Action against Windrush in London
From April 1st until April 6th, there will be
days of action against
Windrush in London.
Windrush are a company which organize the ‘Iraq Procurement Conferences’
at which the privatization of Iraq’s assets is facilitated.
Even if every troop left Iraq tomorrow, the occupation would continue as
a result of the economic ties which are currently being planned and
signed up to through privatization of Iraq’s services. As Naomi Klein
has written about, this process is illegal. She compared what is going
on to house sitters going to stay in someone’s house. Fine. But, they
sell off everything in the house to their friends! Windrush are
facilitating this process.
Ewa Jasiewicz explained, “Little is known about the illegal
privatization of Iraq and the economic agenda of the occupation which is
being fuelled and furthered through the daily massacres up and down
Iraq. We thought it was necessary to link the physical, obvious violence
being waged against the Iraqi people and the less visible economic
violence being wrecked on the lives, living standards and futures of
people in Iraq.”
I met with activists in London yesterday who are organizing the days of
action against Windrush, and they asked me to inform TP about these days
of actions so that they could be written into the diary of activists.
The plans are currently very loose but there will definitely be a demo
London on April 1st. (Friday)
On the weekend of the 2nd and 3rd, there may be a NVDA training and
teach-in though this is to be confirmed.
Over the next few days, 4th -6th, there will be demos, direct actions
