Crackdown on Iranian oil workers

Hopi activists have heard  that a number of oil workers and  employees at the Tehran Oil refinery havee been arrested – a clear sign that the regime fears a strike.

The oil workers’ militancy is in part due to their anger about Ahmadinejad’s  silly attempts to artificially create a better price of oil per barrel (looking like double the world market price)  by suggesting that 200-litre barrels should be used instead of 100-litre ones.

In other news, there has been a demonstration by Protest by Parris Rissandighi (textile) workers in Sanadaj in front of the government offices. They are demonstrating about the closures of plants and widespread  job losses.
