Help Needed

Below is an urgent appeal from Labour Start to take action via Amnesty International to seek help for the oppressed Iranian trade unionist Mahmoud Salehi -

"We've given considerable coverage over the last few months to the jailing of a number of independent union activists in Iran, including Mahmoud Salehi. Salehi's health has worsened in recent days and Amnesty International is calling for urgent messages to be sent. As this is the holiday season for many of you, it is a difficult time to get people to respond to appeals (many of you will not see this message until January) -- so please, if you are reading this, give your support to Amnesty's appeal now."

This is the link that enables you to find out about Mahmoud Salehi and to act on his behalf.
