"BACK TO IRAQ: State of the Sanctions 2002," by Portland (OR)'s Dan Handelman, who spent 8 days in Iraq with a delegation from Voices in the Wilderness (VitW) which delivered medicine and toys to hospitals, families and children. Three Americans and four British members of VitW witnessed conditions in Iraq after 11-1/2 years of the sanctions. The 18-minute video of Iraq includes interviews with Iraqi doctors and citizens, UN Humanitarian Coordinator Tun Myat, and Columbia University professor Richard Garfield. It also shows images from within Iraqi hospitals, tours of water and sewage treatment plants, and two civilian sites bombed during the 1991 "Gulf War." It is estimated that hundreds of thousands of Iraqis have died as a direct result of the bombing and sanctions.

["Back to Iraq" is preceded by a brief 4-min. segment on a recent anti-war march in Chicago.]

This video is not for sale by Labor Beat, but VHS copies of the show are available for a suggested donation of $9 plus $4 postage (please allow a few days for duplication and handling).
