… and peace be upon you, O Fallujah: a CD with 20 pages booklet

by Tadhamun-Iraqi Women Solidarity on 21-02-2013

A CD with 20 pages booklet produced by Tadhamun – Iraqi Women Solidarity. It tells the story of the US-led attacks on Fallujah in April and November 2004, a year after the invasion and occupation of Iraq in 2003. It is told in an audio collage of Iraqi and non-Iraqi poetry, songs, music, testimonies, and news clips with the persistent sound of US Apaches hovering in the skies above the people of Iraq.

De recente geschiedenis van Irak wordt getekend door twee ingrijpende gebeurtenissen: op 2 augustus 1990 was er de Irakese invasie in Koeweit en op 19 maart 2003 de invasie van Irak door de Verenigde Staten samen met het Verenigd Koninkrijk. Het is – zacht uitgedrukt – twijfelachtig of de politieke leiders hieruit lessen hebben getrokken. Irakezen worden nog altijd onrechtvaardig behandeld. Het blijft er levensgevaarlijk en onrustig. Dat is de gruwelijke realiteit, ook vandaag. Het collectieve lijden van een natie is overal te zien. Dat kan niet verborgen blijven.
