Iraqis will also speak at USLAW events in DC, NYC and Philadelphia
Among the international guests invited to attend the AFL-CIO national
convention in Pittsburgh, September 13-17, will be leaders of six
Iraqi labor federations. In addition to attending the convention,
the Iraqi union leaders will appear at events organized by USLAW and its
affiliates in Washington, DC, New York City, and Philadelphia.
One of their appearances at 1199 SEIU United Healthcare Workers East in NYC will also be simulcast by closed circuit television to 1199 facilities in Buffalo, Syracuse, Boston, Rochester, Buffalo, Baltimore and possibly elsewhere.
USLAW affiliates have introduced three antiwar resolutions for consideration at the convention on labor rights in Iraq, immediate withdrawal and Afghanistan.
Their tentative schedule is as follows:
September 8-12 Washington, DC
New York, NY
September 21-22 Philadelphia, PA
Sepember 23 Depart for Iraq
We have a very short timeline in which to organize these events.
USLAW needs your help to underwrite the
considerable expenses involved in providing transportation, hotels, meals,
interpreters, and publicity for these events.
