Urgent call for action in support of detained and tortured workers and labor activists in Iran
Sunday November 3, 2019 11:00 AM, Bernal Heights Library,500 Cortland St. San Francisco, CA
Solidarity Forum & Video Screening
Join our solidarity meeting to protest the long pris- on sentenses and torture against workers and labor activists in Iran issued by the Islamic Republic of Iran’s judiciary.
There have been major strikes including the Haft Tapeh Sugarcane Workers’ Syndicate strike in which two strike supporters, Esmail Bakhshi and Sepideh Gholian were arrested on November 18, 2018 and released on bail in December 2018. They were rear- rested on January 20, 2019 when they reported that the police had tortured them to make false confes- sions.
Additionally the Tehran Bus Workers’ Syndicate union activists Reza Shahabi and Hassan Saeidi have also been arrested and subjected to repressive actions for supporting their strike action. These workers have been fighting privatization and cor- ruption. In some cases, workers have not been paid for more than 6 months.
Haft Tapeh Sugarcane Workers’ Syndicate, Iranian Teachers’ Trade association, Ahvaz steel workers and many other workers have been struggling for labor and human rights.
The struggle of Iranian workers is an issue for all workers including in the United States. We stand with our brothers and sisters in solidarity and de- mand that the government release the jailed trade unionists NOW!
We oppose the capitalist war on workers in the US and Iran and must build joint solidarity links and actions.
