Media workshop: "The News Embargo on Iraq"

The World Association for Christian Communication invites you to attend a two-day workshop on

The News Embargo on Iraq
April 5 and 6, 2001
New York City

Keynote Speakers
Denis J. Halliday and Hans von Sponeck

Both men recently resigned their positions as United Nations Humanitarian Coordinator for Iraq to protest what the sanctions are doing to the people of Iraq

also
Jutta Burghardt, Kathy Kelly, Mike Nahhal, and First hand reports from humanitarian workers who have been in Iraq,
including Mennonite Central Committee and Fellowship of Reconciliation And other distinguished guests.

Why has the world stood by unmoved by the humanitarian tragedy unfolding in Iraq as over a half a million children
have died because of a decaden of sanctions?

Why has the Western press been so reluctant to discuss this issue, creating, in effect, a kind of second embargo, a "news embargo" on the people of Iraq?

And what can be done by secular and religious journalists to break that embargo?
