Around 30 people gathered on November 28 for an evening of poetry and spoken word performances in commemoration of Shahrokh Zamani and in solidarity with all jailed labour activists in Iran. As with the similar fundraising evening on January 10, this event was organised by Janine Boothe and Alliance for Workers’ Liberty (AWL).

Around 150 contract workers at Iran Marine Industrial Company (SADRA) in Bushehr, southern Iran, stopped work and gathered in front of the contractor’s office to protest over five months’ unpaid wages.

Contract workers in phase 13 of Asaluyeh began their protest in their dormitory on November 12.
