The Only Way Forward

People supporting the striking Bazaar’s on Sunday July 11, 2010

The strike in the Iranian capital’s Bazaar is still ongoing. Merchants at the Tehran Bazaar launched an extensive strike last Tuesday in protest to tax hikes by the Iranian regime. The merchants have yet to receive word from the regime that it will not go through with the tax increase.

Fabric sellers and shoe makers, as well as the Abbas Abad Bazaar and various shops at Amir Kabir continued with their strike on Sunday. The so-called Kuwaitis Bazaar at Sabzeh Square also joined the strike today.

According to obtained reports, in support of the merchants, people staged demonstrations and protest since the early hours of Sunday in front of the Kuwaitis Bazaar and Reza Bazaar situated at Sabzeh Square. Sidewalks were filled with protestors, while a large number had also gathered in front of the police station despite the scorching heat.

Starting at about 10:00 local time, more people joined protests in front of Reza Bazaar. The main door at Kuwaitis Bazaar and the shops were completely closed. Protests were still ongoing at about noon in front of the Kuwaitis Bazaar.   Iran Students Committee, NCRI
