Eyewitness To Iraq Massacre - Moreland Peace Group

Eyewitness To Iraq Massacre

Invitation to Moreland Peace Group event

EYEWITNESS TO IRAQ MASSACRE

Donna Mulhearn, a volunteer aid worker recently returned from six months in Iraq, will present a unique and personal account of life under occupation at a meeting to be held at:

Brunswick Town Hall on Sunday, August 29, at noon.

The presentation, organised by the Moreland Peace Group, will include stories, photographs and video footage from occupied Iraq, otherwise not seen in Australia.

Donna was one of only five foreigners present in Fallujah during the US military assault on the city that resulted in the death of thousands of civilians.

She came under fire from American troops while trying to deliver medical aid to a clinic.

"The siege on Fallujah was a massacre," she said.

"American snipers were randomly shooting women and children. The media was denied entry to the city so it went unreported by the mainstream media."

Donna was in Iraq for the first time last year before and during the war as part of the human shield movement.

She returned to Iraq late last year to set up a shelter for street kids in Baghdad.

During this time she experienced first-hand the hardships of daily life in occpued Iraq and witnessed the impact of the war on ordinary Iraqi people.

"The suffering of the Iraqi people is not portayed in the mainstream media, there are so many stories that have been left untold.

"I tell stories about the human cost of war.

"Life in Baghdad is extremely difficult. The Iraqi people are physically and emotionally exhausted and seek the peace that can only come as a result of a full withdrawal of foreign troops from Iraq."

Donna's presentation reveals the reality of war and the consequences of violence on the people of Iraq."

Campbell On: the US demonising of Iran

Satan may not exist, but the Evil One has always been a handy tool for priests and politicians alike.

Currently, Iran is the latest bogey conjured up by Washington to (a) justify its foreign policy interventions and (b) distract attention from its foreign policy failures.

Once upon a time, the Soviet Union was the nightmare threat for the entire Cold War era – and since then the US has cast the Taliban, al Qaeda, and Islamic State in the same demonic role. Iran is now the latest example…More
