Electronic Iraq (eIraq) []

A brand new online news project, Electronic Iraq -- found at -- has been launched by veteran antiwar campaigners Voices in the Wilderness (founded 1996) and respected Middle East supplementary news publishers, the Electronic Intifada (founded 2001).

Electronic Iraq was launched on 8 February 2003 as the U.S. government made clear its determination to go to war against Iraq. Based firmly on humanitarian foundations, the Electronic Iraq online magazine offers News & Analysis, Opinion/Editorial, Iraq Diaries, International Law, Aid & Development, Fact Sheets, and Action & Activism.

The Iraq Diaries section offers eyewitness reports from Iraq, and Electronic Iraq's intention is to publish diary accounts from on the ground during any hostilities.

The Electronic Iraq website utilises the latest in technology to publish reports from around the world, including from on the ground in Iraq, easily added to the site by nontechnical writers and editors of the Electronic Iraq team. Content from this website can be easily syndicated onto other friendly sites by webmasters.

Please join the Electronic Iraq news list to stay informed about Iraq.

Please join EI's Weekday Press Picks List for a daily compilation of reportage about Iraq and Palestine from a wide variety of sources.

Voices in the Wilderness (VitW) []

VitW is a joint US/UK campaign to end the economic sanctions against the people of Iraq. Since March 1996, nearly fifty Voices delegations have traveled to Iraq. Each small delegation represents thousands of people in America and England who oppose cruel economic warfare. We demand that the UN Security Council and the US government end the immoral and unjust economic sanctions that target the regime of Saddam Hussein but in fact punish millions of Iraqi people, young and old.

We are teachers, social workers, authors, health care professionals, trades people, and church workers who, in the tradition of Mohandas Gandhi, advocate nonviolence as a means for social change. We oppose the development, storage and use by any country of weapons of mass destruction, be they nuclear, biological, chemical -- or economic.

Today, as the United States makes new threats against Iraq, we are maintaining a constant presence in Iraq in solidarity with the Iraqi people. In the schools and hospitals, on the streets and in the homes of Baghdad, Basra, Mosul and other cities we have seen the effects of more than a decade of economic sanctions and frequent bombings. Now we see the anger and fear caused by new threats of violence.

Please join us as we do all we can to be voices for our brothers and sisters in Iraq.

Visit the Voices in the Wilderness website.

The Electronic Intifada (EI) []

EI, an online educational gateway to information about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, is produced by a small network of activists with a history of Internet and alternative media development.

EI undertakes research and compiles and publishes reference material, commentary and analysis, personal journals from the frontlines of the conflict, media news and analysis, and even satire.

EI offers information services for journalists and editors, activists and students of the media, researchers looking for reference material, and also provides automatically updating streaming content via our "wire service for websites," EI Wire.

Launched 23 February 2001, EI is independent of any political, factional, ethnic, or religious affiliation, and bases its view of the conflict on the foundations of universal human rights and international law. The Electronic Intifada condemns all attacks on civilians, regardless of the identity or beliefs of the perpetrators, yet encourages people to examine the structural roots and dynamics of violence in the conflict and the imbalance of power that perpetuates it.

The four founders of the Electronic Intifada project are Ali Abunimah, Arjan El Fassed, Laurie King-Irani, and Nigel Parry. All four have been active on the issue of Iraq and have collaborated with VitW to offer this a key information service, Electronic Iraq, as as the US prepares for war.

EI needs your support. For more information about financially supporting the work of the Electronic Intifada with U.S. tax-deductable donations, or to get in touch, see the Contact section of EI.

Visit the Electronic Intifada website.
