The association Peter Weiss Foundation for Arts and Politics based in Berlin and the international literature festival berlin have been sending out an appeal to commit 20th of March (the third anniversary of the beginning of the war in Iraq) as an Anniversary of the Political Lie. The purpose of the events and activities linked to this day should be to heighten awareness about contents and forms of political communication and to expose and criticize the political lie - academically, artistically or in form of caricatures. Since the beginning of the 21st century it is evident that the lie still belongs to the standard set of certain political movements, it has to be made clear at the same time, that the forces which oppose it do not yield. The first Anniversary of the Political Lie was hold on 20th of March 2006 in different cities worldwide and among other events with readings of Eliot Weinberger's "What I Heard about Iraq."
