> RAMSEY CLARK LEADS PEACE DELEGATION TO IRAQ
> WILL GO TO SITE OF SUNDAY'S COALITION BOMBING THAT KILLED

> "Stop the War Before It Starts"
>
> While the U.S. prepares for war against Iraq, former U.S.
> Attorney General Ramsey Clark has just arrived in Iraq
> with a five-person fact-finding peace delegation.
>
> The delegation is meeting with high government officials,
> family members of people who were killed in the U.S.
> bombing of Basra August 26, and visiting hospitals and
> food distribution centers. The group is touring Basra at
> the site of yesterday's bombing raid that killed eight
> civilians.
>
> The purpose of this trip is to report on the latest
> effects of U.S.-led UN sanctions against the Iraqi
> civilian population, and to show solidarity with the
> people of Iraq who are facing the prospect of an imminent
> US war of aggression. Ramsey Clark is the founder and
> chairperson of the U.S.-based International Action Center,
> which has campaigned against the devastating economic
> sanctions on Iraq for the last decade.
>
> The delegation also includes Mara Verheyden-Hilliard, an
> attorney and co-founder of the Partnership for Civil
> Justice?LDEF; Johnnie Stevens, co-director of the People?s
> Video Network; Kadouri al-Kaysi, coordinator of the
> Committee in Solidarity with the Iraqi People; and Brian
> Becker, co-director of the International Action Center.
>
> "It is clear from our discussions with both officials and
> average Iraqis that the people of this country hope that
> people of conscience in the U.S. and around the world will
> join together in building a massive movement to stop the
> war being planned by George Bush, Donald Rumsfeld and the
> other warmongers in the White House and Pentagon," stated
> Mara Verheyden-Hilliard.
>
> "Iraq is still reeling from the impact of economic
> sanctions," Verheyden-Hilliard continued. "In our meetings
> with officials from the health ministry today we have
> learned that mortality rates for children and the elderly
> have actually increased in the last twelve months. More
> than 8,000 people die needlessly this month from hunger
> and water-borne diseases and the degrading of Iraq's
> health care system. According to the United Nations
> statistics more than a million Iraqis have perished from
> sanctions. The so-called debate in the U.S. establishment
> is over whether Iraq should be invaded today or tomorrow
> or next year. That misses the point. The US has conducted
> an illegal non-stop war against Iraq for more than ten
> years and it must end now. We are organizing against war
> and sanctions."
>
> Clark is the author of a recent letter (full text at
> www.iacenter.org) addressed to the UN Security Council and
> copied to the UN General Assembly, denouncing new plans
> for a U.S. war on Iraq -- plans that include the use of
> 250,000 troops. Since its dissemination at the UN, the
> letter has been translated into Arabic, French, German,
> Italian, Portuguese, Russian and Chinese.
>
> "Twelve years ago when the U.S. organized the aerial
> slaughter it was able to build an international coalition
> against Iraq. Most governments in the coalition joined as
> a result of US bullying and coercion. Today the US
> government is isolated. All the people of the world and
> all twenty two of the Arab League governments oppose this
> plan for unprovoked aggression that violates all
> international law," stated Ramsey Clark. "We have come to
> Iraq to help galvanize the active mobilization of world
> opinion which stands in opposition to this planned war.
> This war can be stopped but only if the people of the
> world take action now."
>
> The third edition of Ramsey Clark's book The Fire This
> Time: U.S. War Crimes in the Gulf will be released in
> mid-September 2002. The book constitutes the most
> comprehensive and well researched analysis of the events
> leading up to the 1991 Gulf War and the war crimes and
> crimes against humanity committed by US and Allied forces
> during the 42-day assault. The third edition is being
> published by the International Action Center.
>
> Ramsey Clark and other members of the peace delegation to
> Iraq are available for interviews via telephone hookup.
