Reza Shahabi on dry hunger strike

Help Free Reza: An open Letter by the Family of Reza Shahabi

To: Workers, workers‘ organizations, human rights organizations and media

As you may be aware, Reza Shahabi, an imprisoned worker (the Treasurer and member of the board of directors of the Syndicate of Workers of Tehran and Suburbs Bus Company) who is incarcerated in section 209 of Evin Prison, have gone on dry hunger strike since December 4, 2010; and, as a result of his previous poor health conditions and the illnesses which have been developed since his incarceration six months ago, his life is now seriously endangered. Although his release letter was issued on October 11, 2010 and a bail of 60 million Toman (about US$57,000) had been posted for him by his family, he has not been freed yet. On the other hand, another bail application with the amount of 100 million toman was given simultaneously to Reza to sign. Moreover, the two judicial authorities that we have been referred to are refusing to provide any information about Reza Shahabi’s case and even deny that they are in charge of his file.

Reza Shahabi has been in prison for six months only for defending workers‘ rights. It has been two months since his conditional release has been issued, and now he is on dry hunger strike and we are worried about his already deteriorating health conditions. There is now an imminent danger to his health and we have no idea what other threats to his precarious health might await him.

We hereby call on all workers, labour organizations, human rights organizations, media and all concerned individuals to take all necessary steps for the unconditional freedom of Reza Shahabi, his imprisoned colleagues and other jailed workers.

The spouse, brothers and other family members of Reza Shahabi

Urgent Action: Send Your Protest letters now

Free Reza Shahabi Now

Reza Shahabi, an imprisoned worker (the Treasurer and member of the board of directors of the Syndicate of Workers of Tehran and Suburbs Bus Company) who is incarcerated in section 209 of Evin Prison since June 12, 2010, have gone on dry hunger strike since December 4, 2010 to protest against his unjust incarceration and the refusal of authorities to release him despite the fact that his family had deposited 60 million Toman (about 57,000 US Dollar) as surety. He is refusing consumption of both food and liquids. Mr. Shahabi’s heath is in imminent danger.

I call on your government to release Reza Shahabi and other jailed workers immediately and unconditionally and to respect workers‘ rights in Iran.

Die National Campaign Against Fees and Cuts (NCA£C) zum gestrigen Tage:

Press Statement – Police Violence and Vote on Tuition Fee Increase

The National Campaign Against Fees and Cuts utterly condemns the violence inflicted on demonstrators by the police on the 9th of December national demonstration in central London and reiterate that the passing of the bill on the tuition fee increase will not deter, nor discourage future actions.

The coalition government managed to pass the tuition fee increase by 21 votes only – a sign of how weak the government is and that it can be beaten.  Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg, suffered a huge blow to his leadership policies as 21 of his MPs rebelled against the tuition fee increase.

The resistance will continue in the new year. The National Campaign Against Fees and Cuts, as well as thousands of students across the country, will not give in until these cuts and fee increases are stopped.

Mounted police charging and ‘kettling’ of protesters are disgusting attacks on people’s right to protest and cannot be justified. The demonstration was militant but good natured as thousands assembled in Parliament square. The police adopted a hands-off approach until around 15.30h when ‘kettling’ began, followed by increasingly violent assaults on students.

The police attacked protesters, journalists and even a demonstrator in a wheel chair, dragging him across the ground. Many people were hospitalised and at the time of writing (23.30h) many people were still contained in Westminster, a cruel form of collective punishment for defying the government.
