Iraqi Interpreters – October 9th: Bring your own MP

The campaign keeps rolling. If you’ve already written to your MP,
write or email him or her again and this time invite them to a speaker
meeting at Parliament on the second day of the new session, Tuesday 9th

Via Dan:

If you haven’t already written to your MP, please do so: outline
what’s happening and why we should be concerned, ask them to contact
the relevant Ministries (particularly the Home Office but also the
Ministry of Defence and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office) and also
invite them to the meeting. Talking points for both letters are here. Any blogger who has participated in this campaign is invited as is any blogreader who successfully invites their MP. Just email Dan Hardie at and an invitation will be heading your way.

Stress to MPs that mainstream print and TV journalists will be
present: that is the kind of thing that tends, for some reason, to
attract them. And stress that this is the first blog-based campaign in
the UK. This is how politics is going, and they need to see what it
looks like.

Dan spoke to an ex-Royal Engineer yesterday who told him of an Iraqi employee murdered since this campaign began.
Now that the British contingent has withdrawn to Basra Airport, we can
probably expect more power-drilling, cigarette-burning and shooting of
Iraqi employees. These people are dying right now. The pressure needs
to be maintained on MPs and the various ministries involved.

Hope to see you on October 9.
