AAWL: Death of Iranian trade unionist in jail sparks global condemnation


 

As reported in last week’s news [2], the Iranian working class lost a tireless leader when Shahrokh Zamani died in an Iranian prison. Iranian unions have rallied to his cause and are calling for justice for his death [3]. Internationally, Shahrokh’s death has sparked many many actions and protests in solidarity with workers [4] in Iran, though the Iranian government’s response has been to arrest more trade unionists. The fight for the rights of Iranian workers will continue [5] both inside and outside Iran.
