Iran: Workers’ Protest Rally Attacked by Repressive Forces, Tens Arrested

Call for urgent action to free those arrested, condemn regime’s anti-worker policies

A big number of workers, deprived and plundered individuals gathered today May 1, the World day of Labour, in front of the mullahs’ parliament chanting slogans “Workers, teachers, students, unite, unite”, “High prices, inflation, our people’s plague”, “Government traitor, parliament supporter”,” Our pain is your pain, O people join us” and “Down with the worker, hail to the oppressor” to protest against anti-worker policies of the mullahs’ regime.

Repressive security forces as well as special guard units attacked the demonstrators and beat them and arrested tens of protestors. The public changed their slogans to “Shame on you, shame on you” and “Don’t be afraid, we are all together” in order to face the attackers.

Similar protests and demonstrations were held by workers and deprived in a number of other cities like Mashad and Marivan with anti government slogans.

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, president-elect of the resistance hailed the protesting workers and demonstrators calling the public especially the youth to their support, urging the condemnation of anti-worker policies of the mullahs’ regime by international bodies in defense of human and workers’ rights and asking for urgent action to release those arrested.

Insisting that the usurped rights of workers would be restored by a struggle against the totality of the anti-worker regime, Mrs Rajavi added: “In spite of pressures and anti-worker policies of the mullahs’ regime, workers and toilers of Iran will neither rest nor surrender; they have shown as much with their protests and uprisings over the past year. They can rely on the ongoing support and solidarity of women, youth, students and all the disenchanted sectors of Iranian society. “

FREE ALL Labor activists in Iran

I express my strongest protest against the arrest and detention of those who participated in the gathering of May Day 2019 in Tehran. I demand the following:

♦️All the May Day detainees in Iran must be immediately and unconditionally released!
♦️All charges against labor rights activists including ‘national security’ charges must be dropped!
♦️The terror and violence against workers and their families must stop!
♦️Workers in Iran should be able to freely exercise their fundamental rights to organize, set up their own organisations, and take part in rallies, assemblies and protests, and to take part in strike action!
