It has been evolved to a growing political concern partly due to droughts, which residents of affected areas and analysts rightly believe, it has been exacerbated by state officials’ mismanagement.

Human Rights Abuses Continue

By Staff Writer

At the weekend, a spokesman for Iran’s judiciary said that the country’s security forces will confront the public unrest that has been simmering for several months.

In recent weeks there have been ongoing protests with regards to labour rights and laws. Truck drivers and teachers are among those that have taken to the streets.
