LFIQ stresses solidarity in Guardian

Janice MacDonald writes that “those who are against the war but show minimal interest in Iraqi human rights are no friends of the Iraqi people”. We back Iraqi unions and others who oppose occupation, neo-liberal economics and being saddled with Saddam’s debts. But the so-called resistance deliberately murders such people for daring to support the UN election process. Nozad Ismail, the president of the Iraqi Federation of Trade Unions, in Kirkuk, has twice escaped assassination and receives daily threats. Solidarity with Nozad and others is the most urgent priority for friends of the Iraqi people.
