The Alliance for a Corporate-Free UN has raised questions about the partnerships between the United Nations and transnational corporations under the Global Compact since it was launched in the summer of 2000. Alliance members feel that the Global Compact Office has skirted the questions raised by numerous human rights and environmental abuses by companies which have signed onto the Compact.

Dear Messrs. Doyle and Kell,
CorpWatch has forwarded to us your February 14 letter, addressed to members of our Alliance in reply to our January 29 letter, to the Secretary General. We have read the letter and found that it does not relate to the letter we sent, but seems addressed to CorpWatch alone.
We still await a substantive reply to our letter to the Secretary General.
Thank you for your attention.
