What the caterpillar
calls the end of the world,
the rest of the world
calls a butterfly!
Lao-Tsé

Behind the iron wall, outside the razor wire, far from the temple, there is a garden from which you can see the blue sky of freedom.

Coinciding with the uprisings across the Arab world there has been brutal suppression of demonstrations in Iraq that resist the occupation by the US and its allies.

The first of a series of demonstrations in towns and cities from north to south occurred on 25 February 2011.

On that day 22 people including a boy of only 12 years were murdered by mercenaries paid by Blackwater, by US occupation forces and by Maliki’s army.

The Iraqi Association has provided a list of the names of these people. Following these murders, the Iraqi intifada began with calls to have more demonstrations on the ‘Day of the Martyrs’, Friday, 4 Mar 2011. A curfew has been imposed by the Maliki government. Demonstrations were held throughout the country and a minister was attacked in the Green zone by angry demonstrators.

The Website titled ‘Your Pencils’ posed the following question:

We ask if Nuri al-Maliki’s Dawa party feels any guilt for killing these innocent young lives?

ألأنهم خرجوا يطالبون بحقوق الشعب المهدورة؟

Because they came out demanding the rights of the waste?

ألأنهم رفعوا صوتهم بالاعتراض على ملفات الفساد والسرقات؟

Because they raised their voices to object to proof of corruption and theft? ألأنهم صدقوا أنهم يعيشون في

(ديمقراطية) وأن التظاهر السلمي هو حق مشروع..؟!!

Because they believe they have democratic rights, and that peaceful protest is a legitimate right
..?!! ومن أعطى قواك الأمنية الحق في انتقاء من يزهقون ارواحهم ظلما وعدوانا؟

Why sacrifice the lives of these people for the sake of energy security for the US and her allies?
