The tour will provide a rare opportunity for Oregonians to hear directly from Iraqi labor union leaders who struggled for years under Saddam Hussein's regime and continue to try to organize workers under violence and occupation.

The Oregon AFL-CIO is sponsoring the visit along with dozens of labor organizations and social justice groups.
