On Tuesday, June 21st, representatives from two Iraqi labor unions visited Pittsburgh as part of US Labor Against the War's Tour of Iraqi National Labor Leaders. The purpose of the tour is to create a cross-cultural dialogue about the US occupation of Iraq and its effect on working people in both countries.

The were two public events. One was a lunchtime gathering at USWA; the other, an evening forum at Friends Meeting House.

The two speakers were:

Falah Awan, President of the Federation of Workers Councils and Unions of Iraq (FWCUI)

Amjad Ali Aljawhry, a Representative of the FWCUI and Union of the Unemployed in Iraq (UUI) for North America
