“Come and see our overflowing morgues"

But Bush will not withdraw and apparently no one can force him to do so. So, the killing will continue unabated behind the media’s iron curtain while the overall situation on the ground continues to deteriorate. Eventually, after years of ethnic cleansing, sectarian fighting and stepped-up military operations; the position of the US will become untenable and the troops will come home. But the cost in human terms will be enormous. Already one million Iraqis have been killed in the war and 4 million others have become refugees.

Last Saturday at the 9th Annual Rally against Custody Deaths, some familiar faces were missing, but like every year there were also plenty new ones, having lost a loved one during the past year. Amongst them the family and friends of Jason McPherson, who had died on the 18th January 2007 in Police Custody in Notting Hill.
