International Worker’s Day celebration in Saqez, KurdistanMay 01, 2010
On may 1, 2010, at approximately 5:30am, a large number of workers moved toward Jaghal Mountain, a leisure hanging place for the citizens of Saqez (a city in the province of Kurdistan).
Around 8:00am, a large number of people also gathered at the mountain to celebrate International Worker’s Day.
First a moment of silence was held for those killed for the freedom of the working class. After, everyone stood up and a poem was read to break the silence.
Activist Mahmood Salehi addressed the crowd for Worker’s Day. An article was read by another activist, followed by a poem titled, “I am a worker.”
A student present at the gathering also gave a speech.
At the end, a nationwide resolution was read and then the people, in an organized manner, returned back to the city.
