Please see the e-mail below which I received from the Osanlou campaign today:

ILRW – Mansour Osanlou, the president of Tehran and Suburbs Bus Company (Vahed) Union’s board of directors was shortly transferred to a Tehran hospital on October 28, 2007 where he underwent a critical eye surgery last week. Mr. Osanlou was taken back to Evin prison on Friday October 26, 2007 against doctor’s recommendation to remain in hospital in order to receive necessary medical care following his lengthy eye surgery. Mansour Osanlou was kidnapped by security forces and put in jail on July 10, 2007, a few days before a scheduled operation on his left eye. He was denied the urgent medical care since his imprisonment.

Please sign the petition if you have not done so already and tell Ahmedinejad what you think of his imprisonment of this prominent activst:

    Yeah, you say it’s bad that trade unionists get locked up in Iran, but they’re entitled to have a sex change.

    I hope members of the StWC read this and think of the implications for StWC’s craven policy towards the Iranian theocracy

    I somehow doubt it
