Some Common Concerns
The book, Some Common Concerns, by
PLATFORM et al, published in October 2002, helps the reader to imagine
what the proposed pipelines system would be like if it were built.
The book recounts the 13 years of planning, the political positioning
of the three host countries (and crucially of the USA and Britain),
the strategic manoeuvring of BP and its partner companies. The book
examines the experience of BP's three biggest existing pipeline
systems, in the North Sea, in Alaska and in Colombia - and asks
whether the similar patterns of environmental damage, human rights
issues, economic injustices can be expected from the AGT pipelines
By creating a picture of the proposed pipelines system, and the
complex network of organisations backing it (led by BP), the book
aims to help members of civil society and campaigners actively influence
decisions about the project.
