34 Iranian arrested in labor protests in Kuzkhstan province
A total of 34 Iranian workers have been detained during protests in Sous city in Kuzkhstan province in south-western Iran, sources said on Monday.

Dozens of Haft Tepe sugar company were only demanding their rights before they got arrested by Iranian security forces, eyewitnesses said.

Haft Tepe firm had stopped payment of salaries of workers after being privatized, sources said.

Iran is suffering economic deterioration, prices hiking and unemployment which prompted dozens of workers to flock to streets demanding their rights, blaming mullah regime for wasting billions in supporting militants in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Yemen.
