Mrs. Maryam Rajavi hailed the oil industry workers who went on strike in solidarity with the nationwide uprising and said that the only way to achieve the rights of workers and toilers is to overthrow the Velayat-e faqih system (absolute rule of clergy), which has brought nothing but oppression, discrimination, embezzlement, and corruption.
