25-12-2004 17:56On Jan 30th, Iraqis from all over the UK will be voting for the first time, in an illegal election, that is not recognised by International law because it is a government that has been established by the USA which is also an occupying power within a country that is still at war.
In the UK, Iraqis are also going to be able to vote for fellow Iraqis, who also happen to be fellow British Citizens like Aiyad Allawi - the Prime Minister and through the process of democracy, they will be allowed to govern a foreign country.
Love or loath Saddam, atleast he had an Iraqi passport!

Succesful campaigning has seen them continue doing so instead of reverting back to GE soy which was expected.

Throughout the ESF process, I kept on having this dark vision: the European Social Forum office in London as an encampment deep in the Congolese Jungle. Like the Heart of Darkness – Ken Livingstone a 21^st Century Kurtz. Picture him: lurking in shadow, brooding in the last rays of a blood red sunset, deep within his humid, plastic-plant-filled office. Picture him: at the end of a long, dark corridor lined with the heads of SWP members and GLA officials who displeased him…
