In a message from Qezelhesar, he had called for an international labour to protest repression in Iran. 

Shahrokh Zamani was arrested in Tabriz in June 2011 and was sentenced to 11 years in prison, on charges of spreading propaganda against the regime and creating opposition group. The torturers have put him under all kinds of pressure and torture in the past two years and continually moved him to the prisons of Yazd, Gohardasht, Tabriz, Gohar and Qezelhesar.

A number of Gohardasht political prisoners, in solidarity with Shahrokh Zamani, went on hunger strike on Monday and Tuesday April 7 and 8, and demanded unconditional and immediate return of their former cellmate to Gohardasht prison. 

The Iranian resistance calls on human rights organizations and Rapporteurs on Arbitrary detention and torture, labour and trade unions for urgent action to address the tragic situation of political prisoners and labout activists in the mullahs’ regime medieval dungeons.
