Four years and counting... by Chris

I took part today in a small protest in Parliament Square to commemorate the fourth anniversary of the invasion of Iraq. A group of about a dozen people organised by Voices in the Wilderness and London Catholic Worker planted 186 crosses to represent the estimated 186,000 people who have been killed in the war.

Each cross bore the name of one person killed and how they died. As I put each of my crosses the brief details were searing. 'Hussain, four years old, killed in Fallujah'. And for each, brief awful story there were 999 others. God forgive us.

Indymedia have more more photos and a report
