IFTU statement of solidarity with victims of the London bombings and the workers of London

The Iraqi Federation of Trade Unions (IFTU) London office strongly
condemns the terrorist attacks in London that took place yesterday (7
July, 2005) against innocent defenceless working people going about
their daily routine.

We mourn the loss of life and pray for a speedy recovery of the injured.
These are unprovoked attacks, which lack any justification whatsoever.
We Iraqis know very well the sorrow Londoners are going through at the
moment and feel their pain as Iraq today battles against extremism for
democracy and human rights in a federal and united Iraq.
The perpetrators of these vile acts of barbarism must be brought to
justice and receive the deserved punishment.
We salute the brave, calm and tireless humanitarian response of
workers in the transport, emergency services and media who have
demonstrated the instinctive and universal duty of love and care to
their fellow Londoners, that is an example to trade unionists
Finally our sympathy with families and friends who lost loved ones.
