Visiting Iraqi Trade Unionists Call for Immediate Withdrawal of US Troops

The Iraqis arrived in Portland this morning, and spoke at a noon luncehon. These brave organizers have an important story to tell, and I encourage everyone to come tonight to hear what they have to say about union organizing, the US occupation, privatization, and their requests for solidarity. It's very powerful stuff, and this is probably the only opportunity to hear directly from Iraqi union organizers.

When asked about the US occupation, they were very clear--they think that the US occupation should end immediately.
