[OPIRG-EVENTS] Talisman and oil in Sudan

+++pls circulate, pls come!+++

Corporate Social (ir)Responsibility: The Case of Talisman Energy

Talisman Energy, Canada's largest oil company, just sold its share of oil
franchise in Sudan. As Talisman profited, the oil revenues supported the
unelected, brutal government of Sudan as it waged war against the people of
Southern Sudan and the Sudan People's Liberation Army (SPLA) and other armed
resistance forces. A Canadian government report, the Harker report, noted
that Talisman's airstrips were being used by the government of Sudan, which
regularly launches
bombing raids on villages, part of its policy of "clearing" the oil fields
so that it and its corporate partners could have easy access to the oil.

Mel Middleton, Executive Director, Freedom Quest International, will examine
Talisman's role in the war and the devastation of the people of Sudan.
Discussion, including what's next, will follow according to interest.

December 4, 10:00
Fauteux Hall, room 351
