Ziegelei-Arbeiter in Vayghan-Shabestar/Iran setzen nach siebzentägigem Streik Lohnerhöhung durch

4000 brick kiln workers win pay rise after a 17-day strike!

The 4000 workers at the brick kilns of Vayghan-Shabestar, in East Azerbaijan province, have won better pay and benefits following a 17-day strike. Iranian Workers’ Solidarity Network has translated two statements by the Free Trade Union of Iranian Workers on this strike.

Victory of Vayghan-Shabestar brick kiln workers after a 17-day united strike

On Sunday July 5th 2009 the brick kiln workers of Vayghan-Shabestar gained an important victory after 17 days of united resistance and struggle. The achievements of this 17-day strike were: wages of 11 tomans (¢1.1) per brick, payment of all workers’ insurance and of costs for transporting the luggage of workers in these workshops, and the boss having to pay a daily bread subsidy to the doors of homes of workers living near the kilns.

Before this the workers were being paid 10 tomans a brick and the boss was refusing to set the wage rate for this year. The workers of Shabestar kilns have, this year and last year, led the way in the struggle for pay rises and every year they have won a noticeable victory. The workers and their families have had to bear great hardship in winning this victory and we have mentioned their praise-worthy resistance in previous reports.

The Free Trade Union of Iranian Workers congratulates the workers of Shabestar kilns and their families and all Iranian workers and calls on workers in other production and service sectors to organise general assemblies and set up their organisations in order to struggle for their wages and their denied rights.

Long live workers’ class solidarity.

Strike by 4000 brick kiln workers in Shabestar

According to reports received by the Free Trade Union of Iranian Workers, the workers of the brick kilns in Vayghan-Shabestar went on strike on June 19th to protest against the non-payment of their wages. There are over 4000 workers in the Vayghan kilns, and after the boss refused to set their wage level, they went on an indefinite strike and elected representatives to lead the strike. In previous years the workers at the brick kilns have had to strike to raise their wages and have been successful.

According to news received the boss of the Vayghan-Shabestar kilns had earlier called on the police to help him. He had put up a notice at the office of the brickworks threatened the workers, saying that striking workers would be dealt with and that they would be sentenced to six months in jail. But the workers were determined and did not pay any attention to the threats of the boss and his agents. They began a united and powerful strike.

Iran-Update 08.07. 2009

Posted by entdinglichung - 8. Juli 2009

Weitere Artikel zum Thema auf dieser Seite unter https://entdinglichung.wordpress.com/category/iran/:

1.) Seiten mit regelmässig aktualisierter Berichterstattung: Revolutionary Road (hier auch ein Update vom gestrigen Tag), News from the struggles in Iran (HOPI), Révolution en Iran, Rise of The Iranian People und LabourStart.

2.) Ein Aufruf von Iran Solidarity:

„In June 2009 millions of people came out on to the streets of Iran for freedom and an end to the Islamic regime. Whilst the June 12 election was a pretext for the protests – elections have never been free or fair in Iran – it has opened the space for people to come to the fore with their own slogans.

The world has been encouraged by the protestors’ bravery and humane demands and horrified by the all-out repression they have faced. It has seen a different image of Iran – one of a population that refuses to kneel even after 30 years of living under Islamic rule.

The dawn that this movement heralds for us across the world is a promising one – one that aims to bring Iran into the 21st century and break the back of the political Islamic movement internationally.

This is a movement that must be supported.


We, the undersigned, join Iran Solidarity to declare our unequivocal solidarity with the people of Iran. We hear their call for freedom and stand with them in opposition to the Islamic regime of Iran.

We demand:

1. The immediate release of all those imprisoned during the recent protests and all political prisoners

2. The arrest and public prosecution of those responsible for the current killings and atrocities and for those committed during the last 30 years

3. Proper medical attention to those wounded during the protests and ill-treated and tortured in prison. Information on the status of the dead, wounded and arrested to their families. The wounded and arrested must have access to their family members. Family members must be allowed to bury their loved ones where they choose.

