For Immediate Release

March 18, 2003

Danny Muller 773.784.8065 / 917.217.6809
Tom Walsh 773.784.8065 / 773.419.0837

Dozens of American citizens and other internationals commit to remain in Iraq, despite the threat of a US attack. They continue to support and help Iraqi citizens who, through no fault of their own, face imminent attack in an illegal US-led war.

War will likely involve bombarding 24 million Iraqi citizens and the infrastructure they depend on for basic necessities. Twelve million Iraqis are under the age of 15 years old. Standing with the Iraqi people during this dangerous time, are numerous US veterans, people of faith, independent media, medical and humanitarian groups. They have consistently, in conjunction with international efforts, highlighted nonviolent alternatives to economic and military warfare, and to governments that do not represent their citizens.

Americans in Iraq with Voices in the Wilderness' Iraq Peace Team are not human shields. Many have been furthering humanitarian efforts in Iraq since 1990. Their actions reflect a deep-seated commitment to the possibilities for nonviolent resolution, including an end to economic sanctions and inhumane US foreign policy that endangers the security and well being of Americans and Iraqis worldwide.

An attack on Iraqi civilians is an attack on the principles and responsibilities of the United States. Delegates stand as representatives of another America, grounded in the tradition of active nonviolent resistance.

Before war is pursued without question or honest dialogue, we invite elected officials to contact those Americans, who they have sworn to represent, currently on the ground in Iraq. Below find the Iraq Peace Team members and their contact numbers.
