We Condemn Arrest of Labour activists- Haft-tapeh Sugar-cane Syndicate
(Originally published in Farsi at: CCHFWO)
Workers, freedom loving people!
It is more than 20 days since a number of Coordinating Committee to Help Form Workers’ Organizations members, Ghaaleb Hoseini, Khaaled Hoseini, Behzaad Faraj-ollahi, Vafaa Ghaaderi, Ali Aazaadi, and Haamed Mahmood-nezhaad have been arrested and despite follow up by their families and friends are still detained in uncertainty.
These arrests, intimidations and threats are taking place while Fariborz Raeys-daanaa, Mohammad Jaraahi, Shahrokh Zamaani, Pedraam Nasr-ollahi, Rasoul Bodaaghi, Abdol-rezaa Ghanbari as well as many other labour and political activists are imprisoned under horrendous conditions.
These labour activists are being detained and prosecuted while the poor classes are living in misery due to the low life standards and wages and high level of unemployment. Naturally under such circumstances the working class and labour activists have no other choice but struggle to form independent labour organisations to pursuit their demands and claims, and these suppressive actions can not stop the efforts and struggles of the labour activists.
We Haft-tapeh Sugar cane workers condemn the arrest of these activists and demand their unconditional release of all imprisoned labourers and labour activists.
