RMT activists show support for Shahrokh

Recently a number of high-profile trade unionists and activists have put their weight behind the campaign.

One activist, formerly an executive officer of the Rail, Maritime and Transport workers union (RMT), Janine Booth, speaking to the Free Shahrokh Zamani Campaign said: 

“Every trade unionist in the world needs to take a stand for every trade unionist in the world who faces repression and persecution. An injury to one is an injury to all.”

Other recent signatories include:

Peter Pinkey, RMT National President

Mike Sargent, RMT Executive, South East region

Nick Quirk, RMT Executive, South West region

Derrick Marr, RMT Executive, London and Anglia region

Janine Booth, RMT Executive, London Transport region

Sean Hoyle, RMT Executive, Wessex region

Glenroy Watson, Chair, RMT Finsbury Park branch
