Donate your frequent flyer miles
(or dollars) to support the Iraqi Labor TourBetween June 4 and June 29, U.S. Labor Against the War will
sponsor a tour by two of Iraq's most important labor leaders. Faleh Abood Umara
is the General Secretary of the Oil Workers Federation. Hashmiya Mohsen al
Hussein is the President of the Electrical Utility Workers Union, and the first
woman to lead a major union in Iraq. They will appear at events in Washington,
DC, Los Angeles, San Jose, Santa Cruz, San Francisco, Berkeley, Boston,
Philadelphia, New York City, Chicago (including the UFPJ National Assembly),
Milwaukee and Atlanta (for the U.S. Social Forum).
USLAW needs your help to make
this tour possible. USLAW is
appealing to supporters, members and affiliates to donate frequent flyer
miles for the Iraqi delegates travel. As you can imagine, airfare is by
far the largest expense incurred in such a tour, and your contribution will
greatly reduce that cost.
Please consider making a donation of the
equivalent of one (or more) round-trip ticket's worth of frequent flyer miles.
Note that this amount may vary depending upon the frequent flyer program in
which you are a member.
If you don't have
miles to donate, consider making a financial contribution to help defray the
cost of airline tickets, hotels and other tour expenses. Donate on-line at
the USLAW website or send your contribution payable to USLAW Iraq
