The UN “oil-for-food” program
The same is true of the AWB inquiry. Its aim has not been to establish the truth about Australian wheat sales to Iraq, but rather to try to bury the scandal. Australian Prime Minister John Howard chose a trusted acquaintance, Terence Cole, to head the inquiry and ensured its terms of reference were narrowly confined to examining the AWB’s wrongdoing, thus excluding his government’s role in supervising the contracts.

Weekly Independent Poster of Social Centre activitiesTotal Oil AGM Demonstration - Friday 12th at 12.30pm
The regime in Burma recently launched a new military offensive against civilians from the Karen ethnic minority in Burma. More than 11,000 people have been forced from their homes and are hiding in the jungle with no food or medical supplies. Civilians, including children, have been shot, tortured, mutilated and even beheaded. Total is the largest and last significant European investor in Burma. Total Oil’s Yadana gas project is believed to earn the regime between $200m to $450m a year. In addition to the huge revenues Total’s project provides the regime, the companies presence in Burma is influencing French, European Union and British foreign policy on Burma, as France vetoes effective EU sanctions in order to protect Total. Demonstration at Total's Head Office, 33 Cavendish Square, London W1G OPW. Nearest tube is Oxford Circus.

11-05-2006 21:44

There is an up side to this revelation that the US Government is plugged into all of our communications. Because now that we KNOW this, the government cannot stage another fake terror attack to kick off more wars without the American people calling attention to the NSA phone monitoring being a total and complete failure! Remember this when the people who never admit wrongdoing when the proof is right in front of them claim that they had "inadequate resources" to stop an attack.

Still waiting on the UK whistleblower ...
