Dear Comrade Janine,

We heard with great concern about your breast cancer diagnosis. We hope that your treatment goes well and that you have a speedy and full recovery.

Your Sonnet for Shahrokh and Reza was a unique act of solidarity, full of rage and concern, and ending with hope. That is how we feel about your cancer.

We know that you are a class fighter who will soon be back fighting the Tories, capitalists and managers.

In solidarity,

Iranian Workers’ Solidarity Network (IWSN)
