More worrying news from Iran

Mansour Osanloo, the jailed leader of the bus workers’ union in Tehran, faces the possible loss of his eyesight unless he receives urgent medical attention – which the Iranian authorities are denying him. As a former trade union official who has myself had severe vision problems in the past, this case resonates especially with me – but I hope will also concern you.
Amnesty International has just now launched an online campaign calling on the Iranian government to allow Osanloo to receive medical attention. I urge you to sent off your message today. The Iranian government must be made aware that the world is watching.
The International Transport Workers Federation (ITF), which has spearheaded the international campaign in defence of Osanloo, has now produced a short film entitled “Freedom Will Come” which tells his story. It can be viewed online on YouTube here.
