Labour activist Khalil Karimi summoned to the Islamic Court

On 28th April 2013,Two days before May day, Khalil Karimi executive board member of the Free Union of Iranian Workers , was summoned to branch four of the Islamic Republic court in Sanandaj city, and put under pressure to resign from his  union and stop his activities for May day gatherings. Khalil rejected all these conditions and stressed on workers rights to organise and celebrate May day. The Islamic authorities want to put him under trial on April 29th for defending workers rights.

We call upon all workers and trade unions around the world to support Khalil Karimi and demand release of all jailed workers in Iran.
