Dr Salam Ismael’s report of US atrocities in Fallujah, Iraq, which Socialist Worker printed as our front page last week, has sent ripples around the world.
Tens of thousands of people logged onto Socialist Worker’s website at www.socialistworker.co.uk to read Fallujah: The Truth At Last.
Our website received 93,000 hits on the first day of going live as more and more people heard about Socialist Worker’s exclusive report of Dr Salam’s visit to Fallujah. Our hits only stopped when the web server crashed.
The report was picked up by the websites of Information Clearing House, one of the main anti-war networks in the US; Peace, Earth and Justice in Canada; and Green Left Weekly in Australia. Many other websites have also put the story up.
The story was on the front page of Liberazione, the daily newspaper of Rifondazione Comunista in Italy, last Saturday, which was sold on a massive anti-war demonstration in Rome
