… 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.

Iraq’s recent history includes two far reaching events, on the 2 August 1990 Iraq’s invasion into Kuwait and on 19 March 2003 the US/UK invasion into Iraq. Whether political leaders will draw lessons from these events will be, at best, questionable. Iraqis continue to be wronged. Danger to life and turmoil remain a cruel part of Iraq’s reality in early 2013. The collective suffering of a nation is visibly all pervasive. It can not be hidden.
