Hassan Juma'a Awad, President of the Iraq Federation of Oil Unions, will report on the continuing struggle of Iraqi workers for basic labor rights and to keep Iraq's oil resources from falling under the control of multinational oil companies. Iraq's public sector workers still do not have the legal rights to organize and bargain more than 10 years after the end of the dictatorship. Earlier this year Hassan faced criminal charges filed by the Oil Ministry in retaliation for worker strikes that took place in reaction to broken promises, unsafe working conditions, refusal to recognize the union and threatened privatization of Iraqi oil. He was accused of undermining the Iraqi Economy.
A spokesperson for CODEPINK will describe a class action lawsuit he has filed on behalf of Iraqi refugees against George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Colin Powell, Condoleeza Rice and Paul Wolfowitz for war crimes committed against the Iraqi people in the illegal invasion and occupation of Iraq.
