Subject: Re: [Iraq Social Forum] Thank you

Dear all,

the ISF has been a wonderful experience, at a personal and at a collective level! Ismaeel and I are now spending a week writing articles and giving speeches in Italian events on the ISF, so we have little time left for emails :-)
I send you the picture of some people who gathered in Pisa (Italy) today to watch pictures and short videos about the ISF. Overall we were about 25 people, and everybody was amazed by our achievements in Baghdad.
Ismaeel was in Perugia yesterday for other events on ISF, and is leaving for Sicily tomorrow morning. The Extended Iraqi Social Forum continues! If you are organizing or have organized events in your countries please send a few lines of report and a picture to Toon <>, who's doing the report of the Extended ISF.

Thanks a lot to all of you and huge congratulations to the Iraqis for making a dream come true!!!

Dear friends

Hope this e mail finds you well. It was our pleasure, and privilege that you came to Baghdad to witness the launch of the first ISF activities. Your presence and solidarity with Iraqi peoples’ issues was an additional motivation to the activists of the ISF preparatory committee, secretarial, and volunteers who worked for months to organize this huge event that was able, with our limited resources to attract more than 170 activities that dealt with different issues of the Iraqi society, and the registration of 3000 participant.

Yes, our Iraqi society is heading towards gathering the efforts into one solid unity, as a result of networking that took place during the forum between activists and organizations, to turn the page of scattered, unorganized civil activity, thus we feel like we are on the right track towards “Anther Iraq IS Possible”.

We also thank our international friends, who couldn’t come to Baghdad for one reason or the other, who participated in solidarity activities with Iraqi people through a verity of activities that deeply enhanced the activists’ enthusiasm, and introduced the people of Iraq’s issues to the international public opinion.

Once again, we thank you for the solidarity that you generously offered the Iraqi people by coming to Baghdad, or through the activities of the Extended Iraqi Social Forum. We wish that we have been successful in reflecting a good image of Iraq and its’ people.

You all are welcome anytime to your Iraq
