Iran News Alert

Shop owners hold strikes across Iran for second consecutive day on October 9; continuing strike actions and resultant business disruptions expected over the coming days

TIMEFRAME expected from 10/10/2018, 12:00 AM until 10/17/2018, 11:59 PM (Asia/Tehran). COUNTRY/REGION Iran


Shop owners are holding strikes for the second consecutive day in several Iranian cities - including Tehran, Tabriz, Isfahan, Sanandaj, and Kermanshah - on Tuesday, October 9. Bazaar merchants have closed their shops throughout the country, contesting deteriorating economic conditions, and have threatened to continue the strikes if their demands for improved economic conditions are not met. Further strike actions and consequent business disruptions are to be expected in these cities over the coming days.


These strikes coincide with a general strike held by Iranian truck drivers throughout the country since the end of September. Over 20 truck drivers have reportedly been arrested since the movement began.


Individuals in Iran are advised to monitor developments to the situation, expect resultant business disruptions, avoid all protests and demonstrations as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities and their home governments.
