Forward from a friend -- Sandeep -------- Original Message -------- Subject: from Marinella - Italy - URGENT Date: Thu, 16 Mar 2000 16:57:01 +0100 From: "Un Ponte per" <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: <email@example.com> Dear Sandeep, due to some problems with the computer I cannot use Internet. Please could you circulate (of course only if you agree with) the idea of sending to the Presidents and Ministers of Oil of some Opec members (Venezuela, Iran, Libya, Algeria at least) an appeal oin order they raise the issue of the embargo during the next OPec conference, netx week? As Italian campaign we sent the following letter to those countries, through their embassies in Italy or directly.... I shall write to you again about your contacts in India. THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP Marinella Rome (Italy), 15-3-2000 The Italian Campaign to stop the sanctions on Iraq asks the oil exporting countries to raise the issue of the sanctions during the next Opec Conference. We are sure that you know about the sufferings of Iraqi people. Almost 10 years of sanctions caused the death of more than one million innocent people. Iraq cannot actually export more oil because of the lack of spare parts and other components for its oil industry. Apparently, only few countries in the world are strongly in favour of the sanctions: Unitede States, United Kingdom and some Gulf Kingdom. It is time to isolate them politically! Therefore we ask the other oil exporting countries to raise the issue in this crucial moment when the importing countries ask them to produce more oil in order to cut prices. We are a coalition of associations, movements, local municipalities acting towards Italy and other countries in order to remove the sanctions on Iraq, a tool of genocide. We thank you for your attention -- ----------------------------------------------------------------------- This is a discussion list run by the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq For removal from list, email firstname.lastname@example.org Full details of CASI's various lists can be found on the CASI website: http://welcome.to/casi
