On the Saturday night of Ideas for Freedom 2014, Workers' Liberty and comrades from the Worker-Communist Parties of Iraq and Kurdistan organised a fundraiser to support Iraqi workers', women's, and refugee organisations in their struggles against sectarianism.

In this speech, specially recorded for the event, Falah Alwan, the President of the Federation of Workers' Council and Unions in Iraq (FWCUI, one of Iraq's main labour federations) reports on the recent struggles of Iraqi workers, and explains why only the working class and organised labour can save Iraq from sectarian-religious reactionaries, and the economic and geo-political threats that it faces.
