Mohammed Jarrahi, a member of the Co-ordination Committee for the Formation of Labour Organisations, went on hunger strike on May 16.

Mr. Jarrahi and three of his fellow inmates in the 'methadone wing' of Tabriz Central Prison went on hunger strike 10 days ago to protest against the anti-worker sentences they have been handed down and the terrible conditions of this wing of the jail.

Shahrokh Zamani is also in Tabriz Central Prison but is kept separately and in a different wing. The prison authorities are also treating him very badly.

Iranian Workers' Solidarity Network condemns the Iranian regime's imprisonment of labour activists and demands the immediate and unconditional release of all labour activists and workers.
