Liberia: May 7, 2001



  Today, new UN sanctions on Liberia begin. The main one prohibits any diamond exports from Liberia. This measure will stop the trade of illegal diamonds via Liberia. Rebels in neighboring countries have long  supported themselves via an illegal diamond trade. Liberia is protesting the sanctions, but there has been a long history of evidence that president Charles Taylor is involved in the illegal trade. Other sanctions limit the international travel of senior government officials.

Thanksgiving is quickly approaching. Because of falling ad revenues and the owners of the site wanting you to have a good experience, this poor pet bird (Drake) may end up as the turkey for the publisher’s Thanksgiving meal.

What can you do to help save the bird? There are three possibilities:

  1. Make sure you spread the word about us. Two ways to do that are to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
  2. Subscribe to our daily newsletter. We’ll send the news to your email box, and you don’t have to come to the site unless you want to read columns or see photos.
  3. You can contribute to the health of StrategyPage. A contribution is not a donation that you can deduct at tax time, but a form of crowdfunding. We store none of your information when you contribute..

Drake appreciates any help you can give him.
