Iraq Freedom Congress Holds Its First Convention

category international | anti-war / imperialism | other press author Tuesday October 30, 2007 15:32author by pat c Report this post to the editors

The Iraq Freedom Congress held its First Convention last week in Kirkurk. The IFC opposes both the Occupation of Iraq and the the sectarian Militias. The IFC slogans are "No Shiite ... No Sunni… ours is humanitarian identity" and "No to the occupation ... No to the sectarian gangs"

On October 21, 2007 the first Convention of Iraq Freedom Congress was held in the city of Kirkuk, attended by many elected delegates who came from different provinces and cities of Iraq (Basra, Nasiriyah, Shatrah, Diwaniyah, Kut, Hashemite, Suwayrah, Numaniyah, Kifl, Hillah, Alexandria, Baghdad, Samarra, Tikrit, Bejee, Mosul and Kirkuk). The delegates were able to reach the conference hall despite the serious danger they could have faced on their way and the collapse of the security situation, such as booby-trapped cars, bombs and sectarian gangs.

IFC Convention.

Samir Adil (IFC President) said "we must succeed and win and the fate of millions outside this room are tied to the outcome of this convention". Statements were read from the Worker Communist Party of Iraq and the Worker-communist Party of Iran – Hekmatist who praised the determination of IFC to rid Iraq of the tragic conditions was read to the meeting.

Followed by a letter from the Chairman of the Workers Against the War and Occupation Front; Abdullah Al-Maliki was read, who congratulated the convention on this occasion. Following was the letter of Saman Karim chairman of the Political Bureau of the Worker Communist Party Iraq who announced the party's support to IFC struggle for liberation. And then was the message of Subhi Al-Badri; chairman of the Anti Oil Law Front who greeted the convention and wished for its success.
