Iran: more

Tuesday the trial of Omid Kokabee started, he is an Iranian student at Texas university who was arrested on charges of “relations with a hostile country” and receiving "illegetimate funds".
He denies all charges. He was arrested in February on the airport as he was returning to the U.S. after a short break in Iran.
The charges are punishable with 10 years in prison.Link

In September the strikes in the whole country of Iran increased.
In Mahshahr Bandar Imam Petrochemical complex 6500 workers began a new round of strikes following their strike in March.
They had demanded the elimination of the intermediary subcontracting companies and the signing of collective contracts with the management.
On paper, the management has supposedly committed itself to eliminate these firms, but it still has to be implemented.
