Jodie Evans serves as an international observer at the World Tribunal on Iraq that opened on June 23 in Istanbul, Turkey. You haven't heard of it? As usual, the mainstream media is ignoring it. But it's an historic gathering of international witnesses, experts and jurors including former Assistant to the UN Secretary General Denis Halliday, award-winning author Arundhati Roy and Iraqi scholar Souad Naji Al-Azzawi. Co-coordinator Richard Falk, a UNESCO peace prize holder and professor of International Law, called the Tribunal an _expression of "moral globalization," with concerned citizens "acting on the belief that no state and no leader is above the law when it comes to matters of war and peace."
