    Baghdad By Adrian Blomfield in Baghdad (Filed: 04/08/2004) Saddam Hussein would be grumbling in his prison cell if he knew. Al-Mutanabi Street, the book-lined alley whose spirit he tried for decades to crush, is again filled with customers, from communists to clerics, who would once have faced jail for reading some of the material on offer. One man browsing the stalls was Sami al-Mutairy, a one-eyed poet and playwright who wrote The Tribes of Fear, a thinly-veiled attack on Saddam's attempts to sow ethnic disunity. He was imprisoned and tortured by the Ba'ath party's secret police. "They used a ring...

    Flashpoint city shuns Islamists in council elections Anbar, Iraq Press, January 28, 2004 – Political factions with secular and democratic leanings emerged the winners in the first local elections held here since the downfall of Saddam Hussein nearly 10 months ago. Some 18 groups contested the three seats dedicated to the city’s political parties. The city council consists of 40 members, most of them were nominated by the US occupation troops and city elders. The elections for the three seats, in which the majority of the legible voters of Ramadi’s 440,000 people took part, were free and direct. The success...

    BAGHDAD, Iraq - A bomb planted in a meeting room exploded after a gathering of the Iraqi Communist Party, killing two men in an apparent attack on supporters of the U.S.-backed government, officials said Friday. The attack in Baghdad on Thursday appeared aimed at undermining the Communists, who have become the most organized political group in the country since the collapse of Saddam Hussein's Baath party. The Communists have one representative on the U.S.-backed, 25-member Iraqi Governing Council. The bombing came as U.S. forces arrested a father and son suspected of launching a mortar and rocket barrage that killed two...

    ON the morning of April 10, a day after US tanks stormed the Iraqi capital and looters began to ravage government buildings, a group of young men laid claim to a military housing command in downtown Baghdad. After ousting the looters, the newcomers unfurled and planted a red flag with a gold hammer and sickle on the building. The banner, unseen in Iraq in many decades, would have gotten them shot only hours earlier by Saddam Hussein's security forces. "Even during Saddam's most savage repression we had an underground presence in Baghdad and other cities, mobilising the masses and fighting...

Inquire within.

    Reds under the ruinsBy Paul Belden BAGHDAD - He still calls himself Abu Ayad, but that's only because old habits die hard. "It's my secret name," he explains with a smile, wiping his professorial spectacles against the sleeve of his neat, nerdy, button-down yellow shirt. This secret-named, hardened political fighter is, it turns out, a shy man at heart. Shy - but not embarrassed. The name and the reason behind it, may seem to be holdovers of a different era, but they were once the dead-serious necessities of political activism in this land where even the suspicion of such an...

    BAGHDAD (Reuters) - It would not be Washington's first choice, but the long-banned Iraq Communist Party on Sunday won the race to publish the first newspaper in Baghdad since the fall of Saddam Hussein. The eight-page "People's Path" was handed out for free, snapped up eagerly by passers-by hungry for any kind of news after the U.S. invasion eradicated state-run media. "Collapse of a Dictator" read the headline under the hammer and sickle on the front page, followed by an article railing against the abuses of Saddam's "bloody, terrorist reign." "With the dictatorship's collapse, all the wishes of the vast...
