The Baghdad headquarters of the Iraq Freedom Congress were raided by U.S. troops last week, according to IFC member Amjad Al-Jawhary.

The IFC, a nonviolent secular resistance movement, condemned the attacks Sept. 7-8, and pledged to continue its peaceful struggle to end the occupation.

The raid came after a series of civil activities against the occupation. IFC leaders said U.S. forces were outraged by the anti-occupation banners and posters on the walls showing international solidarity with Iraqi people. They reacted violently and broke all internal doors, destroyed furniture, and confiscated most of the office property, IFC leaders said Friday.

"These kinds of acts reveal the true face of the occupation and its hypocrisy about the freedom and democracy they brought to the Iraqi people," said IFC in a written statement.

The IFC said the U.S. occupation and the U.S.-backed government of Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki have "failed miserably to bring security and basic civil services to Iraq." It also blames the U.S. occupation for unleashing the widespread violence perpetrated by sectarian militias and for "turning a blind eye to the daily killing of civilians in broad daylight."
