Monday, 9th March 1998 US Secretary of State Madeleine Albright is today engaging in bilateral talks with Britain's Foreign Secretary Robin Cook. All those who respect international law and value peace are called upon to make it clear that Albright is not welcome here. Albright first made her mark upon world public opinion by remarking that the death of more than half a million children in Iraq is "worth it" to control the region. She has, along with other US and British leaders, systematically manipulated, controlled, directed, misinformed, concealed from and restricted press and media coverage of the genocide being perpetrated in Iraq. She has, along with other US and British leaders, systematically misrepresented the situation regarding the United Nations and international law, and has fostered the false claim that it would be 'legal' under existing UN Security Council resolutions for the US and Britain to attack Iraq any time they feel this would be in their 'national interests'. This is precisely the kind of behaviour which the entire structure of post-war international law was designed to prevent. It amounts to making a statement of criminal intent to breach the international peace. Robin Cook must immediately cease to aid and abet this criminal standpoint. The US and British governments must withdraw their troops from the Gulf and lift the sanctions blockade, or face the severest consequences in the tribunal of international public opinion. Picket the Albright-Cook bilateral talks from 7.00 a.m. Monday 9th March, outside 1, Carlton Gardens, between The Mall and Pall Mall. Green Park tube. Picket the 'Contact Group' of Foreign Ministers from 9.00 a.m. at Lancaster House, Queen's Walk entrance, on Green Park.
