PJAK calls for a general strike in Iran on November 24

The Kurdistan Free Life Party (PJAK) has called for a general strike on November 24 to protest the mass killings of protestors during the anti-government demonstrations in East Kurdistan and Iran.

The popular resistance that began in East Kurdistan and Iran on September 16 marks its third month. Despite the continuous crackdown of the Iranian state, popular resistance is spreading across the country.

The Kurdistan Free Life Party (PJAK) has released a statement regarding Iran's attacks.

“50 protestors were martyred in the past week alone. The support of the Kurdish people, peoples, organizations, trade unions and parties throughout Iran is needed in order to frustrate this cruel plan of the Iranian state,” the statement said.

“We urge all citizens, unions, solidarity blocs, parties and all institutions and organizations across Iran to hold a general strike on November 24 to support the Kurdish people and protect the achievements of the 'Jin, Jiyan, Azadi' (Woman, Life, Freedom) revolution,” the statement added.
