JUNE 30th THE DAY AMERICA HANDS IRAQ OVER TO
AMERICA

END THE OCCUPATION OF IRAQ: CONFRONT WAR
PROFITEERS

CALL TO ACTION!

June 30th: The Day America hands Iraq over to America

During the past year and a half, millions of people across the
world have demonstrated their opposition to the U.S.-led invasion
of Iraq, yet tanks and troops continue to devastate the country.
Meanwhile, many corporations partner with the Coalition
Provisional Authority to make millions from the "reconstruction"
of the country, and to ensure that Iraqi "liberation" translates into
privatized, open markets and economic subservience. While
registering our moral outrage at these crimes is important, it is
time to take our responsibility for ending the occupation more
seriously. On June 30th, the day the U.S.-led coalition claims
they will transfer power to the Iraqis, we call for a day of action to
illuminate the emptiness of their promise and to press our
demand that they get their troops and their dirty contracts out of
Iraq.

Demonstrations and actions are being planned in Toronto, for
which we need to organize for maximum attendance. We call on
people in cities across North America to organize actions of their
own. It is time to bring anti-occupation demands to those
corporations benefiting from the colonization of Iraq, and to keep
up pressure on all governments complicit in the killing of more
than 10,000 Iraqis since March of 2003. We have come together
to fight capitalist globalization before. With the horror of this
globalization so blatant in Iraq, we need to target and expose
those responsible (whose offices, we would do well to remember,
can be found in cities across Canada and the U.S.).

Our movements must build on themselves, resisting with the sort
of commitment that will persist year after year. The stakes in this
struggle could hardly be higher, and this is no time for
complacency. We want to encourage creative forms of resistance
to the war on Iraq, and use a range of tactics in working to end
the occupation. We stand in defence of human rights and justice,
and in solidarity with the people of Iraq. On June 30th, let's show
our determination to escalate our opposition to this empire.

ACTIONS ON JUNE 30TH

Interhealth is a private, for profit, health export corporation that
has applied to the US for contracts in Iraq to set up private

the majority of Iraqis suffer. The Ontario and BC provincial
governments are shareholders in InterHealth.

(CCC)

151 Yonge Street(South of Richmond)

The CCC (a publicly-owned Crown Corporation set-up to
facilitate international trade), provides a specialized contracting
service for Canadian companies exporting to the US Department
of Defense.

Since 1946, it has helped Canadian arms and weapons
manufacturers do business with the US military.

celebratory response to the terms of the American occupation,
and international privatized reconstruction of Iraq

Autonomy & Solidarity is an exploratory network and political
space for socialists, anarchists and anti-capitalists who believe
that revolutionary transformation will come from workers and
oppressed people self-organizing from below and not from the top
down organizing of any state, party or union bureaucracy. If
