Once again, we are called to support Cyprus. Two months
ago, our efforts were successful in deterring primarily American Airlines
as well as other US carriers from initiating direct flights from the US to
the occupied territories. This time, another set of companies has been
enticed to begin business in the occupied territories.
It is of the highest priority that you send a message to Themis-Media@hec.greece.org .
In this list are the ten companies which plan to visit the occupied
part of Cyprus on February 17, 2005 . Try to sensitize these companies
with your message that they are going to violate international law and
set themselves up for liabilities in exchange for investments of
poor or dubious values, by acquiescing to enticements that are not in
their business interests. These companies are being used politically.
In fact, US investment in the occupied territories will only add money to
the coffers of illegal banks, casinos, crime lords with ties to al-Qaeda,
gun-running and slave trade of minors which international law enforcement
and intelligence concede exists in the occupied territories.

Your voices need to be heard this week.
