Iraq free from foreign influence

For a democratic and united Iraq free from foreign influence.
For a democratic and united Iraq free from foreign influence.

- End the occupation
- Elections to form representative Iraqi government in a united Iraq
- No forced contracts, no privatisation, no bases without vote or referendum
- Compensation for the large destruction of people's lives, property and cultural heritage caused by US and British forces
- Iraq's debts written off not differed or rescheduled. Aid to help with reconstruction
- Iraqi resources for the Iraqi people

No excuses to delay hand over. For Iraq to be truly independent the clock is ticking and time is passing. Action as above will give Iraqis confidence and empower them to deal with any other issues.

For a democratic and united Iraq free from foreign influence.
