Our Solidarity Message For Reza Shahabi

We learned that Reza Shahabi, a member of the Executive Committee of the Trade Union of the Tehran Vahed Bus Company, began hunger strike to protest repression of prisoners and his transfer from Evin Prison to Rajai Shahr Prison and he was beaten in the prison infirmary.

We strongly condemn this inhuman assault by the Iranian regime and prison management. We protest the repression of workers by the Iranian rulers and their state. And we demand the immediate and unconditional release of all imprisoned workers and trade unionists, including Reza Shahabi.

Stop the repression of and bands on trade unions and other workers’ organisations!

Iranian working class is not alone!
