07-02-2005 07:15MULTITUDE: MONSTER OR MASTER
Often we suspect there is something ‘rotten’ in our global order and only an urgent adjustment can save us from calamity. But we are unable to articulate or convert our suspicions into logical concepts expressed in the context of past and current political and economic evolutions.
(a) are warmongerers;
(b) are complicit in the deaths of innocent people; and
(c) make things that kill children.
Since their business is the manufacture of weapons (see http://www.indymedia.org.uk/en/2005/02/304814.html), these would all seem to be at the very least fair comment, and arguably simple fact.

Stop the Serious Organised Crime and Police Bill from going
The Serious Organised Crime and Police Bill is going to be debated in Parliament next Monday 7th January from 2.30pm.
THIS LEGISLATION WILL REMOVE BRIAN HAW'S PEACE PROTEST FROM PARLIAMENT SQUARE AND COULD STOP ALL PROTEST WITHIN 1KM OF PARLIAMENT. IT IS A SEVERE CONTRAVENTION OF THE HUMAN RIGHTS ACT AND A FUNDAMENTAL ATTACK ON DEMOCRACTIC PRINCIPLES.
DEMONSTRATION ON MONDAY 7 FEBRUARY 2-8pm IN PARLIAMENT SQUARE -
At this stage MPs can make amendments and the Bill will probably be voted through to its next stage in the House of Lords.

Building trade unions in Occupied Iraq
With Hassan Juma'a from the Basra Oil Union
7pm, Tuesday 8th February,
Room 3B, University of London Union, Malet Street, London WC1.
Hassan Juma'a is the General Secretary of the Southern Oil Company Union and President of the General Union of Oil Sector Workers in Basra, the federation to which the former is affiliated. Both were created after the invasion and are politically independent, both of the regime and of political parties in Iraq. SOCU members waged a successful stuggle to raise the level of the wage imposed on them by the occupation authorities. They are currently engaged in a fight against oil privatisation and stopped oil production in August in protest against the seige of Najaf. Don't miss this opportunity to hear from a trade unionist who has experienced the daily reality of the occupation.
Hassan is in Britain as a guest of Iraq Occupation Focus. The normal IOF organising meeting will take place immediately after Hassan has spoken and questions have been taken. Please feel free to leave after this, or to stay and help us organise against the increasingly brutal occupation of Iraq.
For more information of the Southern Oil Company Union, please visit our >>website<<
Hassan Juma'a will be in Britain until the 19th February. He will be meeting trade unionists and anti-war activists. His speaking engagements include the annual conferences of Labour Against the War and the Stop the War Coalition, as well as a TUC Iraq Solidarity Conference.
