Earlier this month, Reza Shahabi, a member of the Tehran bus workers’ syndicate, was given a five day reprieve from his jail sentence in order to get proper medical care. Reza who has been imprisoned for his labour activities is in a bad state of health having suffered two strokes last December. In other labour news, the militant Haft Tapeh Sugarcane Workers’ Syndicate has announced that they will take over management of their workplaces if their salaries and other demands are not met. These sugar cane workers have a long and heroic history of struggle. Meanwhile the protest wave of the last two months is continuing albeit in a more hidden fashion due to government repression.
