Photo credit: Eric Lee.On Friday 15 June, LabourStart editor Eric Lee interviewed Iranian trade union leader Mansour Osanloo (pictured) at the global headquarters of the International Transport Workers Federation (ITF) in London. The interview lasts two minutes -- the first minute is Osanloo speaking in Farsi followed by one minute of translation into English. To listen to the interview in MP3 format, click here.

In the interview, Osanloo calls on trade unionists around the world to support the embattled Iranian unions with needed equipment such as cameras, printers, copiers -- and money.

Osanloo, the president of the Syndicate of Workers of Tehran and Suburbs Bus Company, was the subject of a LabourStart campaign last year.
