IRAQ: Iraqis to strike against US-drafted oil law

Submitted by Webmaster on Sun, 13/05/2007 - 14:00

Iraq's 28,000 oil workers are due to stop work on May 14 to protest against a draft oil law that would pave the way for Iraq's nationalised oil industry to be taken over by US and British oil corporations.

Eighteen anti-gold mine activists have been charged following a protest in central NSW, which concluded with a man allegedly ransacking the protesters' campsite while armed with a knife.

Anti-imperialist Camp Editor's note: We do not believe that there is a strong rivalry between the US and its European allies especially not on Iran. The difference between the US and the EU is the same as between the US neo-cons and US realists. It is a question of differences over how to keep imperialist power best in place.

The US has, directly after its occupation of Iraq, been building up several military bases close to the Iranian border.

The US has made repeated demands on the Iranian government to accommodate to US policies concerning the "new American order". Replacement of the regimes in Iraq, North Korea and Iran is, and has been, part of the Bush doctrine. Right now, as the US has failed in Iraq, its war-mongering against Iran is on the increase. The US has now dispatched two aircraft carriers to the Gulf of Persia and placed 50 warships just off the Iranian coast.

Encampment to Stop the War March 12-19+

Over the past few days, response to the call for an Encampment to Stop the War has been overwhelming. Students, antiwar activists, veterans, military families, community organizers, and trade unionists are coming from all over the U.S. to join the Encampment.

Soon, Congress will be asked to vote on President Bush' request for another $245 billion for the war in Iraq. This will be, in effect, a vote to continue the war. The current Congress was elected with a mandate to stop the war, and the antiwar movement must be in DC to hold them accountable for their actions.

One of the movements caught for all time - and turned into its own statement of cause:

-by Anti-imperialist Camp

1) Civil war in Iraq: we continue to support the resistance
2) Mideast Peace Resistance conference convened for March 24/25
3) Good news from Somalia: occupations force under attack
4) Lebanon: two governments soon?

1) Civil war in Iraq: we continue to support the resistance

We speak plain language: the Sunni-Shiite conflict in Iraq has grown in the course of the last six months into a sort of civil war.

It helps little, to simply argue against this position by pointing out that all this has been caused by the machinations of the USA and of Zionism - as many of our friends in the resistance like to do. Surely the USA contributed substantially to this split, without however carrying this on their banner from the outset. For the civil war does not indicate by any means the success of Washington, but its total fiasco, its complete loss of control of the situation.

1) With the Resistance, for a Just Peace in the Middle East International Conference

Chianciano Terme, Province of Siena, Tuscany, Italy
Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 March, 2007

The national assembly of the promoting forces, which met last Sunday in Florence, decided to finally convene the international conference: "Against the Occupation, with the Resistance - with a Just Peace in Iraq, Lebanon and Palestine".

After the struggle of 2005, when the Italian government impeded the conference on order of the US, after the success of the campaign for the visas which seem to be granted this time, and with the renewed interest of different sectors of the Arab Resistance movement time has come to hold this important international convention.
