17 Striking Iranian Truck Drivers Face Death Sentences – Adena Nima (Iran News Wire)

Human rights sources say that more than 300 truckers have been detained during the strike, which has spread to more than 300 cities.
Iranian truckers see the strike as the only way to protest low and unpaid wages and the high cost of parts and tires.
