Subject: [NYCLAW] FALLUJAH: Iraqi Raiilway Workers Refuse to Supply U.S.


9 November, Iraqi Railway workers boycott supplies to US
troops or forces belonging to US-appointed Allawi
government. Employees of the National Iraqi Railways Company
also declared that they will only agree to carry food
supplies to the Iraqi people as part of the UN for food
programme, and threatened national strike if forced to do
otherwise. The Allawi government reacted by accusing the
railway works of carrying civil disobedience. Meanwhile more
than 40 Muslim clerics of the Shia and Sunni faiths have
urged Ayatollah Ali Al-Sistani to publically declare his
opposition for Iraqi troops taking part in the attack on the
people of Falluja.

8 November, Al-Sadr movement, in a statement today, declared
that the attack on Falluja is an attack on the whole of Iraq
and called on members of the US-trained National Guard not
to participate in the US occupiers assault on Falluja.
