Audio: “Building Solidarity with Iraq’s Civil Resistance” at the 2009 Left Forum
The National Organization for the Iraqi Freedom Struggles (on the web at NO-IFS) sponsored the panel “Building Solidarity with Iraq’s Civil Resistance” at this year’s Left Forum.
Houzan Mahmoud, International Representative of the Organization of Women’s Freedom in Iraq (OWFI), had been scheduled to speak but was unable to make the trip to NYC. We hope she will come later in the year. The talks at the panel were, in this order: Bill Weinberg on various civil society organizations and the need to solidarize with them; Anne Jaclard on the work OWFI has done and its significance for freedom movements; and Michael Zweig on the recent conference he attended in Iraq at which a number of labor unions formed a coalition.
