Dear all,
I forward you the ICSSI newsletter with the announcement of the Iraqi 
Social Forum 2015, please spread the news!
This year unfortunately ICSSI cannot cover travel or accommodation costs 
of internationals so I ask all of you to look for funding through your 
organizations, if you wish to travel to Baghdad. And register online as 
soon as possible, since you will need to apply for the visa at the Iraqi 
Ambassy in your country... not easy visa at the airport this time, we do 
not have an endorsement of an Iraqi institution.
But I'm sure we can put together an important international delegation, 
come on, registrations are open!!!

Victory of anti-corruption protests in Iraq. Statement by the Iraqi 
Social Forum

*The Iraqi Council of Representatives unanimously voted this week on a 
paper of reforms to combat corruption and government waste, that was 
approved by the Council of Ministers in an extraordinary session held 
last Sunday. This is a result of the public pressure produced in the 
past two weeks by massive social protests that took place in many Iraqi 
provinces. >> <http://www.iraqicivilsociety.org/archives/4510>


Videos on demonstrations in Baghdad

*Watch these exceptional videos on the demonstrations in Tahrir Sqare, 
Baghdad. People are singing, police smile at activists and distribute 
water to them, women feel confident enough to be in the crowd. Another 
Iraqi is possible, indeed! >> 


After ISIS: Perspectives of Displaced Communities from Ninewa on Return 
to Iraq's Disputed Territory

*Recently, military developments and international involvement have 
resulted in ISIS retreating from some areas previously under its control 
in Iraq. IDP communities struggle to return while the potential for 
renewed conflict remains alarmingly high. A report comissioned by PAX in 
order to prepare for conflict sensitive peace building programs. >> 


Alternatives to War: Eight Things the US Should do Regarding Daesh

*When it comes to dealing with US policy towards ISIS, there are two 
critical understandings. One requires rejecting George W. Bush's 
post-9/11 claim that the only choice was "we either go to war, or we let 
'em get away with it." That was not the only choice for dealing with al 
Qaeda then, it is not the only choice for dealing with ISIS now. War or 
nothing is never the only choice. >>
