El Militante, the Spanish section of the International Marxist Tendency (IMT), invited a speaker from the Iranian Workers’ Solidarity Network (IWSN) to give a talk on the recent events in Iran, particularly the fraudulent ‘election’ and its aftermath. Amin Kazemi, the International Secretary of IWSN, took up this offer of El Militante and travelled to Spain in late September.

The following two reports were sent to us by IWSN activists in Sanandaj, Iranian Kurdistan.

One thousand workers have been on strike for five months in the Tanta Linen company in Egypt. We have received an appeal for solidarity please take up this case in your trade union or workplace.
