A Sydney group of unionists and supporters has been formed to raise money for and build links with Iraqi unions.
In July last year a meeting initiated by Workers Liberty held at the Gaelic Club led to the formation of the Australia/Iraq Trade Union Solidarity group. Frustration with the refusal of most of the left to actively support the struggle of the workers’ movement in Iraq gave rise to this development.
A fund raiser in December 2004 raised several hundred dollars which has been distributed to union groups in Iraq in a non sectarian way. The next fund raiser is on 18 October, see the advert below. All funds are distributed through Union Aid Abroad - APHEDA
