Gordon Brown on civil and social rights

LFIQ is chiefly concerned with providing solidarity to Iraqi democrats and progressives but we are very concerned to increase support for measures that increase social justice, in its own right, and to avert and marginalise the use of terrorism and sectarian fundamentalism. Gordon Brown recently visited Africa and recalled Martin Luther King’s “recognition that the achievements of civil rights could not be real without the achievement of economic and social rights.” He added his support for “One moral universe where progress is not just one individual or even just one or two countries doing well but all of us advancing together and where by the strong helping the weak it makes us all stronger.” We apply such principles to our work on Iraq.
