Charlie Weimers, a member of the European Parliament, has said that the EU should create a fund to support Iran's strikes by the blocked Iranian assets.
“One point that I will take to my fellow legislators is the need to support the Iranian labor movement. Many Iranian workers are struggling under almost slave-like situations in IRGC-owned entities… and we need to support them in some way by a strike fund,” stated Weimers.
He was speaking at a press conference with Iran’s exiled Prince Reza Pahlavi, who has been touring Europe to mobilize support for Iran protests.
He further noted that “we have an opportunity to seize the assets of the IRGC abroad…to create a strike fund for Iranian workers to enable the Iranian people to put an end to this regime.”
Weimers went on to say that European leaders should invite Iranian opposition to meet with them to recognize the Iranian opposition and to recognize that there are concrete plans for a transition to a democratic free Iran.
As the protests and calls for strikes continue in Iran, Prince Reza Pahlavi has repeatedly asked the US and the West to form a fund to support the families of the workers who are on strike.
Reza Pahlavi has repeatedly emphasized that the nationwide strikes along with protests will overthrow the Islamic Republic.
