INU - Bijan Namdar Zanganeh, Iran’s Minister of Oil, has said that Tehran is trying its hardest to continue selling oil. During an interview earlier this week, Namdar Zanganeh said that the regime is working “day and night” to find ways in which it will be able to sell its crude oil.
The Trump administration has been taking efforts to get Iran’s exports of oil down to zero – a move that the Iranian regime describes as “psychological warfare”. However, President Trump has explained the move, insisting that it is part of the U.S. tactic to cut the regime off from the large sums that it uses to fund terrorist groups and activities.

This labor activist along with several other workers were arrested in March 2019 in Jahan Nama Park in Karaj. They were released after 15 days on bail.
INU - Majid Assadi, political prisoner in Gohardasht (Rajai Shahr) Prison in Karaj city, is suffering from several diseases, including endocrinology, and digestive, vision and spine problems.
The prison's physicians have prescribed him special medical treatment in the hospital in specified periods, but the prison’s officials have caused obstructions and prevented him from going to the hospital. If this condition and inattention of the prison officials to his problems persist, Assadi risks turning blind.
