Here is a piece from John Pilger

HOW CAN YOU PROTEST? Mar 20 2003


JOHN PILGER on what we can all do to fight this illegal and immoral attack on Iraq

John Pilger


WHEN Bush and Blair begin their illegal and immoral attack on a country that offers us no threat, we all have a choice.

We can wring our hands and say there is nothing we can do in the face of such powerful piracy - or we can reclaim the democracy that has been so corrupted by an elected dictatorship (in Bush´s case, unelected).

There is only one responsible way to achieve the second goal. The polite term is civil disobedience. The street term is rebellion.

In 1946, Justice Robert Jackson, the chief prosecutor at the Nuremberg trials of the Nazi leadership, said that the "very essence" of international justice "is that individuals have international duties which transcend national obligations of obedience imposed by the state".

The British government is about to commit a great criminal act. That is not rhetoric - it is true. Every tenet of international law makes that clear, not least the United Nations Charter itself. Indeed, the judges at Nuremberg were quite clear about what they considered the gravest of all war crimes: that of an unprovoked invasion of a sovereign territory.

In the face of this impending crime, the "international duty which transcend national obligations of obedience" now belongs to you, the millions of people who have understood the nature of the crime. Now, you have both the right and the duty to act.

Rebellion against a government committing a crime in your name is now of vital importance. Silence and inaction will only embolden Blair, this man who has taken this country to war unnecessarily five times in his six years in office. Remember his remark that North Korea, a nuclear power, is "next".

On the day of the attack on Iraq, leave what you are doing if you can. Leave your home, work, college, school. Join a demonstration. If you are unsure where to go, contact the Stop the War Coalition on 07951 235915. Their website is www.stopwar.org.uk

Or get in touch with Globalise Resistance, which is organising mass walkouts and street blockades in the cities. Phone them on 020 7053 2071. Their website is www.resist.org.uk

Amnesty International is another source: 020 7814 6200.

Their website is www.amnesty.org.uk

There will be non-violent protests by Reclaim the Bases, which is organising gate blockades and peace vigils at military bases. Contact 07887 585721. Their website is www.reclaimthebases.org.uk

Be encouraged that the revolt is already under way. In January, Scottish train drivers refused to move munitions. In Italy, people have been blocking dozens of trains carrying American military personnel and weapons, and dockers have refused to load arms shipments. US military bases have been blockaded in Germany, and thousands at Shannon in Ireland have made it difficult for the US military to refuel its planes on their way to Iraq.

Propaganda is a weapon almost as lethal as any bomb. For months, "weapons of mass destruction" has been a phoney news issue. As former chief UN weapons inspector Scott Ritter has said constantly, Iraq is "90-95 per cent" disarmed. The current head of the weapons inspection team, Hans Blix, has all but called Blair and Bush knaves and liars. When asked what secret arsenals there were in Iraq, one of his inspectors said: "Zilch".

And yet we have been forced to participate in this charade: to debate and analyse its specious agenda. BBC current affairs programmes, on radio and television, have consistently promoted the government´s warmongering as legitimate by channelling and echoing its ever-changing deceptions.

A memorandum leaked last week, written by Richard Sambrook, a senior BBC executive, warns programme makers against broadcasting too much dissent and "attracting some of the more extreme anti-war views (even though) there is no question there is a majority public view which is against unilateral US action."

That he regards principled objection to the killing of innocent people as "extreme" while saying nothing about the murderous willingness of Blair and his apologists reflects the distortion of intellect and morality that pervades so much of BBC current affairs.

When a maverick BBC documentary dared to investigate Israel´s weapons of mass destruction and the use of gas by the Israelis, thus showing the hypocrisy of Bush and Blair, it was dropped from a prime slot on BBC2 at the last moment and put out at 11.20 pm - when most people were asleep.

In the United States, where a recent survey found that 75 per cent of current affairs interviews were with either current or former government or military officials, censorship is more entrenched. However, when the attack begins, watch how politicians and former military brass and assorted "experts" fill the small screen in this country.

