The International Labour Solidarity Committee of the Worker-communist Party of Iran issued the following press release on the Islamic regime of Iran's presence at the International Labour Organisation on June 2:
What are Farzad Kamangar’s executioners doing in the ILO?
Farzad Kamangar, dissident teacher and human rights activist, was brutally executed in early May by the regime in Iran , along with four other political prisoners. The world’s trade unions had long been campaigning for his release, and have vehemently condemned the executions.
People want to know: What are these executioners doing in the ILO? Why does the ILO keep inviting them to its annual conferences year after year?
It’s time to put a stop to this tacit complicity with the regime in Iran . The ILO conference is no place for executioners! This regime should be thrown out of the ILO and the world community.
Show your solidarity with the workers and people of Iran:
· Boycott the regime of Iran ’s delegation at the ILO conference!
· Help kick this regime out of ILO!
Join the rally outside the conference centre (Place des Nations) on Wednesday 2nd June at 1pm.
