Solidarity with the uprising of Iranian people

MLKP Turkey/Kurdistan, January 2018


There happened an uprising, a serhildan against poverty, corruption, discrimination and oppressive policies in many cities of Iran and Rojhilat (East Kurdistan). After 1988, 1999 and 2009 protests, people went out on the streets for the first time with such large scale actions and shouted out radical slogans against the religious leader Ali Hamaney. Besides the economic demands, hundreds of thousands of people filled the streets with the demand of political freedom and showed once more that corrupted and rotten dictatorships come to end in Middle East.

Mullah regime was carrying out oppressive and capitalist exploitation order within the country and waging expansionist and aggressive policies in the region. Although it is trying to legitimize these policies through religious discourse and propaganda of national unity, it is losing its credibility in the eyes of masses day by day. And this time, colonialist Iran state ignored legitimate demands of people by relating the people's uprising with the contradiction it has with the US imperialism.

Just in the previous weeks, people of Başûr (South) Kurdistan had not left the streets for days against corruption, poverty and degenerated rotten oligarchic government and organized actions which aimed firstly Barzani and then all the other political parties sharing the power. And now, East (Rojhilat) Kurdistan is resisting against regressive and colonialist rotten Mullah regime in from Kirmanshah to Mahabad.

This sparkle which cooled down for now once again proved that, despite all the cruel state violence, it is possible once again that spreading of strikes and protests all around the country, bringing themselves into beings of women, which especially stood at the forefronts of the clashes, of student movement and revolutionary movement in Kurdistan.

In order not to hand over the struggle of people for freedom, independence and social justice to the regressive opportunists, starting from all the revolutionaries of Iran, peoples of the region and all the revolutionaries of the world should support the uprising and serhildan and raise the struggle against thieves and dictators by standing side by side.

As communists, revolutionaries, progressives and consistent anti-imperialists, we support the uprising in Iran and serhildan in Rojhilat!

We continue to uphold the flag of labor against capitalist exploitation, of women's liberation against patriarchy, of national equality and independence against colonialism!
