The Class War against Terror

Railway Workers in Basra have been engaged in continuous, all-out strike action since the beginning of January 2005, resulting in the cessation of all Rail Transport from Basra. The strike began as a result of the previously reported attacks on Transport workers including the recent kidnapping of 7 train drivers and the beating and harassment of others by criminals, terrorists and brigands.
