Amnesty Action for Jailed Iranian Trade Union Leader

Dear friends,

Jailed Iranian trade union leader Mahmoud Salehi is facing an acute medical emergency and Amnesty and the international trade union movement are coming together to press the Iranian authorities to release him or protect his health.

The Amnesty UK hosted online web action for Salehi is now live at

Please circulate this as widely as possible and create links from you websites - we hope to repeat the success of our joint action in October for Mansour Ossanlu and will keep you updated (as far as holiday permits) of progress....

You can read our full e-comm sent to 40,000 Amnesty activists today here:

We will be circulating this to further networks in the period ahead.

We have also completely updated our Iran Trade Union Action pages at:

On these pages you can find other actions, including how to send a message of hope to Salehi and Ossanlu and their families.

Please ACT NOW
