STOP THE TRAFFICKING OF IRAQI CHILDREN !


J. has just arrived from Baghdad. We spent many hours talking. Too many stories...

But the most IMPORTANT one is this :

According to official figures for 2009 alone (and God only knows what the unofficial figures are) 270 Iraqi kids reported missing.

Missing because they have been KIDNAPPED FOR RANSOMS and parents can't afford to pay.

Missing because SOLD

Missing because TRAFFICKED to unknown destinations.

Missing because found DEAD, after their ORGANS HAVE BEEN REMOVED FROM THEIR BODIES.


IRAQ NEVER EXPERIENCED ANYTHING LIKE THIS BEFORE 2003.

STOP, STOP, STOP,

STOP THE TRAFFICKING OF IRAQI CHILDREN !
