13th day of truck driver strike
These protests have now engulfed 281 cities and towns throughout all 31 provinces
Tens of thousands of truck drivers across Iran continued a nationwide strike on Monday, marking its 13th consecutive day.
Strike of truck and heavy vehicles’ drivers has affected many other sectors of the economy and has put the regime in serious trouble. In particular, more than 90% of goods and passengers are transported by road transport vehicles. The anti-popular policies of the mullahs regime that destroyed the economy of the country have a double burden on drivers of trucks and heavy vehicles. In addition to increasing costs and inflation, these drivers suffer from an increase in extortion of the regime under the excuse of commissions, tariffs, etc.
People from all walks of life, alongside a variety of entities throughout Iran, are voicing their support for the tens of thousands of truck drivers on strike in this very restive country.
ehran’s Bus Drivers Union issued a statement supporting the truckers’ protests.
“We consider this strike as completely just and the drivers’ right to continue their protests. We also condemn any acts of aggression against the protesting truck drivers.”
This union is calling for urgent measures in response to the demands raised by these truckers and taxi drivers and calls on the International Transport Workers' Federation to support these strikes.
A group of road and construction engineers in Tehran issued statement in this regard emphasizing:
Day 10 of nationwide strike by Iran's truckers. These truck drivers are refusing to deliver loads as Iran Protests persist. Workers are often not paid for months. They now realize there's more to be gained by striking. (Footage from Kavar, May 31 via MEK activists)
