Bombs have been dropped and lives shattered. Much of Iraq lies in ruins,
smashed, looted and then occupied by a hostile and unwanted invasion force.
In the face of the human suffering caused by the war on Iraq we must act
now against the crime of silence and impunity to write a counter-history.

* Could the doctrine of ?preventive war? ever be legal under international
law? * Can we record the crimes committed in launching this war of
aggression, during the military campaign and ongoing occupation? * Can the
initiation of any war be legitimate when overwhelmingly opposed by a global
anti-war movement that includes the citizens of every state involved? * Can
there be a grassroots space where we can initiate the process of providing
justice and accountability?





PRESENTATIONS, TESTIMONY AND VISUALS WILL INVESTIGATE:

- The U.S.-led war of aggression against Iraq

- Crimes committed during the declared military campaign

- Crimes committed during the ongoing occupation
