Os escribo porque un grupo de activistas europeos (Holanda, Suiza, Noruega, Inglaterra) está realizando una IMPORTANTE campaña contra las empresas que están realizando exploraciones petrolíferas en el Sáhara Occidental. Las empresas son inglesas y toda la campaña está en inglés.
Una de las coordinadoras de la campaña es Liesbeth den Haan, del Comité de Apoyo Holandés al Sáhara y dice que es MUY URGENTE que haya asociaciones o entidades que den su apoyo a la campaña. (LA RESPUESTA DEBE ENVIARSE ANTES DE ESTA MEDIANOCHE)
Os pedimos que le escribais a su dirección para poder añadir vuestro nombre a la carta que se va a entregar MAÑANA a la empresa que está haciendo exploraciones petrolíferas en el Sáhara Occidental.
HAY QUE ENVIAR UN MENSAJE APOYANDO ESTA INICIATIVA A : firstname.lastname@example.org
Un saludo a todos,

Subject : [task-force-sahara] VERY URGENT APPEAL : update on oil campaign and drafts letters + draft press release
> Dear all,
> Please take the time to read this message. It contains information on the

> Fugro that will be sent already on TUESDAY 29 JUNE.
> Please note also that all texts attached are DRAFTS and still have to be
> finalized. Do not publish them.
> Yesterday, the answer arrived finally of Fugro on our letter of 7th of June.
> The president and chief executive officer Mr Kramer stated that the survey
> executed by one of its subsidiaries (without mentioning its name) had been
> completed and that there is no UN embargo on Western Sahara. This means that
> Fugro suggested that for that reason carrying-out of survey activities in
> Western Sahara was not illegal.
> In fact, we already suspected that the survey was to be completed to the end
> of June, and thought that Fugro only wanted to stall the time until the
> survey would have been completed.
> And we found out in the meantime that the subsidiaries Svitzer and Robertson
> (both UK based) are the ones being involved.
> The UK, Norwegian and Dutch committees consulted each other and decided to
> to go ahead with a slightly adapted campaign plan, and indeed with great
> THE CAMPAIGN
> The outlines of the plan stayed as described by Erik Hagen (Norwegian
> Committee) :
> Letter to Fugro N.V. (Board and Supervisoruy Board) – see attachment for the
> draft letter) ;
> Copies of letter to Fugro to Robertson Research International and to
> Svitzer, accompanied by letters of the Western Sahara Campaign and signed by

> would be marvellous to have signatures of other NGOs, but the time is
> limited (one day !). We can try and have more ngo’s and

> that way, a real internation coalition for the protection of the natural
> resources in Western Sahara can be build.
