Robin Cook-a-likes pose with their noses in anti sanctions action
Voices member Richard Byrne, who visited Iraq in January 2001 said "Everyone knew when Pinnochio lied because his nose grew. Mr Cook's nose doesn't grow but it's still obvious he is lying. Anyone who reads the UN's own documents, or reads the reports of the Save the Children Fund, Human Right';s Watch or CAFOD can tell Cook is lying. Pinnochio learnt to listen to his conscience and stopped lying. When he did that he stopped being a puppet and became human. We are calling on Mr. Cook to stop being America's puppet, listen to his conscience, stop lying and get human!"
Voices also launched their new website www.robincook.net (click on the briefing to watch Cook's nose grow.) the Save the Children Fund described sanctions as "a silent war on Iraq's children."
