Voices of Iraqi Workers
with
Hashmeya Muhsin Hussein, Pres. Electrical Utility Workers Union
and
Faleh Abood Umara, General Sec. of the Federation of Oil Unions

Two leaders of Iraq's labor movement address the impact the U.S.
occupation has had on the labor movement and the daily lives of working
people in Iraq. They'll speak about the reconstruction and will explain why
the labor movement is opposed to the proposed hydrocarbon law favored
by the Bush administration, the Democratic Congress and oil corporations
which would put foreign oil corporations in effective control of 2/3 of Iraq's
undeveloped oil reserves. They will also describe the likely consequences
if the occupation abruptly ends and prospects for a stable, democratic,
non-sectarian future for Iraq.
