Stopp trakassering av iranske fagorganiserte!
- Vi er bekymret for den stadig vanskeligere situasjonen for fagforeninger i Iran, skriver LO i Norge i et brev til iranske myndigheter. - Flere fagforeningsaktivister blir trakassert og arrestert.
I brevet, som er signert av LOs 1. nestleder Peggy Hessen Følsvik, står det blant annet:
"The Norwegian Confederation of Trade Unions (LO-Norway), representing more than 900.000 workers in Norway, is writing to you to protest a flagrant violation of trade union rights in your country. There are several members of the independent labour movement in Iran who are harassed and in prison, while they have only been engaging in fully legitimate trade union work.

LO-Norway is extremely concerned by the continuous deterioration in the situation of trade union and other fundamental human rights in the Islamic Republic of Iran. This repression has particularly led to the death or prison of several unionists in Iran.
LO-Norway is determined to bring full political and moral support to Iranian workers and their legitimate demands to freedom of association and their rights without fear of arrest or other harassment.
LO-Norway is writing to urge you to order the immediate release of all detained trade union activists and leaders."