4. A ban on torture

5. The abolition of the death penalty and stoning

6. Unconditional freedom of expression, thought, organisation, demonstration, and strike

7. Unconditional freedom of the press and media and an end to restrictions on
communications, including the internet, telephone, mobiles and satellite television programmes

8. An end to compulsory veiling and gender apartheid

9. The abolition of discriminatory laws against women and the establishment of complete equality between men and women

10. The complete separation of religion from the state, judiciary, education and religious freedom and atheism as a private matter.

Moreover, we call on all governments and international institutions to isolate the Islamic Republic of Iran and break all diplomatic ties with it. We are opposed to military intervention and economic sanctions because of their adverse affects on people’s lives.

The people of Iran have spoken; we stand with them.“

3.) Ein schon einige Wochen altes aber erst jetzt online gestelltes Statement des Congress of Nationalities for a Federal Iran zum Ausgang der Wahlen, der CNFI ist ein Bündnis von 16 bürgerlichen und sozialdemokratischen Exil- und Untergrundorganisationen (darunter die PDK-I, KOMALA und mehrere Gruppen aus Aserbaidschan und Belutschistan) der nationalen Minderheiten im Iran

An announcement on recent election in Iran

The Islamic regime in Iran shows no respect for the real outcome of the elections that took place under its own non-democratic frame works and discriminatory procedures on 12 June 2009. The regime carried out a political coup instead, in order to maintain the Supreme Leader’s favoured candidate, Mr Ahmadinejad, in power.

Iranian people have repeatedly had nationally and regionally revolutions in the past century to achieve your civil and democratic rights, but each victory again and again became confiscated and robbed by the coup makers to stabilize their dictatorship and autocracy.

Again another coup took place, under the guidance and support of Iranian religious Supreme Leader “Walye faqih Ali Khamenei” by his led Revolutionary Guards and Basijis to keep Ahmadinejad his favourite president in power.

In reply to this coup you the people of Iran have risked your life and gone out on the streets, displayed through a major historical mass demonstration in millions, and showing your discourse and anger to the rulers of Iran and the world. You have come out to defeat the dictators and to achieve all the civil rights that you have been deprived of during the recent century.

You have come to the streets for your rights with regard to: civil rights, democracy, the equality before the law, right to elect and be elected without discrimination in a free of cheating election, and the right to have access to modern and free mass media.

The problem is not just Ahmadinejad and Khamenei. The problem lies in the Iranian political system’s nature with its structure based on an absolute dictatorship in the form of “welayete faqih“. This problem has no stable solution but dealing with its roots’ factors in a radical way. The roots lie in the current Iranian Constitution and the relationship between the government and citizens of Iran that are shaped and channelled in a dictatorial and widespread discriminative way. The effective continuity and sustainability of the current fight and mass protest will ensure the achievement of our democratic and civil rights.

We the political parties and organizations in the “Congress of Nationalities for a Federal Iran= CNFI” condemn the cheating and brutalities of the Islamic Regime of Iran against its own people and support people’s fight for their democratic, just and fair demands of abolishing the fraudulent 10th presidency election.

The people of Iran who are composed of several nationalities with diverse cultural, religious and social origins are in need of a united fight more than ever during the current sensitive campaign.

Once again we support your struggle throughout Iran, and condemn the regime’s cruel actions by the brutal massacre that took place during the peaceful mass demonstration on last Monday. We extend our friendship and solidarity hands to all Iranian democratic forces for cooperation and a united campaign against the dictatorship for a decentralized democratic and a plural political system in Iran.

