Breaking news: Iranian trade union leader freed from prison r1 ... Finally, some good news from Iran.

Esmail Abdi, leader of the Iranian teachers union, has been allowed to leave the notorious Evin Prison.

It is a temporary reprieve from his six-year sentence. He can be re-arrested at any moment.

Nevertheless, it is good news. And it shows the power of campaigning by the international trade union movement.

LabourStart has run several campaigns going back a number of years demanding Abdi's freedom.

Thank you for your solidarity!
