Support Iranian labour activists

Submitted by Matthew on 22 August, 2012 - 9:00

Alireza Asgari and Jalil Mohammadi, labour activists and members of the Coordinating Committee to Help Form Workers’ Organisations, were arrested when Iranian security forces raided the annual general meeting of the Committee on 15 June.

Asgari has now been sentenced to serve a year in prison. Mohammadi, suffering from a deteriorating physical condition sustained during his interrogation, was given a three-year suspended sentence. He must report regularly to authorities.

The International Alliance in Support of Workers in Iran is organising protests against these sentences. More details here.
