Yes. That Was What It Was All About.

June 3, 2007

The Iraqi Parliament will soon vote on a US-backed law that could hand too much oil revenue and control to foreign corporations.

A Sunni, Shia and Kurd Parliamentarian are planning to stand together and present this petition to the Iraqi Parliament. They want us to help them show that the world supports Iraq’s right to its own oil and its own future. Sign below to help us reach 100,000 signatures before they present it.

We support the Iraqi people’s sovereign right to the country’s oil. We reject the pressure campaign led by the Bush Administration and multi-national oil companies to force Iraqis to adopt this draft Oil Law, which risks conceding extraordinary rights over revenue and production to foreign corporations.

Iraq’s oil wealth should be shared fairly among all Iraqis to help them rebuild their country. We affirm the right and responsibility of Iraq’s national parliament to take the final decisions on this matter, and call on the US President and Congress to respect Iraq’s sovereignty. We stand in solidarity with Iraqi leaders who oppose this unwarranted foreign interference.

You can sign the petition HERE.
