ILNA reports:
The last one who saw Hasan Hasani was one of his colleagues. Together with other workers they had gone to Kanaf (hemp) Factory in the morning to stop the evacuation of production machines but they faced the police. After they were beaten by anti-riot police they went to protest at the provincial governor's building. They were scattered by the police again. Then Hasan asked his coworker for some money. "He didn't even have a coin in his pockets." His coworker didn't have more than 500 tomans (less than $1) either. They shared the money. "He said don't count this as a loan. I didn't pay attention to what he said. We had been beaten since morning and just wanted to go home with our tails between our legs. He asked, they took the machines too, so is that it? I said, you saw what they did." He wanted to hear it from someone else that the little glimmer of hope to return to work had been destroyed. "No machine, no work. He knew, poor man! He took a cab with the money to go to the factory faster." At 1pm they found Hasan Hasani dead hanging from a rope in an abandoned factory. His eyes were white and his teeth had cut the tip of his tongue. The factory security who found him said, "he had tightened the noose so strongly I had to cut the rope to bring his body down." Such was his determination to go.
He had not received his wage of less than $200 a month for 11 months.
