Hunger-striking Reza Shahabi starts to drink water

Jailed trade union leader Reza Shahabi who has been on hunger strike since Saturday 4th December, is reported to have started to drink water. The news comes from Reza's brother, Hasan Shahabi, who was speaking on Sunday to US-based Farsi-language radio station, Radio Farda. Reza reportedly agreed to end his dry hunger strike after a plea by a number of labour and other activists in Iran. According to Hasan Shahabi, Reza was transferred to the prison's clinic on Saturday.

The campaign to free Shahabi and other jailed workers continues.
