Team for Iraq

Chennai, Feb. 28: A 10-member delegation of Left MPs and leaders of trade unions and youth organisations will leave New Delhi for Baghdad on March 1 to express solidarity with the Iraqi people against America’s “war designs”, reports our special correspondent.

CPM legislator Basudeb Acharia, who is also the deputy leader of the party in the Lok Sabha, will head the team. It also includes representatives from its fraternal parties and organisations — the CPI, the RSP, the Forward Bloc, the Citu, the Aituc, the All-India Democratic Women’s Association, the Democratic Youth Federation of India — and some journalists.

The tour, announced here at a public meeting organised by the anti-war committee under the aegis of the Left parties, seeks to condemn the US’ war preparedness to attack Iraq.
