Shahrokh Zamani on hunger strike after transfer to Ghezel Hesar Prison

Shahrokh Zamani, a member of the Painters’ Union, was charged with “endangering national security” and “participating in an illegal organisation” by the Iranian regime after he attempted to build an independent trade union.

While in prison he has been physically and psychologically abused, denied medication and denied access to visitors. Following his recent transfer to the notorious Ghezel Hesar prison he has been on hunger strike for over 29 days.

We appeal to all trade unionists, socialists, women’s, students’ and LGBT activists, to call on the blood-soaked Iranian regime to release Shahrokh Zamani and all other class-war prisoners immediately and unconditionally. We hold the Iranian regime’s officials responsible for the well-being of imprisoned labour activists like Shahrokh and they will one day be held accountable for their crimes against the working class.
