Despite the ban of gatherings and shut down of the factory announced by regime agents, the workers of the Azarab factory of Arak organized a protest gathering in front of the factory. 


A large group of suppressive forces was stationed inside and outside the factory.  

The workers demanded the release of arrested workers of Sunday protests.  

Their family members of the arrested also gathered on Monday in front of the factory. The regime’s response to the families was throwing tear gas. In support of the families of the arrested, the workers clashed with the suppressive forces that were stationed inside the factory.
