Below we refer you to the video of a speech delivered by Michael Pröbsting, the International Secretary of the RCIT, at the “International Legal Symposium on Banning the Baath Party Law and ablation and the crime of war and occupation in Iraq”, held in Beirut on 24 September 2016. Comrade Pröbsting was invited to address the conference in a speech delivered during the opening ceremony.
The conference was organized by forces associated with the Arab Organization for Human Rights (http://aohr.org.uk). It dealt with the political and legal means available to protest against new legislation being instituted by the pro-US and pro-Iranian government of Iraq with the aim of criminalizing the Baath party and all its supporters. The conference also discussed the consequences of the horrendous imperialist wars of aggression against the Iraq (in 1991 and 2003) and the subsequent occupation in the wake of the latter war.
