US and NZ must get out of Iraq


US and NZ must get out of Iraq

'Saddam Hussein's capture has taken the media spotlight off Helen Clark's half-truths and lies to the New Zealand people. It was revealed on the weekend that the New Zealand troops are a fully integrated contributor to the bloody occupation of Iraq.' Said Peace Action Wellington member Valerie Morse

'The capture of Saddam Hussein by United States troops is no justification for the illegal and immoral war on the people of Iraq. There is still no significant evidence of any weapons of mass destruction or links to Al-Queda on which the entire case for war was based.'

'A recent report showed that the occupation of Iraq has cost the lives of up to 50,000 Iraqi people. Blood is on the hands of George Bush and his ruthless 'friend' Helen Clark. The US and its 'coalition of the killing' must get out of Iraq now'

Peace Action Wellington demands an immediate withdrawal of all NZ military support for the war and an apology from Helen Clark for lying to New Zealand about our role in the occupation.
