British Representative of the Iraqi Federation of Trade Unions (IFTU)
Wednesday 19th January, 7.30 pm Carrs Lane Church Centre, Birmingham.
The IFTU is the largest of the new independent trade union organisations that have emerged since the fall of Saddam`s dictatorship. In December 2003 its offices were ransacked by US troops and its members have also been murdered by the so-called “resistance“. Astonishingly, certain people within the British anti-war movement and on the British “left“ are now denouncing the IFTU as “collaborators“ and even“Quislings“!
Abdullah Muhsin will explain the IFTU`s policies, its attitude towards the occupation, the interim government and the elections. British trade unionists, Labour Party members, anti-war campaigners and anyone else who wants to know the truth about the IFTU, instead of the lies and slanders that have been spread, are welcome.
Committee in Support of Iraqi Trade Unions, 309 Mary Vale Road, B'ham B30 1PL. 0121 4513427. Birmingham TUC supported
