Remembering Azad Ahmed

Submitted by Matthew on 13 November, 2013 - 11:19

On Saturday 2 November a memorial service was held in London by the Worker-Communist Party of Iraq and Iraqi Kurdistan in memory of their fallen comrade Azad Ahmed.

Azad was kidnapped and killed a week previously in Kirkuk, Iraq by unknown assailants. Members of the Worker-Communist Party of Iraq, Kurdistan and Iran were all present to pay tribute to Ahmed, a longstanding member of the Iraqi party’s Central Committee, who had long been a prominent advocate of secularism, pluralism and workers’ rights in Iraq.

Workers’ Liberty also sent a solidarity message of condolence and support, remarking on our pride in the links we have with comrades in Iraq, Kurdistan and Iran and pledging to continue working together with them in the fight for a better world.
