Lacuna special series on the Iraq investigations

With injustice and atrocities occurring daily, it is easy to overlook the importance of individual lives, especially ones as far-removed as Iraq over a decade ago. Like Ahmed Jabbar Kareem Ali, the Iraqi teenager who drowned after being forced into a river by British soldiers in 2003. But in 2016 Britain, political pressure to dismiss all individual claims quickly is now a high priority. The dominant message is that these are spurious claims promoted by unscrupulous human rights lawyers.

Watch out for each day’s different take on the Iraq allegations on Lacuna magazine and Open Democracy, and help us disseminate this story by sharing it across your networks and through Facebook (Lacuna - A Writing Wrongs Project) and Twitter (@Lacunamagazine).
