The article reports that the Fellowship of Reconciliation recently launched a campaign called the "Iraq Photo Project" in Washington D.C. Inspired by the idea of a 50-something Minneapolis school-teacher named Kaia Svien to send a photographic response to the Iraq's Abu Ghraib prison scandal photos, the Nyack, New York City-based group went to peace groups throughout the U.S. to ask their members for help in the project. Over 400 photographs of individuals and families holding handmade signs have been collected thus far, usually expressing opposition to the Iraq War, 2003, or its conduct.
