"Oil wealth belongs to the Iraqi people"

There is an excellent piece by Ewa Jasiewicz in today's Sunday Independent about the big oil multinationals in Iraq aren't having an easy time getting their thieving paws on the oil.

There has been resistence by the Iraqi people to stop this happening especially from the Iraqi Federation of Oil Unions (Ifou) who went on strike in June this year.

Hassan Jumaa Awad, Ifou president: "We will continue our efforts to serve our members and defend our oil wealth, no matter what the cost."
