Many people are familiar with Israel’s use of Caterpillar armoured bulldozers in Palestine and the US military’s use of militarised bulldozers in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Bosnia. Now news has emerged that Caterpillar machines are responsible for the destruction of over 300,000 indigenous homes in Zimbabwe, during Operation Murambatsvina, (literally “clean out the trash” in Shona), in which impoverished supporters of the opposition Movement for Democratic Change were driven out of urban settlements into strenuously guarded rural camps.

22-08-2005 22:16

A building empty for many years has been occupied. The neighbours constantly fed up with the council inaction, a mess in the garden, drug abusers round the back of the property, windows smashed.

*Iraq - Economic Occupation on Trial - Support Needed*

22-08-2005 19:19

**Call for Urgent Support**

In less than a month, four British activists will face trial for
challenging a British company involved in facilitating the Economic
Occupation of Iraq. The chaining of Iraq’s economy to irreversible
economic conditions through Orders passed by the Coalition Provisional
Authority, accompanied by Structural Adjustment Programs rammed through
using Iraq’s odious regime incurred debt, has lead to the steady
imposition of free market lead structures upon Iraq without the consent
of the Iraqi people. This process is barely known, and barely reported
on but has longterm implications for the people of Iraq, their futures
and the future of US empire in the Middle East.
