Run Hackney Half Marathon For Workers Fund Iran Past

Sunday, June 22, 2014 - London, United Kingdom

Sarah McDonald is running a half-marathon to raise money for Workers Fund Iran.
Workers Fund Iran do excellent work raising practical solidarity with working class people (employed and unemployed) in Iran. Iranians suffer both from the effects of US-led sanctions and the neoliberal and repressive policies of their own regime. These factors combined with the global economic crisis have resulted in intolerable conditions for the mass of people in Iran. Inflation has skyrocketed, unemployment is rife, and even amongst those who have jobs many have to go months without receiving wages. Worker activists who seek to organise to improve their conditions are regularly arrested, imprisoned, tortured and even killed. They deserve our solidarity. Please give generously to Workers Fund Iran.


This will be my first major running undertaking since running Vienna marathon for WFI, 2012... and I have no illusions about the pain in store for me and for the many friends and colleagues who will suffer my endless moaning about it (if not for me, at least make a donation so they don't suffer in vain!). I have talked a few colleagues into running this new half marathon route round LB Hackney for their charities of choice. If you're in London on June 22, why not come along and support us? Make a last minute solidarity donation and take us out for a pint!
