At a time when the US and UK are contemplating further imperial adventures in Iran, "Not One More Death" lays bare the act of blatant state terrorism that is the invasion and occupation of Iraq, and reveals the extraordinary tapestry of lies, distortions and gross media manipulation that underpin it. Here, prominent artists, musicians, playwrights, scientists and writers look at the reality behind the rhetoric: how public opinion is wilfully ignored and "democracy" used as a figleaf for the furthering of colonial ambitions in the Middle East. "Not One More Death" calls on the US and UK to withdraw troops from Iraq now, and for Bush and Blair to be brought to account for this illegal war.
