Letter from the people in Fallujah calling for help to end the bombardment and prevent the threatened assault.

/ massacres / impending /

"To plunder, to slaughter, to steal, these things they misname empire; and where they make a wasteland, they call it peace." - Tacitus

While the occupation forces and the local quislings, prepare for the final onslaught against Fallujah, the people of the city sent this open letter to the Secretary General of the UN. They are pleading for a UN intervention, an intervention that I'm crushed to say will never happen, and even if it does, the slaughter has been pre-decided by people who don't give two fucks about the United Nations or the World.

The few remaining residents are scared and waiting, while the stormtroopers are preparing for the kill.

A symbolic gesture: maybe you'd all like to take a look and sign the World Wide Petition Against the Escalation in Iraq, endorsed by the World Tribunal on Iraq. I know... I know... how's that going to help? but look at this way: you'll be on record opposing these coming atrocities...
