Iran, July 18, 2018 Retired bank employees, Kian Tire workers, credit firm clients seeking their savings returned are staging new protests in Tehran & Rasht

Hundreds of retired bank employees in Tehran are staging protests and demanding answers to their requests. These rallies continued on Tuesday and were held outside the Retired Employees Fund.

The protesters were chanting:

“We will return until we get what we deserve”

“We don’t want hollow promises”

“Directors must answer to us”

“Incompetent directors, resign, resign”

 

 

 

In another scene, 200 retired employees of the Kian Tire Company rallied outside the Industry Ministry in Tehran, demanding officials to live up to their promises of periodically paying their retirement pensions. Employees who retired back in 2011 have yet to receive any pensions after seven years, they said.
