Protest next Monday for Hassan Jumaa if he ends up going to jail...


Hassan Jumaa, leader of the Iraqi Federation of Oil Unions, is being dragged from the courts in Iraq for 'Overstepping the boundaries of a public official' for his role in organising resistance to oil grab and occupation. For being an excellent trade unionist basically! He's facing 3 years in jail. The verdict on this process keeps getting delayed due to lack of evidence, because, there is no evidence.

Hassan Jumaa Awad is the leader of the Iraqi Federation of Oil Unions. He is facing up to 3 years in prison for 'overstepping the boundaries of a public official' for 'organising strikes and protests' against Oil privatisation, occupation and attacks on workers' terms and conditions in the oil sector. He is in court in Basra on Sunday May 5th. This protest is in solidarity with him and the thousands of Iraqi workers who are forbidden from organising, have had their unions ruled illegal and are fighting back under an ongoing Occupation. The Iraqi government still bans Unions in the Public Sector - Iraqi Unions want this lifted.
