Detailed article on the postponement of the University of Maine's "Doing Busines
Detailed article on the postponement of the University of Maine's "Doing Business in Iraq" conference which was scheduled for November 13 in Scarborough, and was put off until next spring. University of Maine and University of Southern Maine faculty and students, as well as members of the state's peace groups, had protested this meeting and the university's sponsorship of it for what they saw as corporate exploitation of Iraq. Conference organizers, promoting what they view as legitimate corporate investment, say they were not influenced by the planned demonstrations, and that the event was rescheduled because two speakers couldn't attend. With a focus on comments by Daniel Innis, dean of the College of Business, Public Policy, and Health at the University of Maine in Orono; Dennis Sokol, founder of the U.S.-Iraq Business Alliance; and Peace Action Maine.
