U.S.-led economic sanctions against Iraq have killed over 500,000 children and the current administration continues to threaten a full-scale bombardment of this already devastated country. We have marched in the streets, posted signs on our homes, and prayed privately and publicly for an end to this threat of war and our nation's continued military build-up.
Now, following the example of Unreasonable Women Baring Witness, we are using our bodies themselves to "bare witness" to our desire for peace and justice for all members of the human family. This photograph is our response to our nation's continuing war against the people of Iraq.
