Free Mansour Osanloo

Mansour Osanloo believes that Tehran’s bus drivers deserve a fair day’s pay for a fair day’s work. For that he has been thrown in prison for five years.

Please join us and hundreds of thousands of other people worldwide today who are trying to help Mansour Osanloo, an ex-bus driver beaten and imprisoned for nothing worse than being a unionist.

Osanloo is the elected leader of the Syndicate of Workers of Tehran and Suburbs Bus Company, a trade union founded three years ago. Even though the organisation is free, democratic and legal it has been violently attacked by Iranian security forces. As a result of his work Osanloo has been beaten, arrested and had his tongue sliced as a warning against speaking out. He is now being held in Evin Prison in Tehran, where he is in danger of losing his sight in one eye due to a previous beating.

Osanloo and fellow jailed trade unionists are considered to be prisoners of conscience by Amnesty International. By helping us to campaign for his freedom you’ll be standing up for the fundamental human rights of all Iranian citizens, for the many thousands of people around the world imprisoned for trade union activities, and reinforcing all workers'  freedoms.