Propaganda may well have made the difference between war and peace, and life and death for untold numbers of Iraqi men, woman and children. Had the great broadcasting institutions and the great newspapers, on both sides of the Atlantic, not channelled and echoed the lies and the false agendas, but relentlessly exposed them, the Bush gang, I believe, would not have been able to go ahead with this outrage. Neither would Blair.

For this reason, journalists and broadcasters now have a special duty to rebel. Wherever they are, they should follow their conscience, not the demands of a propaganda machine, however subtle and seductive, and materially rewarding.

They might compare their comfortable lives with those of journalists in dangerous countries, like Turkey, an American satellite, which, like Britain, has a population overwhelmingly hostile to an attack on its neighbour, Iraq.

Many Turkish journalists have done their job fearlessly and exposed the mendacious nature of what George Orwell called "official truth". Some have gone to prison and others have been murdered by the state; but their courageous actions have provided millions of their compatriots with the truth.

Unlike in Britain, for example, a great many Turks are aware of the deaths and suffering of Iraqis caused by the American and British led embargo.

Winston Churchill, when he was colonial secretary, said: "I do not understand this squeamishness about the use of gas. I am strongly in favour of using poisoned gas against uncivilised tribes." Nothing has changed. That was 80 years ago. He was referring to Kurds and Iraqis.

When the Bush/Blair attack begins, the insidious equivalent of Churchill´s poison gas will be used by the Americans and almost certainly by the British.

This is depleted uranium, a sinister component of tank shells and airborne missiles. In truth, it is a form of nuclear warfare, and all the evidence suggests that its use in the Gulf War in 1991 has caused an epidemic of cancer in southern Iraq: what the doctors there call "the Hiroshima effect", especially among children.

America and Britain have denied Iraq equipment with which to clean up its contaminated battlefields, and towns and villages, which are about to be poisoned all over again, just as they have denied cancer treatment equipment and drugs, just as this week they caused the United Nations to dismantle an efficient Iraqi food distribution system.

As the dissident reporter Robert Fisk asked recently: Who will have the courage to describe the effects of depleted uranium, a true weapon of mass destruction, a crime against humanity, as part of the "liberation" that will be the headlined propaganda?

By refusing to echo state lies, and by recognising and rebelling against censorship by omission, no British journalist risks jail, or worse, as in Turkey.

Instead, they begin to restore honour to their craft and, along with millions of their readers, listeners and viewers, the very best of people, reclaim democracy from its powerful thieves.

I have never seen any administration so hell bent and war hungry as this one. Bush is more than just ignorant, he is an idiot and poses more of a threat to world peace than Saddam ever was and is. This troika of warmongers (Cheney, Rumsfield and Bush) should be tried for war crimes and war seems to run in his family, taking on where the father left off and showing the world his swashbuckling, cowboy, rodeo style of Government. If I was an American I´d be embarrassed to have him as a leader and his administration will probably be the most hated in the entire history of America. History has taught him nothing (if he even had a proper education that is) and he seems oblivious and unwilling to look and learn from great past presidents like Roosevelt, Kennedy and Nixon. He is a man possessed and war is the biggest business in the US. They thrive on it and I can now understand why they killed Kennedy.

Bush is finishing what his warmonger father started.He became president by the help of his Brother who was governer in Florida.Dick Chenny´s Company has got contract for ending oil well fires which will be ignited for His benefit by Ameriacn Soldiers.
In our folklore it is said that Axe can only be used to cut wood ;when wood handle is attached to it.If our own brothers do not help US or even had the courage to stand like France did...This won´t be happenening today. But We should protest by the way our Respected friend Alicia has pointed out....I request to you all please Do participate in every possible form of protest.Thank you

It is a biggest terrorism ,but now no any country can take ,or think it as a terrorism becoz it is on muslims but if the same thing happen in usa ,and israil then it is a terrorism but if it is in muslim country then it is not any thing
They have a back of many muslim countries ,and by using them they are killing muslims.. the point is that if osama was terrorist then he was also treated by usa not by any other country ,usa is a bone of contension in all over the world ,usa dont want peace ... it is open terrorism ,..but no one is listening the screams of these innocent people becoz usa think that they are burdon on the world ..becoz usa has many greeds behind this war ..like usa wants to rule on the oil of iraq
the actual terrorist in my openion is usa own ,,who wants to rule over the world forcely according to its evil wishes .....only the usa is responsible for all the terrorism in the world ,,,so we all should have to take part in resisting the usa for this war ....

