European Unioon to send Demarche to (r)

Subject: Re: European Unioon to send Demarche to SLORC

If this is true, this is very disappointing on the part of the french, as 
they adopt european parlimentary tactics here but when exploiting the

european consortium. Total is as guilty as slorc in Burma, not the 
European Union! What utter hypocrisy. We are now preparing to contact 
the French responsables. Dawn Star
