Ahwaz, Telecommunication Brokers

Rural telecommunication workers staged a protest in front of the regime’s General Directorate of Cooperatives, Labor, and Social Welfare in Khuzestan Province to protest what they call the non-full implementation of the rural brokers’ contract.

Before that on Sunday, teachers protested the poor economic situation and the lack of attention to their economic and livelihood problems, in front of the parliament and the program and budget organization office.

Teachers chanted at the rally: ‘Teacher shout, shout your right’, ‘Our salary is three million, the poverty line is 10 million’, ‘Where are the radio and television, our salary is in the air’, and ‘We will not go anywhere until we get our right.’

They held banners and placards written on them; multi-job teachers to escape poverty. A dynamic society equals the removal of concern for the teacher’s livelihood.
