The Teamsters Take to the Streets to Support Iranian Bus Drivers
The mad mullahs of Iran might have finally crossed the wrong group: the Teamsters.
Last week, Teamsters joined protests outside the Iranian Interests Section in Washington, D.C. in support of imprisoned Iranian bus drivers who attempted to form a union. Take a good read of the comments of a leader who doesn't mince words:
“We call on the Iranian government to recognize the bus drivers’ right to form a union,” said Jim Hoffa, Teamsters General President. “We demand that the Iranian government release imprisoned union members and return all fired drivers to work immediately and unconditionally."
The same story was picked up by this Iranian news site.
That's the fighting spirit -- keep it up, Teamsters, and maybe you'll spark some other pro-freedom demonstrations.
