The call is to show support for the Kurds in Iran.

The Cooperation Center for Iranian Kurdistan's Political parties (CCIKPP), today in a statement called on political parties, activists and civil society groups across Iran to stage a general strike on Thursday to “support the unity and support of the Kurdish people [in Iran].”

The center also asked people to support the anti-government sit-ins, protests and the disobediences , and asked independent media to play its role through covering the events, as Iranian security forces continue to crackdown on protesters.

An incipient group that calls itself "Revolutionary Youth in Iran” also asked Iranians to shut down their businesses and avoid normal life in support of Iranian Kurds that continue to clash with security forces.  

The CCIKPP has deep roots within Iranian Kurds, and has mobilized its supporters during the recent unrest, leading the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) to strike its bases in the Kurdistan region. Iranian Kurds have answered the center’s calls for strikes in Iran and many consider them representatives of Kurds in the Islamic Republic.
