Seattle Site of the Week:

Citizens Concerned for the People of Iraq

"CCPI is working to end the U.N. / U.S. economic sanctions on Iraq. This August will mark the start of the 11th year of the trade embargo, which combined with the Gulf War targeting of civilian infrastructure has impoverished the Iraqi population and visited brutal effects on those most vulnerable.

"According to the U.N. Children's Fund (UNICEF), the sanctions have directly contributed to the deaths of half a million children under age five and continue to contribute to over 5,000 'excess' children's deaths per month.

"The sanctions against Iraq have been widely condemned as a form of warfare, a weapon of mass destruction, directed against the civilian population. Among their effects are collapse of the economy, widespread chronic malnutrition, and breakdown of the public health system.

"However, sanctions are being maintained at the insistence of our U.S. administration. As Seattle Times editor Mindy Cameron recently wrote, 'Last month, [I was] asked the question that lingers: Someday, when the world knows what went on in Iraq after the Gulf War, they will say to Americans, "Where were you guys?"'

"Visit the CCPI web site, contact us at (206) 789-5565 or, or attend an upcoming event to HELP END THE SILENT SLAUGHTER OF THE PEOPLE OF IRAQ."
