"Surge Of Solidarity" Owed To Iraqi Trade Unions

"It's perfectly understandable that those who opposed the invasion maintain the integrity of their arguments. It's quite another to effectively adopt an "I told you so" stance and sit on one's hands at the expense of the workers' movement, women's organisations and elected Iraqi parliamentarians and parties.

"It's obscene for a minority to back insurgents who murder union leaders and would destroy civil society. With or without foreign troops, a surge of solidarity with the unions and others is needed. It's the very least one would expect from progressive internationalism."

More here, from Labour's Progressives. The sort of thing I was banging on about here.
