In Human Rights, Middle East, National Security

For nearly four years, Hussein Moanes, a former spokesman for Iraq’s Hezbollah Brigrades, was imprisoned by U.S. forces for having engaged in armed resistance to the U.S. occupation of Iraq.

After his liberation, he co-founded and became leader of a new political party, Huquq (the Rights Movement). Moanes is now a member of Iraq’s Parliament, along with five other deputies from Huquq.

Moanes and his party continue to resist the interminable U.S. occupation of his country, but this time by political means. In retaliation, the U.S. government recently sanctioned Moanes.

On April 1, 2024, in Baghdad’s “green zone”, I spoke with Moanes about the U.S. government’s relentless efforts to perpetuate its control of Iraq’s resources, economy and government.
