Up to the end of the elections all communications within Iraq have ceased, they are effectively cut-off from the world and each other. In a country fighting for basic rights there has descended a new method in the fight against ‘Insurgents’, which I call QUARANTINE IRAQ
UK protest groups are worried that this action will inhibit Iraqis’ freedoms and that democracy is being stifled.
The Iraq Solidarity Campaign believe that this move is not a good idea and would like people of the world to support the people of Iraq;
“We would also ask that members of the Iraqi Community also write and make phone calls of protest to their nearest re-opened Iraqi Embassy aswel as to their members of the British Parliament. ”
As the events unfold it seems prudent to mention that Kassim Imhawi, a senior official in Iraq’s Communications Ministry, was gunned down on the 16th December 2004. Al-jazeera reports that officials are constantly targeted by anti-occupation and anti-government rebels and now it seems that the pro-occuption and pro-government groups are shutting down Iraq in favour of freedom and democracy.
While the interim government talks with Washington, London, the UN and localised forces, the entire civilian population is gagged and bound until they have voted-in their new leaders.
This report hasn’t hit any newspaper or media source as far as I can find which tells me that even in the UK, people have had their voices silenced.
Why is this not reported in The Times, The Telegraph, The Guardian or Sun? Where are our reporters? Distant voices unheard or distant voices silenced?
