To trade unions, organizations, political parties and all supporters of working class all over the world!
Shahrokh Zamani, a member of “House-Painter Workers Union”, who is currently serving an 11 years prison sentences, wrote a letter of protest to the International Labour Organization ILO on November 6th, 2012. In this letter he protests against the injustice that is imposed on the working class in Iran.
In this Letter out of Rajaei-Shahr prison Shahrokh Zamani requested ILO to complaint against the rightlessness and repression of workers in Iran, but there has not been and still is no reaction or respond from the part of ILO.
We object this eye-opening silence of the ILO and call all trade unions, political parties, organizations and well-known individuals, who care for the worries of the workers, to join in and to challenge the indifference and inaction of ILO towards Islamic regime of Iran, which signs the ILO conventions and tramples on them.
We give strong support to Shahrokh Zamani’s protest letter and demand the immediate actions for release of all imprisoned workers such as Shahrokh Zamani, Reza Shahabi, Behnam Ebrahim Zadeh, Mohammad Jarahi, Afshin Osanloo and others.
We seek trade unions´s and labour organization´s support to protest against the 
repression and hostility towards the workers in Iran.
