Iran: more of the same

The site Streetjournalist reports that April 19 2 men from Zahedan were hanged in the prison of Kerman.
There is still no accurate confirmed information about the men “Fizollah” and “Nazraz” from the Barahouie tribe.
Unconfirmed reports from human rights activists in Baluchestan say that the government relocates execution of prisoners from Baluchestan to prisons in other provinces: (Hormozgan, Khorasan, Kerman, Yazd and etc). This is done to preventing the spread of the news about the executions.

Updated list (pdf in Farsi) with names of political prisoners.

In recent years there was a change in work status from permanent to temporary jobs.
This trend, encouraged by the Ahmadinejad government, not only creates job insecurity, lower benefits and fear for the loss of jobs during protest activity on the part of the workers, it also opens te door to misuse and super exploitation by certain contracting agencies.
Recently several parliament deputies have spoken about this.

Rasoul Herdani, 27, was arrested together with two friends during Chaharshanbe Souri ceremony at Wednesday, march 16 and transported to the detentioncenter at the Shapour police station in Tehran.
Since then his family did not succeeded contacting him. They repeatedly asked at the police and prison, but they got no response.
