As reported in last week’s news , the Iranian working class lost a tireless leader when Shahrokh Zamani died in an Iranian prison. Iranian unions have rallied to his cause and are calling for justice for his death . Internationally, Shahrokh’s death has sparked many many actions and protests in solidarity with workers  in Iran, though the Iranian government’s response has been to arrest more trade unionists. The fight for the rights of Iranian workers will continue  both inside and outside Iran.
