Free Abduljabbar!


List of signataries as of Oct 7, 2004

Abduljabbar Al-Kubaysi, president of the Iraqi Patriotic Alliance (IPA) and renown exponent of the popular resistance, was arrested on September 3 in a quarter of Baghdad controlled by the guerrilla. The house he stayed in was surrounded and stormed by US occupation forces employing helicopters, tanks and up to one hundred heavily armed soldiers.

Immediately after the Anglo-American aggression Abduljabbar decided to end thirty years of exile and returned to Iraq in order to engage in the struggle to chase away the occupants. For more than one years he has been spending – under very difficult conditions – all his energy to forge the unity of all popular forces fighting for independence and sovereignty of his country.

His passionate commitment for the freedom of Iraq, the love for his people afflicted by the war, the intransigent determination to chase out the imperialist invaders have earned him the ferocious hostility of both the Americans and their local satraps (first of all the so-called prime minister Allawi) who had been tracking him already for a while.

We express our strongest possible protest against the hijacking of Abduljabbar as we condemn the numerous disappearances of people opposing the occupation. Actually we are faced with an act of international piracy perpetrated by a despotic– nobody can forget Abu Ghraib – and illegitimate power for which democracy is valid only within the perimeter in which are barricaded all those accepting the bloody occupation.

Expressing our full solidarity to the family and comrades of Abduljabbar we demand his immediate release. In case this is not met we commit ourselves to send an authoritative international delegation to Baghdad emphasizing our demand.

Free Abduljabbar al-Kubaysi!
All occupation troops out of Iraq!
Self-determination and freedom for the Iraqi people!
