Rep. Dennis J. Kucinich (D-OH) charged: "To steal Iraq's oil resources is in itself a War Crime...It cries out for justice...The wealth of Iraq belongs to the people of Iraq." He spoke at a press conference on Capitol Hill, on Sept. 5, 2007. The popular Congressman comments were made in solidarity with the efforts of US Labor Against the War (USLAW); United for Peace & Justice (UFPJ); and the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC). These groups are supporting the Iraqi Oil Workers and their unions in opposing the scheme launched by the Bush-Cheney Gang to privatize most of Iraq's oil. Earlier in the day, a rally was held at the office of Bearing Point, near the Navy Yard. Bearing Point is the contractor, who the unions claim was "hired to do the job!" After speeches at that site, the demonstrators marched to the U.S. Capitol. Mrs. Hashmeya Muhsin Hussein, President of the Iraqi Electrical Unity Workers, also spoke at the Kucinich's press conference. It was held on the Cannon's Terrace. Kucinich praised, too, the "courage" of the Iraqi oil workers and their union leaders.
