Support haft Tapeh workers in Iran

In a drive to destroy the independent union at the giant Haft Tapeh plantation/refining sugar complex in southern Iran, a court on October
12 sentenced six union leaders to prison on charges of "endangering national security."

Their only crime was to lead a strike.

Haft Tapeh workers have repeatedly had to resort to strikes and other actions to claim huge wage arrears and protest deteriorating working conditions.

"The regime is clearly determined to crush the union by putting its entire leadership behind bars," writes the IUF, the global union federation for food workers.

They've launched an online campaign of protest. Please take a moment and send off your messages of protest.

NCTV (New Channel TV) is the Voice of the revolution in Iran!

NCTV, New Channel TV, is the first 24/7 TV station that is run independently by the Worker-communist Party of Iran. It is accessible in the Middle East, Europe, and North Africa. It is also accessible live via the internet.

NCTV broadcasts programmes in Farsi, Turkish, Arabic and Kurdish. Its English programmes currently comprise of TV International, Third Camp TV and Secular TV.

Despite the enormous costs of operation, NCTV is run almost entirely by the public, and through sponsorships. Furthermore, its staff consists entirely of volunteers, whether technical staff or producers.

NCTV is not only the voice of a better world and a TV channel through which people are educated to confront the Islamic regime of Iran, but it is a tool to organise. Workers for example, call directly from their workplace, asking for advice to run their strikes successfully. And that's a routine practice.

NCTV however is always challenged by the financial pressure. Become a fan and/or support NCTV via sponsorship! Your tiny, little help counts and it shortens the life of anti-humane Islamic Republic of Iran.
