The People's Flag In Baghdad

See here for a photo of the May Day Demonstration in Baghdad.

Meanwhile In Basra ....

And here, Hashimiya Hussein the President of the Electricity and Energy Workers Union and the first woman Trade Union Leader in Iraq's history leads their May Day March - with a special call for women to join their Trade Union Movement. I have met Hashimiya both at the TUC and at Arbil in Iraqi Kurdistan. She told me that she would be a year old when I myself arrived in Basra to do my National Service.
