Miracle in the Marshes of Iraq

A tear-jerking documentary about the marshes of Iraq and one man’s crusade to undo decades of injustice. Highly recommend all to watch.

The four-part documentary is available on YouTube.

    Dear All,
    I have just come across this blog which I congratulate the cooperative who incepted and created it. As there are is no category dealing with the blog itself I am having to copy all categories to hopefully reach the blog owner(s). So sorry in advance for choosing to blast the blog. Here is my message:
    Since the general concept seems to be Iraqi Brits discussing common shared topics, one of which is Iraq. I am surprised to see the emphasis is on culture and politics and even religion rather than building, construction and economy, all of which is themes related to the country’s survival. How about adding economy or business to the list of themes?
    If you take up my suggestion then promise you a grass root perspective from Ground Zero by someone with no political agenda or ties and who has returned to attempt rebuilding anything in Iraq 35 years of life in the UK. I work in the private sector therefore my observations on happenings in Iraq are more realistic than public sector employee. Readers who may be looking for ways to contribute to Iraq (as opposed to just talking) may well find ideas of projects my company is trying to carry out in Iraq as suitable practical avenues for contributing to Iraq’s progress.
    Aziz
