Solidarity with the uprising of Iranian people

ICOR resolution, 28 February 2018

There was an uprising, a serhildan against poverty, corruption, discrimination and oppressive policies in many cities of Iran and Rojhilat (East Kurdistan). After the 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 governments in the Middle East do not have a long-term future.

The Mullah regime was carrying out an oppressive and capitalist exploitation order within the country and implementing expansionist and aggressive policies in the region. Especially women are affected by the oppression of their women's rights and their right to life. 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 the masses day by day. And this time, the Iran state ignored the legitimate demands of the people by relating the people's uprising with the contradiction it has with US imperialism.

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

This spark which cooled down for now once again proved that, despite all the cruel state violence, it is possible once again for spreading of strikes and protests all around the country, bringing themselves into beings of women who especially stand at the forefronts of the clashes, of the student movement and the revolutionary movement in Kurdistan. The new quality of the protest movement in Iran consists in being marked by workers' protests.

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!
