RI Seafarers Condemn Union Oppression In Iran

We are deeply concerned with the critical political condition in Iran and condemn repressive actions taken by Iranian President Ahmadinejad’s authoritarian regime against education and labor unionists fighting for freedom and true democracy in that country…As a predominantly Muslim country, Indonesia should intensify its diplomatic approach to pressurize the Iranian government to release unionists sent to jail without any trial before the court.

Hanafi Rustandi, Chairman of the Indonesian Seafarers’ Association (KPI) and Chair of the Asia-Pacific International Transport Workers’ Federation (ITF), quoted in The Jakarta Post.
