||Another World is possible if…there is respect for international law and the sovereignty of nations - The Case of Iraq
It is a little over a year since Iraq was invaded, in the face of opposition from the biggest and most global anti-war movement in history which saw the bigger implications of the emerging pattern. The deadline for handing national sovereignty back to the citizens of Iraq approaches as resistance to the occupation intensifies.
What are the prospects for peace, democratization and reconstruction in Iraq? Who is the resistance? What do they want? TNI brings to Amsterdam five people, long experienced with Iraq and the bigger questions raised by the occupation, who have recently returned from Iraq to discuss these and other issues with you.
