Members of Voices in the Wilderness, a human rights group, have entered their third week of a hunger fast across the street from the U.S. Mission to the United Nations. They are demanding the United Nations lift the U.S.-led sanctions on Iraq. Yesterday, members of the group met with Richard Butler, Executive Chair of UNSCOM, the UN Special Commission on Iraq. According to UN law, sanctions will not be lifted until UNSCOM determines that Iraq has eliminated its weapons of mass destruction.

Guest:

  • Kathy Kelly, Director and Founder of Voices in the Wilderness, a human rights group that delivers aide to Iraq in violation of U.S. law.
