Mahmoud Salehi, a leader of an independent bakers union in Iran's Kurdistan province, was arrested in the city of Saquez along with 6 other union activists and is now in prison. His life is in grave danger because the authorities will not allow him to receive medical assistance. Mahood suffers from chronic kidney disease, and his health is failing rapidly. He has only one functioning kidney and requires dialysis to prevent the other from shutting down. Without treatment, he will die.
There is a demonstration in front of the Iranian embassy in London on Thursday 9th August at 12:00-3:00 pm.
