The widespread military attack by the forces of ISIS (the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria) and its allies, aimed at toppling Nuri al-Maliki’s government, has resulted in a terrible toll of violence, instability and suffering within the country, and the international repercussions are extremely grave. Writer and campaigner Sami Ramadani, himself an active participant in campaigns against Saddam’s regime for many years, will explore this shocking situation with us. Sami opposed the 2003 US-led occupation of Iraq, speaks widely on Middle East issues, and is a Guardian contributor. He is a member of the Steering Committee of the Stop the War Coalition.
