Clandestine Insurgent Rebel Clown Army (CIRCA) Anti-Official Communique #3 2nd
July 2004 Re: the so-called handover of Iraq, June 2004.
And photos from today's invasion and occupation of Leeds.
This week, Iraq is being handed back to the Iraqi people (ha ha ha ha!).
CIRCA begs to differ…. This so called HAND-OVER of power has amused us greatly.
We have rolled around on the floor in fits of laughter at such an absurdity.
We at CIRCA have sent out our very own inspection teams and listened with
concern to the Clown's Intelligence Committee.
We are suspicious that all is not as it seems in Iraq. Our own dossier (not
sexed up, but slightly fruity), reveals that:

· Out of $18 billion allotted (what a lot of money!) by the US Congress for
reconstruction, only $3 billion has been spent.

· Our clown friend Naomi Klein in the Guardian (26/6/04) told us that out of
every £ spent by those rebuilding Iraq, 25p is spent protecting them from
attack, 30p spent on insuring them against death, and 20p is lost to
corruption. We at CIRCA are alarmed to find out that only 25p in every £ is
left for rebuilding Iraq - most of which the poorest never see. Most of the
money ends up in the pockets of Western Multi Nationals

· The Iraq Interim Government is prohibited from reversing any of the laws
passed by the USA since it has occupied Iraq.

· We read in the Sunday Telegraph (4/1/04) that the US is creating a new secret
police force for Iraq which 'the Pentagon and CIA have told the White House
will allow America to maintain control over the direction of the country'

CIRCA feels it has no option but to establish the Clown Provisional Authority in
Leeds. Our action is a last resort. We have no quarrel with the people of
Leeds. Our purpose is to ridicule, mock, tease and undermine the rich and
powerful war profiteers.

We are committed to the re-construction of a world of justice, joy and
jelly-babies and call on fellow motley rebels, clandestine clowns and bumbling
buffoons to join us to fulfil our promise to the people.

The Clandestine Insurgent Rebel Clown Army (CIRCA) announces its occupation of
Leeds and the establishment of the Clown Provisional Authority. The occupation
is in response to the failure of the local authorities to rid Leeds of the
presence of forces believed to be connected to war, militarism and state

CIRCA will establish a Clown Provisional Authority that will bring foolishness,
love and custard pies to the people of Leeds.

By the end of today CIRCA will have visited:

The war profiteers - It has come to our attention that Chubb, a firm based in
Leeds has recently been bought by US owned United Technologies Corp (UTC),
makers of military equipment like Sikorsky helicopters, which have been used in
bombing raids on Iraq. We intend to convert such companies, who make money out
of the war, into bicycle, feather duster and doughnut factories.

The dictatorship of fools - It has come to our attention that a particularly
career minded Government cabinet minister, by the name of Mr Benn, works in our
midst. By the end of the day, CIRCA resolves to offer said politician the
position of Minister for International Clowning Development. Any further signs
of careerism or profiteering from government representatives will result in
custard pie interrogation and severe tickling.

The occupying forces - It has come to our attention that the occupying forces
are recruiting in Leeds. Potential recruits have shown great skill and courage
in their desire to end tyrannical rule in Iraq. CIRCA believes there is great
promise in these young recruits. By the end of today we resolve to recruit them
to the Clandestine Insurgent Rebel Clown Army and offer training in mocking,
teasing and ridiculing the rich and powerful warmongers, rather than bombing,
plundering and invading the people of Iraq.
