request for information on legal action

Dear Friends,

Legal action is being planned against the Canadian government. 
Specifically, the group will seek "an injunction against the Canadian
Government's continued compliance with the present method of implementing
sanctions.  Such legal action would not be intended to try to bring
criminal charges against Canadian, or other national or international
political figures, or to attempt to negate sanctions against the supply to
of militarily strategic materials to the Government of Iraq, but rather to
address any complicity on the part of Canada in the imposition of any and
all restrictions on the supply of food and humanitarian goods to the
people of iraq as constituting involvement in an overt act of genocide." 

Such action would be initiated by and through a non profit humanitarian
organization to be incorporated in Canada under the name "Save the Iraq
Children Peace Action Committee."

Here's the request:  Hugh Duxbury, of this association, wants to find out
if there have been *ANY* other legal action against governments (or the
like)  on the issue of the sanctions against Iraq.  In the UK? Elsewhere
in Europe? Anywhere?

 If you know of any information, please contact Hugh at: 

        TEL: 403.246.4153
        FAX: 403.246.4266

Thank you,
-Rania Masri
