"Sanction on Iraq: Children Are Still Dying"
Speaker: Connie Hammond

Thursday, March 7, 5:00 p.m.
115 Stillman, OSU, 1947 College Rd., Columbus, OH

Connie Hammond is on the coordinating committee of the National 
Network to End the War Against Iraq (the NNEWAI Home Page: 
<www.endthewar.org>), as well as actively involved in the Columbus 
Campaign for Arms Control and the Progressive Peace Coalition. NNEWAI 
is a nationwide coalition of over sixty organizations united to work 
for a common cause: ending the illegal, unjust, and inhumane war 
being waged against the people of Iraq by member states of the United 
Nations, led by the United States.  Guided by the spirit of 
grassroots democracy, NNEWAI seek to end the sanctions against Iraq; 
abolish the illegal no-fly zones; stop ongoing bombing; ban Depleted 
Uranium (DU) weapons; and repair human and environmental damages 
caused by DU and other weapons.

Watch the video "In Iraq, the Children Are Still Dying..." - 
featuring a 2 November 2001 speech by Hans von Sponeck, former 
administrator of the U.N. Oil for Food Program - and join our 
discussion on how to end the war on Iraq!

"Approximately 250 people die every day in Iraq due to the effect of 
the sanctions."  --  UNICEF, April 1998

"More than one million Iraqis have died -- 567,000 of them children 
-- as a direct consequence of economic sanctionsŠ."  -- U.N. Food and 
Agriculture Organization (FAO), December 1995

"In fact, the UN Security Council is sustaining sanctions that are 
killing about 7,000 Iraqi children each month and they know that. 
That is intentional; that is genocide."  -- Dennis Halliday, former 
U.N. Humanitarian Coordinator for Iraq
