The shame of Iran (4)

Four international trade union organisations (ITUC, ITF, IUF and EI) have declared today as the international day of solidarity with Iranian workers to support their struggle for their basic rights. Members of these confederations around the world will organize practical support towards workers in Iran today. Further details of the day of action here.
This initiative was decided long before the recent presidential election and the protests which followed but clearly it could hardly be more timely. There are, of course, massive media restriction in Iran, but it looks as if there have been at least 17 deaths in the course of the demonstrations. The BBC reviews the current impasse here.
