Members of No Blood For Oil! an anti authoritarian coalition against the planned invasion
of Iraq, have occupied the Security Council chamber at the United
Nations. The activists have made the following demands:

* Immediate lifting of economic sanctions against Iraq.
* No U.N. permission at any time for an invasion of Iraq.
* Explicit U.N. condemnation of the new U.S. policy of anticipatory
self-defense.

The activists have pledged to continue to occupy the Security Council
chamber until these demands are agreed to.

Economic sanctions are directly responsible for the deaths of hundreds
of thousands of Iraqis over the past decade and have in no way lessened
the threat of war. The U.N. must stop sanctioning this inhuman policy.

The U.S. is applying tremendous pressure on Security Council members to
give their blessing to a criminal war of aggression against Iraq. No
Blood For Oil! demands that the U.N. refuse to make the nations of the
world a party to this illegal, immoral war.

Recently, President Bush announced a new defense posture that
effectively asserts the U.S.'s right to attack any country at any time
under the "principle" of anticipatory self-defense. This policy flies in
the face of international law and all peoples' right to
self-determination. The U.N. must explicitly reject and condemn it.

No Blood For Oil! are a coalition of activists pledged to resist the
U.S. push for war through direct action. We call on all Americans to do
everything in their power to stop aggression against Iraq.