The Congress of Nationalities for a Federal Iran (CNFI), June 19, 2009″

4.) Aus einem Aufruf der Organisation for Women’s Liberation an die Frauen im Iran:

„Your struggles against the misogynous regime of Islamic Republic have gained great respect and admiration by the world. Your struggles are being followed by the world. Your admirable bravery against the armed Islamic thugs and your resolute resistance against suppression and violence demonstrate your deepest ambition for freedom. Now, even the most unaware and ambivalent “experts on Iran” too have realised this truth that Iran is not an Islamic society and that people of Iran want freedom, equality and an end to the Islamic regime. The extensive presence of women in the forefront of the mass protest movement against the regime showed the existence of a mass movement for women’s liberation. The latter has become the symbol of people’s movement against the Islamic regime. It is not coincidental that Neda, the young brave girl who was shot by the Islamic thugs in the recent unrests and lost her life, has become the symbol of people’s movement against the regime.“

5.) Aus einem Interview mit einem im Exil lebenden iranischen Marxisten in der aktuellen Avanti:

„Hinter den Massenprotesten steht überhaupt keine Organisation. Mussavi hat zwar über seine Internetseite einen gewissen Einfluss gehabt, weil er mit seiner Erklärung zum Wahlausgang und zu den anschließenden ersten Kundgebungen Signale gegeben hat. Aber alles, was sich danach entwickelt hat, war spontan. Die Studentenorganisationen, die in den späten 90er Jahren demonstriert haben, sind alle brutal zerschlagen worden. Von ihnen haben nur einzelne Menschen die Repression überlebt und sind nicht ins Gefängnis gekommen oder umgebracht worden. Heute gibt es keine nennenswerten Organisationen. Bei den Arbeitern überwiegt noch die Angst und es gibt aufgrund der Repression keine landesweiten Organisationen.

Die Proteste sind in ihrer Anfangsphase vor allem von den Menschen getragen worden, die noch nie politisch aktiv waren, die aber die Schnauze voll haben von den Vorschriften der Regierung. Die Proteste werden gerade blutig niedergeknüppelt, aber man kann nicht Hunderttausende ins Gefängnis stecken. Sie werden sich organisieren. Die erste Form des anhaltenden Widerstands ist das Demonstrieren auf den Dächern. Dort rufen sie „Allah hu Akbar“ (Gott ist groß). Das ist kein Bekenntnis zur islamischen Republik, sondern ein Hilferuf und Protest, ein Ruf, der auch von Nicht-Religiösen gebraucht wird.“

6.) Aus einem auf der Webseite von Human Rights Activists in Iran dokumentierten Gutachten hoher Geistlicher zur im Iran illegalen Bahai-Religion (~ 1% der Bevölkerung):

„Response of the Ayatollahs to the Questions in Regards to Baha’is

Ayatollah Khamenei:

All followers of the misled Baha’i sect are infidels and unclean. Muslims should not come in touch with food and other substances containing moisture that is touched by Baha’is. The believers should counter this sect’s sedition and corruption.

Ayatollah Behjat:

They are unclean. Believers should not socially interact with them.

Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi:

All kinds of interaction, socializing, marriage, buying, selling and other contact with the misled Baha’i sect is forbidden. Muslims must totally refrain from such actions.

The followers of the misled Baha’i sect are not Muslims and all interaction with them is forbidden.“

7.) Aus einem (offenen?!) Brief von Mehdi Mahdavikia zum Zustand des iranischen Fussballs:

„The last word is toward those whom have called the Team-e-Meli player s traitors!

Are you able to provide any evidence to prove what you have said about the Team-e-Meli players? Players whom have played for the team without any concerns about money and by bearing hard and long, Team-e-Meli camps and with all the mental pressures from playing important games which would change the fate of the team! Away from their families for long times, just to make their people happy and bring glory to their country! Players whom done everything they could to defend Iran’s name and soccer not only in Asia, but also worldwide and in European leagues!

They haven’t done all these hard work so now you few people call them with these undeserved names! I suggest that once you put your heads on the pillow at night think about conscience and dignity so the next morning before you perform any task you think of these two important values of human being and call the Team-e-Meli players with well-deserved names.“
