Join the Truth Tellers

Issue section: 

The corpses are piling high in Iraq and the truth is being buried along with the bodies.

Seven hundred Black Watch soldiers destroy 50 houses in Fallujah and their haul is a tiny quantity of ammunition. This is reported in glowing terms as a successful operation as they detain unarmed 14 year old boys and leave the locals homeless. The BBC and other news networks connive in the lies by using predominantly US and British government sources with little heard from independent organisations such as the Red Cross or voices of the anti-war movement. The coverage given to Iraqi casualties and Iraqi opposition to the invasion, occupation and interim government is sickeningly inadequate. Media Workers Against the War are campaigning to right this wrong. We urge you to join us.
