"Hands Off Iraqi Oil" Teach-In

  • Greg Muttitt from PLATFORM (author of Crude Designs: The rip-off of Iraq's oil wealth)
  • Ewa Jasiewicz from Naftana (UK Support Committee for the General Union of Oil Employees)

  • "A new law that would transfer control of most of Iraq's oil production from the public sector to multinational oil companies through long-termcontracts of up to 20 or 30 years, now looks set to be rubber-stamped by Iraq's Parliament in the next few months. Whilst the US and British governments, the IMF and the big multinational oil companies have all been active in shaping the new law - which will tie the hands of future governments, depriving them of democratic control over the country's main natural resource - the Iraqi public and Iraqi civil society have been excluded from the process. Join us on 24th March to:

  • find out more about the new law, the companies involved, and the US and UK Governments' roles in this smash and grab law; and
  • make plans to take action to stop British companies from joining the race to carve up Iraq's oil wealth.

  • For more information about the campaign visit"
