Appeal to stop repression and state crimes in Iraq

 

For the BRussells Tribunal, its supporters and audience, secret prisons in Iraq are no surprise. We made repeated alerts during years that repression in the “New Iraq” is systematic.

Repression in Iraq takes multiple forms: deprivation of resources and services, arrests, assassinations, deportation of millions, torture of every kind, death squads, hanging and other death penalties, confiscating property and houses, blowing up residences, markets and groupings, killing at checkpoints and in the streets for no reason, trade of children and women, inhuman conditions in secret or public prisons, rape of children, men and women, killing from the air, killing on identity, kidnappings, stealing during investigation, extorting money from prisoners, stealing organs in hospitals, killing academics, journalists, doctors and state servants, threats, deprivation of legal rights and human rights, imprisonment without charge for long periods of time, re-imprisonment of the innocent after release, illegal and unfair trials, etc. All Iraqi communities are victims of this repression.

This repression, coupled with corruption and a policy of disinformation and lies and the fomentation of civil strife, is a hell of blood and fear in which Iraqis live. Iraqis know this well. They know that the American withdrawal from cities is in reality handing the dirty job to their local puppets. Maliki is the proconsul of this repression. It is his electoral platform and his way to remain prime minister.

International institutions and human rights associations hesitated for a long time before divulgating the reality to Western and international public opinion, despite multiple alerts sent by numerous Iraqi sources on the tragic situation in Iraq. Now it is done. We support every effort and action to prevent local Iraqi authorities and the US occupation from continuing their criminal repression of Iraqis, to make the criminals involved accountable for their crimes, and to compensate the victims.

We call on the UN General Assembly and the UN Security Council, with the aid of human rights associations and institutions, to take action to save the Iraqi people from these bloody policies and criminal authorities. We call on individuals, associations, institutions and governments to constitute a united front to take action to stop the repression in Iraq.