. . .Well, belaming others has become our old habit; only we are responsible of all this hassle going on in the name of iraq war or many other things like this in the past. So long as we do not find out our own mistakes or I should say blunders we will surely be devoured by any big or small power of the world because we have have turned our faces from the actual mecca and are looking forward to the mecca of united states we will be the ugliest creatture of the universe. DO we not know that the first letter of the holy Quran is ´iqra´ and what have we done to the people,our wealthy and resourceful gods of the society spend millions of rupees for their luxuries and for the fights of the roosters and on several other things, but we cannot open a school girls and boys, we are doing injustice to our own poor relatives, eating their share in lands and in the wealth which their father has left and we craft a false medical certificate to make them insensible , we kill the women after rape, Tell me which human crime is not there which we commit and that has been clearly prohibitted in the holy book and God the almighty has told it clearly that He is the God of all humanity, He is ´rabbul-alameen´ not ´ rabbul-muslemeen´ and those people who really do justice,with out color, caste and creed and do humanitarian work for the world will be the rightful people.I am happy with this situation because the ´amals of people dar surate nadir or changis me girraft´ ;so this is what happenning and will go on so long as they do not change. Good is not only to stand for salat at mecca and go to hajj[ which is only been for us to discuss our problems] or give the daily alms to fakir and we are the favourites of God;no no no this is all wrong . We must change and if we do not change then Nature will com pel us to change whether we like it or not ,just as this is occuring,and I tell you soon pakistan is going to be like this, this is my warning to the ididot muslims .When spain was going from their hands the mullas were discussing whether the trouser should be half inch or two inch, and now iraq is going from your hands you are giving false comfort to eachother by saying every thing will be alright; this is totally wrong; we will have our share like this in this world , well in the hereafter the punishment will be there , one cannot escape ,the computer of GOD will show you all you have done but in this world you cannot escape from the law of requital because this world is the action and the reaction will be there . I am sorry to write all this but my mind is full of scorpions, he is sindhi, the other punjabi and there are muhajirs who after fifty years are not naturalized, again ,he is shia and ther is sunni, agha khani , khoja, christian ,hindu ,deobandi, brailvi,nakhsbandi, wahabi ,bidatti,then again he is phanjo talpur and he is parayo, what sickness is this ; why don´t we be able to think on a large panorama when the universal GOD is one.

This war seems to be bombarded with propaganda.

First of all, is Saddam dead or alive? Instead of stating on the news that Saddam is wounded at times and then saying that he was rolled out on a stretcher and then stating that he might be dead, why can´t we just say that we have no clue to his status.

Next, a chemical factory was found by our troops. Why has nothing more come out of this. Tell us that this factory does not have to do with producing chemical weapons or tell us otherwise. Instead the news tells us that when it is safe, the factory will be further investigated. Trust me, if there was any evidence of chemical weapons produced here, the news stations would have been all over it claiming a huge victory and proving to itself that it is doing the right thing.

Third, we have been stating that we are within 60 miles of Baghdad. Why is it that we have not entered into Baghdad yet? Please don´t tell me that the sandstorms are preventing us from seeing ourselves in. Instead, I would like the truth which is to tell the world that we are afraid to enter due to Saddam´s statement that chemical warfare would persist. This is the reason for our mass airstrikes instead.

I would love to see Bush and his forces find these weapons of mass destruction so that the world would be at ease and know that this is a just cause. Otherwise, is it worth telling an innocent Iraqi or U.S. soldier´s son or daughter that they will be living the rest of their lives without a father?
