The BRussells Tribunal

The BRussells Tribunal was founded around the time of the invasion of Iraq in March 2003, largely supported by the cultural scene in Brussels (P.A.R.T.S., Rosas, Beursschouwburg, Les Halles). In April 2004, a people’s court was held against the Project for the New American Century (PNAC) and its role in the illegal invasion of Iraq. This hearing constituted the opening session of the World Tribunal on Iraq. After this endeavour, the BRussells Tribunal decided to become a permanent organization and has evolved into an international network including many Iraqi academics, intellectuals and activists.

The International Anti-Occupation Network

The International Anti-occupation Network (IAON) is a coalition of groups that stand in solidarity with the Iraqi people and for Iraqi sovereignty and against the US-led occupation of Iraq. It was established in April 2006 at the Madrid International Seminar on the Assassination of Iraqi Academics and Health Professionals.

Projects initiated

International Initiative to Prosecute US Genocide in Iraq

The International Initiative to Prosecute US Genocide in Iraq was founded in November 2007 with the aim of bringing the charge of genocide against the United States, its proxies and allies, in a court of universal jurisdiction. In 2009, we filed a legal case against four US presidents and four UK prime ministers one day before the Spanish Senate voted to radically circumscribe the law of universal jurisdiction in Spain. We remain committed to working towards the prosecution of high US and UK officials for the unspeakable crimes detailed in the case we submitted.

Arab Liberation

Arab Liberation aims to be a focus for minute-by-minute information on the Arab uprisings and revolutions of 2011+. In orientation, we support the Arab uprisings for dignity and democracy and see in them a defeat for Western colonialism and the imposition of globalization by force. The new Arab world will shift significantly the balance of the global order of imperialism in favour of progressive forces and the people.

Centre for Global Geostrategic Analysis

The Centre for Global Geostrategic Analysis aims to present and develop analysis grounded in the implications both locally and globally of the uprising of the Arab people, and founded in the global struggle for dignity, freedom, popular sovereignty, independence, justice, respect for human beings and nature, while ultimately pointing the way to an alternative world to that imposed by imperial powers.

The Atrocity Museum

The Atrocity Museum is a repository for thoughts on the violence that lies below the everyday mundane. It is also a method: the attempt to map out some outlines of the societies in which we find ourselves, intolerable as they often are.
