Truck drivers protesting in various cities in Iran

Published by on September 6, 2018

Truck drivers across various cities throughout Iran are on strike, protesting low wages and increase in the prices of spare of parts. This is another round of such protests in Iran and has always led to crushing blows to the mullahs’ apparatus.

In various cities of Iran protest rallies were held by the truckers who parked their vehicles at the loading station.

On the other hand, it has been reported that Intelligence agents have threatened the truck drivers, and told them that they are not allowed to even leave their own houses.

Intelligence and plainclothes agents were enforcing enormous pressure on truck drivers at the city’s loading station, threatening them in their attempt to prevent another strike.

Truck drivers in the city of Shapour near Isfahan went on strike on Sunday and held a rally after parking all their vehicles. These drivers are protesting low wages and increasingly expensive spare parts.

Abolish death penalty

Please Sign our Petition

Dear Secretary General of United Nations,

The number of executions is rising in Iran, journalists are being detained for doing their job and activists face cruel and degrading punishments, long prison terms and even execution. According to the most recent reports by Amnesty International and the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child, “Iran’s judiciary continues to sentence child offenders to death, and carry out their execution by hanging”. Also, on August 9th, 2016 the son of late Ayatollah Hossein Ali Montazeri, Khomeini’s designated successor in 1988, published a shocking audio tape of his father’s meeting with the “Death Commission” which summarily and extra-judicially executed tens of thousands of political prisoners held in jails across Iran. The massacre was carried out on the basis of a fatwa by the regime’s then-Supreme Leader Khomeini.

We, the undersigned, hereby urge you to take up this issue and raise it in the General Assembly in order to;

1. Put pressure on Iran to immediately halt the executions and abolish death penalty in Iran.
2. Call on all Western governments to make any improvement in economic relations with Iran contingent on its human rights record.
3. Demand in its resolution on human rights violations in Iran, to bring the perpetrators of 1988 massacre (one of the worst atrocities the post-war world has ever seen – Geoffrey Robertson-QC) to justice before an international tribunal.

Executions must stop.
