Subject: Good news
I have good news to announce.
The Biannual Congress of the Icelandic Green-Left Party just closed. About 400 delegates attended. The Congress passed a resolution on 9/11. It was passed by the General Assembly of the Congress by acclamation, without opposing votes. I urge you to disseminate it to Green and Leftist organisations and parties wherever possible, as well as within the 911 movement.
Here is a rush translation of the resolution.
Resolution on the Events of 9/11
The Congress of the Green-Left Party held in Reykjavik, 21-23 October 2005 calls on the Goverment of Iceland to produce the evidence on alleged responsibility of persons in Afghanistan for the terrorist acts of 11 September 2001, on which the Government based its support of the U.S. aggression and occupation of that country. The Congress urges the Parliamentary faction to act on this matter.
The Congress highlights that four years have passed since the commission of the terrorist acts of 11 September 2001, acts which
shattered the world. These terrorists acts were crimes against humanity which were used by the governments of certain countries to
initiate wars, increased surveillance of the population, to justify torture and greatly increase military expenditures.
The Congress wishes to convey its solidarity with the struggle of victims’ families for the truth and supports the demand for an
independent, international inquiry on these terrorist acts.
Adopted on 23 October 2005 by acclamation.
