[01 JUL 99] COVENTRY PEACE HOUSE PRESS RELEASE
Discussion On The Situation In Iraq

On Monday 5 July there will be a chance for people to discuss the current situation in Iraq. At Queens Road Baptist Church in Coventry at 7.30pm. Andrea Needham will be talking about her recent visit to Iraq in the media at the moment despite the suffering caused by the continuing bombing and continued use of sanctions.

Andrea said

"In a hospital ward in Basrah, we were present when a child died of gastro-enteritis – a perfectly curable condition. The wailing and crying of not just the child’s mother, but all the mothers in the ward, brought home the real impact of sanctions in a way no amount of statistics could."

The evening has been arranged by members of Coventry peace House, who also take part in a vigil outside the Belgrade Theatre every Wednesday 5pm til 7pm, which has been highlighting the issue for the past 18 months.
