28th November 2022 - As protests and uprisings continue across Iran, members of different sectors of Iran's society have gone of strike with various demands of their own. These include university students, industry workers and drivers.
These coordinated strikes across the country show that people are becoming more organised to show a united front against the regime's oppressive security forces.
Students: The students and professors at Tehran University’s Faculty of Psychology and Educational Sciences started a sit-in protest against the suppression of students and professors and condemned the killing and arresting of teenagers and youths. In Karaj, students protested by chanting “Death to Khamenei.” The defiant youths set fire to a large government-installed banner on Jordan Street in Tehran and a banner of paramilitary Basij forces in Babolsar. They also hoisted and installed a banner on Tehran’s highways that read, “Long live the resistance from Khash to Mahabad.”
Steel company workers: Esfahan Steel Company’s workers continued their strike, and the drivers joined them. As a result, the loading lines were disrupted, the containers were stopped from being loaded, and the cranes were left idle. In Hormozgan Province, southern Iran, workers of the Maad Koush Steel Company went on strike as another sector of the country’s industry joined the nationwide movement.
Truck drivers: Truck drivers went on strike in Tabriz, Qorveh, Marand, Bandar Shapur, Shahreza, Yazd, Saveh, Hamedan, Qazvin, Kermanshah, Yazdanshahr, Kashan, and Rasht terminals. The workers of the Morattab automobile factory started their third day of the strike.
