VOICES FOR PEACE /
La Crosse Coalition Against the Wars
It is now May, and will soon enough be August, when we will mark the 11th year of sanctions against the people of Iraq. The word is getting out, indeed, has already reached the likes of Colin Powell, that the sanctions are hugely destructive and should be abandoned as a complete failure. Unfortunately, apparently even Colin Powell cannot reach the ears of the administration.
Fortunately, there are still many people who care, and will continue to confront the American people with our government's brutal and inhumane policy. We are continuing that effort, in our modest way; with every vigil there are at least a handful of people who learn for the first time what is happening in Iraq. How many Iraqis have died at our hands? We cannot know. But we can know how many Iraqis have suffered at our hands since then: ALL OF THEM.
