AAWL: Iranians workers released but others jailed

 protests%20in%20iranAs reported last week, some of the workers that had been arrested at the Khatoon Abad Copper Mines earlier this month had been released. This week, all the other workers have also been released. While free, it is probable that they will be charged in the near future, therefore solidarity is still needed. In an unrelated matter, this week, Davoud Razavi, a member of the Syndicate of Workers of Tehran and Suburbs Bus Company (Vahed Syndicate), was sentenced to five years in prison. His ‘crime’ was for taking part in workers’ demonstrations.
