Labour Friends of Iraq model motion on Military Action and Falluja

This CLP is alarmed that military action against the terrorists in Falluja and other towns will result in large scale loss of civilian life.
The aerial bombardment of a built-up civilian area will drive ordinary Iraqis towards the men of violence.
We implore the Labour government to exercise all its influence to prevent these casualties and to pursue all political and humanitarian channels to resolve the crisis.
We urge the Labour Government to do all it can to support the UN process that envisages a democratic sovereign Iraq and to support all democratic forces within Iraq, including the newly emerging trade union movement.
This CLP recognises that a flourishing democracy and civil society in Iraq will powerfully undermine the terrorists.
