Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook and Denis Halliday September 18, 2000

This from the wayback: I spoke with Denis Halliday, the former UN Assistant Secretary-General and resigned Head of the UN Oil for Food Programme in Iraq about the plight of a people surviving on the wrong side of an embargo. Now, Halliday is aboard the MV Rachel Corrie as it steams through the Mediterranean towards Gaza, not heeding the threats of Israel's bloody-handed navy it's fitting he's back to try again to end another remorseless siege.

Monday, September 18th, '00
5:00:00 2:00 Welcome to Gorilla Radio, etc. For more than ten years, the United Nations Security Council has enforced an embargo against Iraq. In that time, by the U.N.'s own estimates, more than a million Iraqi citizens have died as a result.
Iraq is a defeated country; its infrastructure is destroyed, the
economy in ruins, and its oil revenues strictly controlled. Yet,
the 'victorious' alliance of western nations, including Canada,
refuse to take their collective boot from the necks of the people.
On today's show, Former UN Assistant Secretary-General
and resigned Head of the UN Oil for Food Programme in Iraq,
Denis Halliday on the continuation of a policy he's described as genocidal…
Denis Halliday and the U.N.'s genocide by decree.
