According to the paramilitary Basij force linked semi-official news agency in Iran, the Iranian regime's officials from different organizations and institutions have refrained to appear in front of demonstrating workers and people to answer their demands or to even respond to the needs of striking communities and sectors of the society.
The chaotic and confused economic situation which has been the direct result of incalculable plunders by the regime officials, especially by government elites and the incompetency of the persons in charge have resulted in the closer of almost all industrial sectors and the soaring unemployment amongst workers. These workers are already living under the poverty line and once out of jobs their only source of income which would enable them to live would vanish.
According to the news agency, the suffering people 'have so far taken part in many sit-ins and protest gatherings in front of the governor's office in the city of Yazd, central Iran. Among the protest gatherings in recent days, the chicken producing industry, truck drivers and company employees have been most noticeable.
But the officials in the city of Yazd have refrained from appearing in person to answer their grievances despite calling themselves as labor supporters and those who defend the rights of workers. They didn't even bother to step out of their offices and to hear what those hundreds of people have to say.
