Did you know that Iraq is still being bombed almost daily? That the United Nations sanctions are causing the deaths of some 250 people every day - the majority of them children under five? That doctors earn $2 a month - the price of four cans of Coca-Cola? Or that depleted uranium from the weapons used during the Gulf War is reputed to be causing a sevenfold rise in cancers? In this issue we journey through the country to meet the people of Iraq - doctors, academics, farmers, priests, engineers, artists and government ministers - and listen to the voices the world ignores.
