Mansoor Osanloo is re-arrested

Mansoor Osanloo is arrested

Yesterday, "Mansour Osanloo, the President of the Syndicate of Workers of the Tehran and Suburbs Bus Company, the first independent union in Iran after over 20 years and an affiliate of the International Transport Workers’ Federation (ITF), was arrested by plain clothes agents who refused to show any identification or arrest warrants."

The struggle of the bus company workers is one of the key fronts in the fight against Iran's brutal theocratic regime.
