THE MISFORTUNE TO BE BORN IRAQI
IN A WORLD WHERE EVERYBODY
WANTS TO BECOME AMERICAN...

For the second time within twelve years, Iraqi people are in the target of 
planet's most murderous military machine. After the Gulf War 1 and the 
hundreds of thousands of casualties among the civilians, NATO's murderers in 
uniform are getting prepared to complete the crime. Under the pretext of , 
but having as real interest to put a hand on the area's important resources 
of petrol and find a way out of the economic crisis ( huge flow and 
consumption of already accumulated capital ), NATO is ready to embark on a 
new strike against Iraq.

Huge USA and British military forces are already deployed in the area,
while Greece's contribution to the war consists of two war vessels in the 
NATO fleet. Australia has already expressed its willingness to participate 
and everybody awaits the official beginning of the war; official, because 
the war against Iraqi people has never ceased. The carpet - bombing against 
military and non military targets carries on, causing collateral damage, and 
the embargo imposed on Iraq ( following a unanimous agreement on the behalf 
of the United Nations ) has lead to the death of hundreds of thousands of 
people - mostly children - due to a lack of basic medical care and food. 
Many European countries, urged by their economic - basically petrolic - 
interests in the area, express their discontent to the Anglo-American 
decision and try to react with all sorts of legalistic tricks such as 
recourses to the United Nations ( which is nothing more than an instrument 
of the global leaders that legalizes wars world-wide by its own right ). The 
Arab countries as well as Turkey - which for the time being keep a stand by 
position - are negotiating their participation, playing their own 
geopolitical game, being afraid of the possible rise of a pro- Kurdish 
regime in the area.

The Greek state was involved in these atrocities, exactly in the way it
did during the previous wars against Iraq, Yugoslavia and Afghanistan.
Notwithstanding the effort of the Greek government to persuade us for the 
opposite, it greatly contributes to the slaughter of civilians, as it 
provides NATO with its most important aeronautical base in the
Mediterranean, that of Souda. The latter, owing to its geographical
position, constitutes the vital station of supply and refueling for NATO
forces before they reach the theater of operations. The headquarters of
NATO in Souda, is also a source of fatal diseases for the population of
that area, where a boom of different types of cancers and leukemia is
recorded.

While Western countries, under the leadership of the United States, are
heading towards the establishment of their globalized domination, they
repress their subjects, sometimes by means of force and other times by
means of fake expectations about a prosperous future, sometimes by means
of war and others by means of social peace, knowing that in that way they 
will maintain their empire. Those who consume today the , they will
experience - if needed in the future - the made by themselves. (?)
In a world where profits are considered to be more important than human
beings and petrol more valuable than children's lives, it is misfortune to 
be born Iraqi and not American.

NATO army along with the Greek one are getting prepared for the new war,
the new massacre, the repetition of history. The Souda Base equips and
preserves the crowds of murders, spreads cancer and radioactivity in
Western Crete.

SAY NO TO THE WAR IN IRAQ
SILENCE MEANS COMPLICITY
DOWN WITH ALL ARMIES
2DAYS BLOCKADE OF SOUDA BASE
SATURDAY 15TH OF MARCH, CHANIA'S AGORA SQUARE AT 12PM
