Solidarity demo with jailed Iranian trade unionist Soheil Arabi, London, October 2nd

From the Anarchist Communist Group:

News has reached the international workers community that Iranian trade unionist, Soheil Arabi, an anarcho-syndicalist prisoner, began a hunger strike in the infamous Evin prison north of Tehran on Friday September 20th. Soheil is protesting against the arrest of his mother, Farangis Mazloum, who was placed in solitary confinement by the Iranian government.

Soheil Arabi, a photography graduate and father of a young girl, was arrested by Revolutionary Guards Intelligence in the winter of 2013, and was subjected to torture in solitary confinement.

We demand the immediate release of Soheil from prison and that of his mother into the arms of their family and loved ones.

The Iranian state must bring to an immediate end its policy of indefinite internment of trade union and political activists.

Demo at Iranian Embassy, 12-2pm October 2nd, at 16 Princes Gate. London. SW7 1PT. (nearest tube South Kensington)

About nothingiseverlost

"The impulse to fight against work and management is immediately collective. As we fight against the conditions of our own lives, we see that other people are doing the same. To get anywhere we have to fight side by side. We begin to break down the divisions between us and prejudices, hierarchies, and nationalisms begin to be undermined. As we build trust and solidarity, we grow more daring and combative. More becomes possible. We get more organized, more confident, more disruptive and more powerful."
