Statement from Workers’ Day Ceremony Council, Tehran

"Without collaboration between our economic demands through the power of our class and  liberal and democratic demands, our protests are will only serve as tools to empower other wings of capitalism. The concept of economic equality and social-political equality is meaningless without one another. This year, on International Workers’ Day we are protesting against poverty, inequality, low wages, unpaid salaries, lack of job security, elimination of subsidies, political and social repression and the suppression of human dignity."
