The Coalition for Nuclear Disarmament and Peace (CNDP) [INDIA]

Press Release on April 1, 2003.


The unjust, illegal and savage war on Iraq is being waged not to disarm it
of weapons of mass destruction (WMDs), or 'liberate' its people, but to
promote America's hegemonic interests and create a global empire. WMD are
unacceptable, no matter who has them -- including the invading governments
of the US and Britain with their huge arsenals, which they refuse to disarm.

The invaders are killing and maiming civilians and soldiers defending their
homeland, after years of unjust sanctions that have killed nearly two
million civilians. The Coalition for Nuclear Disarmament and Peace (CNDP)
joins all peace and justice-loving peoples in condemning the US and its
allies and demanding they immediately withdraw. They must fully indemnify
Iraq's people for the destruction inflicted upon them and pay for
humanitarian aid through an independent agency. They must not be allowed to
reap the fruits of aggression through participation in post-war

The CNDP deplores the Indian government's ambivalent stand and demands it
unequivocally condemn the US aggression. New Delhi lost it global moral
stature after the 1998 nuclear tests and is trying to use the war to
promote tensions in our region.
