This is to request your assistant in connecting Iran Solidarity-Vancouver network with our sisters and brothers in CAW Local 111, in Vancouver. CAW local 111, in conjunction with the Vancouver and District Labour Council(VDLC) and the International Confederation of Trade Unions(ICTU) have shown their solidarity and support with Mansour Osanlou, the president of Tehran Bud Drivers' Union who is still in jail. Once again we need their urgent action in support of entire executive of Tehran Bus Drivers' Union who are in captivity of the Islamic Regime in Iran and an attempt to stop the madness of this regime. The Islamic regime in Iran has waged a full force war against the people by arresting Labour activists, Human rights activists, Children rights activists, Students, women, progressive Journalists and lawyers who dare to represent them. In the last few weeks a new wave of torture and massive executions are being publicly practiced by the Islamic regime. To stop this brutality, to call for the release of political prisoners, to practice of stoning and execution, Iran solidarity-Vancouver request full support of labour movement in general and our sisters and brothers in CAW Local 111 in particular.
