3. Review and discussion of other recent developments in Iraq.

4. There will be a peaceful rally in solidarity with the people of Iraq as they continue their protests against Nuri Al-Malikis government and their continued oppression and tyrannical acts against the citizens of Iraq.

The rally will take place on June 12th, 2011 from 4:00PM-6:00PM, at the Fountain area outside of Macys, on Bellevue Way NE, Bellevue Square.

June 7th, 2011 marks the end of the 1...00 days during which Al-Maliki had promised the Iraqi people he would make drastic changes in the government and improvements in the country. As we reach this date, not much has changed, and what had started as protests to demand better services and rights has now changed into demands to end the reign of Al-Malikis oppressive regime.

Iraqis have been holding and will continue to hold protests and sit-ins in many major cities around Iraq. The youth of Iraq have spoken, and they will not be silenced or scared by Al-Maliki and his goons.

Here are the basic demands of the Iraqi people:
1. End the reign of the Maliki regime
2. Complete withdrawal of all US troops and bases out of Iraq
3. Release the thousands of innocent prisoners

Here are some basic statistics of what has been happening in Iraq over the past 8 years:
One million killed. <---- this is now closer to 2 million
Six million displaced.
Five million orphans. <-- this is now closer to 6 million
One million widows.
1.5 million Disabled.
80% without proper sanitation.
70% without adequate access to clean water.
Two million Iraqis suffered arbitrary arrests by the US or by government forces.
400 secret detention centers.
Half a million (mainly women and children) living on rubbish dumps.
350 sites highly contaminated with Uranium due to the 20 years use of depleted Uranium weapons by US army. As a result, in areas such as Fallujah, Basrah and Nasriya, about 3 in 5 children are born with deformities.
Oil returns: over $1.5 Trillion (USD), yet Iraqis have no electricity, food, clean water, or basic services. Iraq is now the 2nd most corrupt nation in the world, with its government officials pocketing the countrys resources!

The people of Iraq are tired of the Maliki governments tactics to create sectarian and ethnic wars between Iraqis. Furthermore, the senseless bloodletting of Iraqis via terror supported acts of the Maliki government has to stop. Iraqis deserve the right to a dignified life! As human beings, we are asking the Obama administration to support the people of Iraq by condemning the acts of the Maliki dictatorship, as well as respecting the sovereignty of Iraq by pulling American troops completely out of Iraq.
