Iraq Journal: The Iraq Peace Team Demonstrates Outside An Electrical Plant Bombed During the Gulf War

February 12, 2003


We go to Iraq for the latest installment of Iraq Journal with Democracy Now! correspondent Jeremy Scahill and filmmaker Jacquie Soohen. Scahill reports on an Iraq peace team demonstration at an electrical plant 30 miles outside Baghdad. It was one of the electrical facilities bombed during the Gulf War. The bombing of electrical plants led to massive power shortages across the country, which in turn led to the shut down of water and sewage treatment facilities and a massive humanitarian crisis.

The Iraqi people are worried the same thing is about to happen again.
