Today is May 1st, the International Labor Day, and tomorrow, May 2nd, will be National Teacher’s Day in Iran. Labor activists such as Mansour Osanloo have been imprisoned and prosecuted over the past several years. In an attempt to intimidate teachers and to keep them from demonstrating for their rights, earlier this week members of teachers groups were arrested in Iran. Even so, it appears that there will be some demonstrations in observation of May Day today and Teacher’s Day tomorrow. I will be posting any news I find about this weekend’s events here. Please join me if you find any news. Let’s get the voices of those who are risking their lives and freedom to express their thoughts out of Iran. We are the media.
