An immediate end to the US and UK-led occupation of Iraq;
  2. Urgent action to fully address the current humanitarian crises facing Iraq’s people, including help for the more than three million refugees and displaced persons;
  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 demand justice for Iraq.

This statement was adopted by the Justice for Iraq conference in London on 19th July 2008. We plan to publish this more widely in future. If you would like to add your name to the list of supporters please contact us.

No reason to stay

Justice for Iraq will never of course concede that there ever was a good reason for British or any other foreign troops to be occupying Iraq. But if Iraq is now an "emergent democracy" then the wishes of the Iraqi Parliament should be taken as final marching orders to get out now!

Then there will not be any problems with the legal status of any troops. From then on any help and advice offered to the Iraqi people could be on their terms and not on the terms of the occupiers.
