Important LINKS

Iraqis struggling to free themselves from myriad forms of oppression rarely find an audience in the United States. But it is vital for international solidarity that there be a mutual exchange of ideas. Thus we view critical discussion and debate about these movements to be of utmost importance.

These links are meant for the purposes of information, education, and discussion. The views expressed on these websites do not necessarily reflect those of NO-IFS, and links to organizations do not indicate endorsement by NO-IFS.
