Kucinich News Conference Will Reveal Consequences of Iraqi Oil Privatization in Supplemental Bill

Who: Congressman Dennis Kucinich
Ms. Antonia Juhasz, Institute for Policy Studies
Ms. Denice Lombard, U.S. Labor Against the War
When: Thursday, May 24, 2007
Time: 12 p.m.
Where: Cannon Terrace, Corner of New Jersey Avenue and Independence Avenue

What: Congressman Kucinich, along with Iraqi oil expert Antonia Juhasz and National Tour Coordinator for the Voices of Iraqi Workers Solidarity Tour Denice Lombard will be discussing the implications of Congress insisting on benchmarks in the Iraq supplemental that include passage of the Iraqi "hydrocarbon act," which forces the Iraqis to privatize their oil.

Read Antonia Juhasz New York Times Op Ed of March 13, 2007 exposing the details of the Iraq Oil Law and the oil benchmark, "Whose Oil Is It, Anyway?"

Following the news conference, there will be a Congressional briefing to expose the crucial issue of Congress passing a measure that pressures Iraq to pass a "Hydrocarbon Act." This act would allow multinational oil corporations -- many based in the United States -- to exercise control over Iraqi oil resources.

The Iraqi oil privatization briefing will be from 2 p.m.-3 p.m., in room 402 Cannon.
