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.

Statement: Enough is enough hands of our Christians, hands off our people

We Women of WSIUI are outraged and appalled to see our Christians being singled out and targeted by terrorists, claiming Islam and serving the Zionist agenda in the region.

Our people are foiling the occupiers' plans and despite sixty years of atrocities and aggression, the Palestinians have never given up the fight for their right for independence and self determination.

This is another stage in the plan to fragment Iraq that started with the invasion of 2003. Keeping Iraq unstable and divided prevents it from taking up its role in the region and leaves it an easy target for malevolent forces in the region and beyond.

This is all part of the plan to plunge the whole region into sectarian and religious futile conflicts, in order to guarantee the safety and security of Israel.

We would like to remind people that the first attack on a place of worship in the history of modern Iraq, took place in 1951 on the Baghdad Synagogue. Mossad has already acknowledged responsibility for this act of terrorism.

We hold the occupiers and the ‘very expensive’ and useless occupation government of the ‘Green Zone’ legally and morally responsible for the attacks on our defenceless people.

The only way we can save our people is to resist the occupiers and their plans.

We mourn our martyrs and vow to continue our campaigning in support of the struggle of our people against the imperialist aggression on our country.
