Campaign Against Sanctions
* Join us on our campaign against sanctions. Sanctions hurt civilians, deprive them of much needed medical supplies and medicines, and deny the State of spare parts and material essential for machinery and infrastructure.
Over 500,000 children died as a result of 10 years of sactions imposed on Iraq.
The US administration arbitrarily and unilaterally imposes sanctions.
Sanctions are a war crime. Stop the sanctions on Syria.
