On September 13 jailed Iranian trade unionist and socialist Shahrokh Zamani was found dead in his prison cell.

As well as being a tragedy, Shahrokh’s death was a blow to workers’ struggles in Iran and internationally – and a reminder of the need for continued, and intensified, solidarity with the Iranian working class.
