Torture in Bush’s ‘new’ Iraq


This video is the trailer of the film Ghosts of Abu Ghraib, about prisoner abuse in Abu Ghraib in Iraq.

The government of “liberated” Iraq operates secret prisons and routinely tortures prisoners to extract confessions that are used to convict them, Amnesty charged today. See also here.

  1. Iraqi leather and textile workers protest non-payment of wages

    Workers employed by the General Company of Leather Products and Textile protested February 1 at the gates of the company’s headquarters in Baghdad, demanding the immediate payment of their overdue wages.

    Meanwhile, workers in Hilla Textile Factory, south of Baghdad, held a one-day general strike demanding payment of their overdue wages.

    One of the protesters said that the factory’s management had tried to prevent workers from holding a strike and speaking to the media.

    Built in the early 1970s, the Hilla Textile factory is one of the oldest textile sites in Iraq. It currently has a workforce of more than 10,000. At least 40 workers were killed last May at the factory in a bomb explosion.
