Gozareshgaran appeal in protest for the re-arrest of Mahmoud Salehi and in condemnation of the Islamic Republic of Iran

The Islamic Republic, in its continuation of the serial killings and silencing labor activists in Iran, and after driving Afshin Osanlo, Shahrokh Zamani, Korosh Bakhshandeh and Mohammad Jarahi to the verge of death, who imprisoned Reza Shahabi, who has critical physical health conditions, in the notorious dungeon, under inhuman pressures. Then, the capture and torturing of Mohammad Nazari, Ismail Abdi, Mahmoud Beheshti Langroudi, Mohsen Omrani, and Rasoul Bedaghi, by its security guards and plain clothes Gestapo’s arbitrarily re-arrested Mahmoud Salehi , who was leaving hospital after his dialyzes.This action has led to a wave of disgust & abhorrence and condemnation of the regime’s authorities and its agents (henchmen), therefore, the labor activists and labor organizations abroad are preparing for national & global protesting actions. Labor activists and political prisoners inside prison, with their protests and long-term hunger strike, cry out for justice, and they are raging against the ruling class policies for depriving them of the basic human rights as well. For years, noble, honest and militant people such as Reza Shahabi and Mahmoud Salehi have been in the cross-fire of the regime’s judicial authorities. They have neither life, nor financial securities and their arrest is every day’s discourse.

Based on our historic experiences & documented evidence, we know that the ruling class in Iran, have no regard for the public opinions and social political prisoners’ families at all, and in any condition, it applies its sinister intentions on these activists. Therefore, all of the labor activists and labor advocates of Iran, with the most possible solidarity together, with their power, putting the Islamic Regime on the verge of impasse, believing that unconditionally, they could release Shahabis and Shalehis and other social and political prisoners as well.

We, the undersigned, along with all of the other protests and actions, whilst condemning these anti-labor and anti-human acts in Iran, demand the immediate and unconditional release of Mahmoud Salehi and Reza Shahabi, and all other social and political prisoners.
