Bus strike & Bloggers

Tommorow there will be a new bus strike in Tehran to ask for liberation of hundreds of their collegues.Otobos1,a blog which covers news about bus sydicate, asked for bloggers' help. About 60 blogs have already announced they would back strike and workers tommorow and they will put bus syndicte's logo on thier blogs.

Iranian bus syndicate movement is the most important workers' movement after revolution.Unfortunatel international media just focused on nuclear question and almost nobody covers news ( exception is Global Voices).

It is fascinating to see how much bloggers are involved with social movements in Iran.Blogs covered news about strike from begining.So afr so good!
