Fallujah

Fallujah, a play about the American siege and assault of the Iraqi city in 2004, is currently running at the Old Truman Brewery, on Brick Lane, London.

Fallujah represents an unforgettable part of Blair’s legacy, an action in which British forces played a key role.

According to the producers:

“The siege of Fallujah constitutes one of the most extensive human rights violations of recent times.

Breaching over 70 articles of the Geneva conventions, US forces bombed schools and hospitals, sniped at civilians (including children) holding white flags, cut off water and medical supplies, and instigated a chemical weapons assault, deploying napalm and white phosphorus, both of which are banned by the UN.”

“This play presents testimony from those at the heart of the siege: Iraqi civilians, clerics, US military and politicians, journalists, medics, aid workers, and the British Army.

None of this testimony has been heard before. Every word of this play is verbatim.”
