Workers at Iran’s Ahwaz steel factory protested on Sunday for the 17th day in a row in Ahwazi streets and in front of governmental departments, chanting slogans against the regime’s intervention in Syria and against rising living expenses.
Among the slogans chanted were: ‘Leave Syria to its own and think about us’, ‘increased living expenses are the price of participating in the elections,’ ‘death to this deceitful government’, and ‘we are workers not mobs.’
Media reports said workers began their protests from in front of the headquarters of the Khuzestan Province and then headed to crowded areas such as martyrs’ square and the Naderi intersection.
The Ahwaz steel factory was owned by the state and was later privatized following corruption-related issues.
