“Leave Syria and think about us,” that’s what steel Ahwazi workers chanted in their 17th day of striking in protest of high prices, lack of purchasing power, and government corruption.

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.’
