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.

Closing down Al Baghdadiya satellite TV channel

2nd Nov 2010
Iraqi government closed the offices of Baghdadiya TV station (Muntadhar Al Zaidy used to work for) and is actively preventing them from conducting any media work. The statement by JFO considers this decision to be a new blow for the freedom of the press.
JFO condemns this unecplained decision, that came straight after the TV channel established a link with the hostage takers inside the church on Sunday 31st Oct 2010
