Iran: Determined to live in dignity: Iranian trade unionists' struggle for rights
Iran's workers are fighting to protect their rights and their livelihoods. Prohibited by law from unionizing freely and independently, they are battling for decent wages, better working conditions and job security. They want their voices to be heard and their labour rights to be respected. The response of the government has been brutal – the authorities regularly attack, harass and detain trade unionists. Some are serving long sentences.
