Föreningen IrakSolidaritets insamling till krigets offer i Irak går till Studiecentrum för Mänskliga rättigheter och demokrati i Falluja, staden som komit att stå som symbol för motståndet mot USAs ockupation. Organisationen representerar ett flertal andra civila organisationer i staden. På engelska presenterade de sig så här i ett brev till FNs generalsekreterare Kofi Annan 14 januari 2005:
His Excellency Kofi Annan
The Secretary General of the United Nations
The people of Fallujah as well as the majority of the Iraqi people were touched by your warnings that the invasion of Al-Fallujah city will create a lot of dangerous consequences on the Iraqi political environment. We were of the hope that the United Nation will take clear measure to prevent invading and destruction of the city and displacing its inhabitants.
With our utter surprise to what was happening to our people in Fallujah, we has the honor to submit to you and through you the International Community two reports; the first one is stating major crimes that the U.S. forces had done between 7th November up to the end of December 2004. The second one is focusing on the humanitarian situation of the Fallujah refugees. We hope that the United Nations and the whole world be aware of the reality that war crimes and civilians massacres were perpetrated by the US forces in Fallujah and surroundings areas. The committing of these crimes became widely known, but what we would like from your Excellency is to record officially all these crimes. We also hope that your Excellency will take, in accordance to your authority and responsibilities as stated in the Charter and the International law, clear practical procedures to protect the right of the victims, and held the criminals accountable for their international crimes.
All what are mentioned in these two reports is honestly being stated and typical to eyewitnesses and affirmation of doctors, members of local and International humanitarian Organizations and even journalists who were embedded with the American forces who were being able to be in the city during the above mentioned period, in addition to evidences that we could authenticate.
We are sure that the International Organizations have a lot of evidences on these violations and crimes, but what astonished us the dubious silence. Therefore we demand through your Excellency all international organizations to disclose and release all reports they posses in order to fulfill its responsibilities as entrusted to by the international community. To be silent in regards of such crimes and grave violations will be seen as a participation in it, and also a misleading to the international community with regards what happened in Al-Fallujah and all over Iraq.
At the end, we request, your Excellency, to consider this letter and all its enclosures as an official document of the United Nations and to be distributed to all members of the Security Council. It is the simplest right for the city which being and still being slaughtered by the American invaders.
