Worker Activists in Iran Arrested

E mail received today:


December 14, 2007: A leading member of the bus syndicate in Iran was recently arrested. Today, Mohsen Hakimi and four other worker-activists had gone to the custody to see what was occurring and when there, they too were arrested. At this point, it is uncertain as to what the specific charges are.

It is imperative to express support for these worker-activists and spread this information widely. These worker-activists need international support and solidarity. We will keep you posted as to what is happening and alert you when there is new information.

In solidarity,
Against Wage_Labour Collective Activists
