International Oil executives will bid to control Iraqi oil through a giant secret contract....
Dress in suits if possible...
Despite the Iraqi people rejecting the occupation-pushed Iraqi Oil Law, the Iraqi Ministry of Oil is steaming ahead with 20-year contracts for International Oil Companies to run Iraq's biggest producing fields.
With a combined total of 40 billion barrels, at no point in history has so great a quantity of known oil been offered in a single bid round to international oil companies, in any country.
The largest oil companies in the world will meet for a three day conference to work out contractual conditions for controlling Iraq's giant oil reserves for a generation.
Iraq is an occupation-made humanitarian disaster. 40% of the population relies on contaminated drinking water, over 3 million refugees are living desperate lives in Syria, Egypt, Jordan and Lebanon, the death toll from this ongoing war exceeds 1 million lives and Iraqi civilians continue to be bombed in their homes, marketplaces and streets by both occupation and terror group attacks.
Iraqis are saying NO to both the occupation and the oil privatisation it is pushing.
Come and show solidarity with the people of Iraq resisting oil grab and occupation and tell the likes of Shell, BP, Exxon No Blood for Oil.
