Solidarity Statement on the Uprising of the People in Iran

16 October 2022: ICOG wholeheartedly supports the peoples' uprising in Iran. Starting from the death of the young Kurdish woman Jina Amini, the mass protests in the country do not stop. The people are fighting against poverty, inflation, hunger and oppression, especially of women. Against the state violence and repression of the peoples' uprising, with thousands of arrests and already more than 150 deaths, the struggle is expanding. Since 2021, there have been 4,000 strikes by workers. These workers, experienced in struggle, are organizing, including auto workers and colleagues from the Tehran Bus Drivers Union, who support the International Automotive Workers movement. Long live International Solidarity!
