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.

So the troops may be leaving, but what happens next?

The UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown has indicated that most, if not all, UK troops may be withdrawn from Iraq by the end of 2008. But should the anti-war movement be satisfied with that?

Some of us in the anti-war movement have put together a discussion document entitled Justice for Iraq, which sets out a broad range of draft demands aimed at starting to address a portion of the appalling damage caused by the invasion and occupation of Iraq over the last five years. We invite all those who desire a free Iraq to read this and then to get involved in the process of developing these initial rough ideas into a solid campaign platform that we can launch in 2008.
