Obama's First Acts Of War

Within days of taking office Barack Obama sanctioned two missile attacks in Pakistan, which killed dozens of civilians.  Obama also announced the doubling of US troop numbers in Afghanistan to 60,000, making it clear that his war policies are no different from those of George Bush.

Obama's vice president Joe Biden says there will be an "uptick" in the military campaign in Afghanistan which makes more important than ever the protests now being planned in Britain for Obama's first visit here in April.

It is essential that the anti-war movement mobilises the widest opposition to the war in Afghanistan - which is unwinnable even if the invaders knew what "winning" would look like. Obama's intention is to escalate the war dramatically, with the inevitable slaughter of Afghan civilians, already being killed in their hundreds.

 

Petition to Eircom to Boycott Israeli firm Amdocs

IAWM Eircom Petition.jpg
Download Petition
Eircom are actively considering awarding a multi-million euro contact for a new computer billing system to a multinational consortium, which includes Israeli company Amdocs.

Amdocs is an Israeli based company, employing about 4000 people in Israel, and admits on its own web-site that most of its employees serve in the Israeli army.

For the consortuim that includes Amdocs to recieve this contract could be a major boost to the Israeli economy.

On the other hand, if Eircom refuse to give this contract to the consortium that includes Amdocs, it would be a powerful boost to the International campaign to boycott Israel because of its treatment of the Palestinian people.

We appeal to all those appalled by the recent Israeli massacare in Gaza and who wish to support the suffering people of Palestine, to sign this petition and circulate it widely for others to sign.
