A Sad Postscript
Another Trade union leader and his wife have been murdered by terrorists in Iraq. . This is a sad postscript to the last item I posted where I ended just prior to my summary with a reference to the General Federation of Iraqi Workers (GFIW) who have issued this statement. Moaaid Hamid was Vice-President of the Federation. In 2003 he helped set up the Iraqi Federation of Trade Unions(IFTU) which is now part of GFIW. I am myself an honorary member of the IFTU, so to me Moaaid was very much a comrade. In the memory of Moaaid and his wife we need to work to ensure that we do what we can to aid the success of the Iraqi Labour Movement.
