The Union Tavern, 52 Lloyd Baker Street, London WC1X 9AA

I will be performing alongside Attila the Stockbroker, Michelle Madsen, Tim Wells, Emily Harrison, Sam Dodd, Chip Grim & more to be confirmed.

Shahrokh Zamani has been in prison in Iran since 2011, sentenced to 11 years for trade union organising. Shahrokh is part of the paint workers union in Tehran. Reza Shahabi has been in prison since 2010 for trade union organising. He is the treasurer of the Tehran bus workers union. Both have been tortured whilst in jail, resorted to hunger strikes and have medical conditions which require treatment. 

We will be speaking up for Shahrokh and Reza and raising funds for their legal defence and for other trade unionists in prison in Iran.
