Greg Muttitt, author of Fuel on the Fire: Oil and Politics in Occupied Iraq is touring the US on the occasion of the release of the U.S. edition of the book (it was published in the UK last year), conditions in Iraq today, the politics of oil and the role of the labor movement in post-occupation Iraq.
In a gripping account of the war that dominated U.S. foreign policy over the last decade, investigative journalist Greg Muttitt takes us behind the scenes and reveals for the first time the oil politics that played out duringthe occupation of Iraq.
[There are several references in the book about the role that USLAW played in organizing solidarity with the labor movement of Iraq.]

THERE'S SOMETHING WE CAN DO
TO DEFEND IRAQI WORKERS AND THEIR UNIONS!
Like workers all across North Africa, Iraqi workers are not about to silently accept the status quo. They are organizing and fighting back, and need our solidarity.
USLAW, Solidarity Center and the International Federation of Chemical, Energy, Mining and General Workers' Unions (ICEM) have joined with Labourstart, the international internet-based labor solidarity network, to launch an international campaign to demand that unjust discipline taken against worker activists and union leaders be reversed and that worker rights in Iraq be respected.
EXPRESS YOUR SOLIDARITY
WITH THESE IRAQI WORKERS
AND THEIR UNIONS
Then please share this action alert with others and urge them to take action in support of Iraqi workers.
