The World Peace Council (WPC) expresses its anger and deep disapproval about the execution of Saddam Hussein, an act of political revenge against the Iraqi people aiming in the justification of the Anglo-American invasion and occupation of Iraq.

Saddam Hussein committed many crimes and political errors and should have been tried only by the Iraqi people. The US-paid and orchestrated trial of Baghdad was not only far away from being fair, but covered finally the complicity of the USA and its European allies towards Saddam Hussein’s reign.

The WPC expresses furthermore its serious concerns about the plans of the occupying forces to divide Iraq into parts, serving the imperialist interests in the region.

The WPC demands the complete withdrawal of all forces of occupation and reiterates its support to the people of Iraq in their legitimate right to resist occupation.
