MESSAGES TO THE PEOPLE - Commemorating 5 years of war in IRAQ

Cartoon by Latuff
On 20 March 2003, at 5.30am, the American army and its allies bombarded Baghdad. The war on Iraq had officially started. Blood and ink would flow in abundance. Five years later, with that war still ongoing, we, as writers, are sending a message to the people. We appeal to each and every one of you, to make you think.

95 statements from all over the world, in solidarity with the people of Iraq.

The bottom line

The invasion of Iraq was a criminal act.

The occupation of Iraq remains a criminal act.

The British government under Blair and the United States administration are war criminals.
It's as simple as that.

Harold Pinter, Nobel Prize in literature 2005
