Al-Wafd: ‘Hadi Saleh was a brave man’

The leading Egyptian newspaper ‘Al-Wafd’, published a tribute on 31 January 2005 to Hadi Saleh, the International Secretary of the IFTU who was brutally murdered in his home by former Saddam loyalists. The publication of this fulsome tribute to the life of Hadi is extremely significant in one of the leading daily Arabic broadsheets and represents a long-overdue acknowledgement of the Iraqi people’s struggle for democracy, human rights and self-determination and against dictatorship and occupation. Unfortunately the article is not published in English, but Arabic readers may access it online here.
