The US military is making Iraqi children sick

By Falah Alwan, president of the FWCUI

August 27, 2011

We have a catastrophic situation in Haweeja, near Kirkuk.

There is an American munitions training centre in the province and the local people are suffering from living near the weapons testing. 412 children are suffering from radiation sickness. The FWCUI recently participated in a delegation organised by the Organisation for Women’s Freedom in Iraq (OWFI) to meet local residents and discuss the issues.

There are hundreds of people with illnesses, including cancer.

People cannot afford proper medical treatment; FWCUI and OWFI are demanding that the weapons testing stops, that the site is cleaned up and that people are given access to the medical treatment they need.
