Urgent Appeal To Arab and International Trade Unions

Urgent Appeal
To Arab and International Trade Unions 
Solidarity with the Workers of Textile Factory in Hilla
the Victims of the Cowardly Terrorist Bombings

Terrorist anti-people gangs have committed one of the ugliest crimes against the Iraqi workers when a series of cowardly bombings targeted the textile factory in Hilla on Monday, 10 May 2010 while the workers were leaving the factory at the end of the working day. More than 40 workers, including

women, were killed and dozens wounded as a result of this barbaric attack.

We urge you to raise your voices to denounce this heinous crime, strongly condemn the terrorist killers and express solidarity with the workers of the textile factory in Hilla and the families of innocent victims.

We also urge you to call upon the Iraqi authorities to take urgent measures to provide all the necessary protection for the workers and to provide compensation to the families of the martyrs and wounded.

We look forward to your solidarity with the Iraqi workers and your support for their struggle for a free, dignified and secure life in a democratic, fully sovereign and prosperous Iraq.
