Bazaari’s go on strike in Tehran, Mashad, Shiraz, Nayshaboor, Sabzevar and Torbat Heydariyeh

Reports from Mashad say that the gold-sellers’ bazaar in Mashad has been on total strike on Thursday September 23 and on Saturday September 25.

Also on Saturday gold-sellers in Nayshaboor, Sabzevar and Torbat Heydariyeh went on strike.

As the strike began in Mashad on Saturday regime’s suppressive security agents called the sellers threatening them to break their strike.

Bazaaris say that the strike will continue until tax law changes.

A number of other merchants other than gold sellers also joined this strike.

These merchants have stated the reason for their strike as an increase of value added tax.

According to another report, a shop owner in the Edam Square said, “The malls and stores were blocked with bricks and store owners were not allowed to sell anything. They said they closed the shops because they had not paid their taxes. This measure has angered the merchants”.  

Also, the protest gathering in Sabze Maiden horrified the regime forces because this place and Tehran’s Great Bazaar witness the presence of tens of thousands of  people who always refer to these places for shopping, and regime is worried about the effect of the strike and the protest gathering on these people.
