On March 29, 1951, Khuzestan oil industry workers started their strike. After Dr. Mosaddeq nationalized Iran’s oil industry on March 20, 1951, the British Oil Company cut-off workers’ bonuses that led to strikes and protests. A number of workers were killed and wounded during the contentions that erupted several times over the weeks-lasting strikes.
