Iraq Cultural Heritage Act

From: Rebecca A. Rushfield <wittert>
Date: Friday, August 22, 2003
H.R. 2009, the Iraq Cultural Heritage Act, is now being debated in
the U.S. Congress. The bill, if passed, would prohibit the
importation of any improperly documented or undocumented
archaeological or cultural material removed from Iraq since 1990.
SAFE (Saving Antiquities for Everyone), a coalition of media,
academic, and museum professionals working together to increase
public awareness of the importance of preserving the cultural
heritage, is spearheading the drive to gain public support for this
legislation. Posters, bumper stickers, and further information can
be downloaded from the SAFE web site <URL:>.
