Lift the Sanctions on Iraq: An Ad in the New York Times, July 28, 2000


[The following advertizement was placed in the New York Times on July 28, 2000 by the Fellowship of Reconciliation. John Dear and Susan Sarandon contacted nationally recognized people to speak out against the economic sanctions on Iraq; those listed each contributed significantly to making the ad possible.]

ARE THE CHILDREN OF IRAQ OUR ENEMIES?

Ten years ago, on August 6, 1990, the U.S. imposed economic sanctions on Iraq. Since then, over one million Iraqis, mostly children under five, have died.

Ten years is enough! The military sanctions on Iraq should continue, but the economic sanctions not only do not work, they are killing innocent Iraqi children.

We say, the time has come to stop killing Iraqi children.

LIFT THE ECONOMIC SANCTIONS ON IRAQ NOW!
