On Tuesday May 5 Shiva Sobhani, a well-known labour activist in Iranian Kurdistan who was arrested on May Day 2009, was summoned by the Communications Guard of Kurdistan province.
The Communications Guard of Kurdistan province questioned Shiva Sobhani about the May Day ceremony and also her membership of the Co-ordination Committee for the Formation of Labour Organisations. She was also asked to give a commitment not to take part in any further labour activities. Shiva refused to give such a commitment.
Hands off Shiva Sobhani!
An injury to one is an injury to all!
