CPA Statement in solidarity with the Haft Tappeh & Oil industry workers

Freedom for all political prisoners

The Communist Party of Australia, CPA is concerned at reports that the Haft Tappeh & Oil industry workers have not been paid their wages forcing them to strike for their basic rights and against the privatisation of essential services that would affect the Iranian people in general.

The CPA gives its full solidarity and support for the Haft Tappeh and Oil industry workers in Iran as they struggle for their own jobs, wages and rights and against privatisation that will worsen the lot of working people in Iran.

We support the workers and their demands including:

  • Arrears payment, and their insurance renewal;
  • The return of their expelled co-workers;
  • The release of political prisoners, and putting an end to the privatisation.

We demand the release of all imprisoned workers and call for an immediate stop to the harassment, arrests, torture and clampdown on the rights of these workers in struggle and all Iranian workers.

In working class solidarity,

International Department
Communist Party of Australia
