Stellungnahme der Gewerkschaft der Vahed-Beschäftigten Tehran zu den Protesten im iran

Posted by entdinglichung - 19. Juni 2009

Ein Statement der u.a. von dem inhaftierten Mansour Osanloo geleiteten Gewerkschaft der Beschäftigten der Tehraner Busgesellschaft Vahed vom gestrigen Tage, Quelle: Justice for Iranian Workers

Vahed Syndicate – Any Suppression or threat of civil liberty condemned

18 June Statement

Any Suppression or threat of civil liberty condemned

In line with the recognition of the labour rights, we request that June 26 Action Day – Justice for Iranian workers – to include the human rights of all Iranians who have been deprived of their rights.

In recent days, we continue witnessing the magnificent demonstration of millions of people from all ages, genders, and national and religious minorities in Iran. They request that their basic human rights, particularly the right to freedom and to choose independently and without deception be recognized. These rights are not only constitutional in most of the countries, but also have been protected against all odds.

Amid such turmoil, one witnesses threats, arrests, murders and brutal suppression that one fears only to escalate on all its aspects, resulting in more innocent bloodshed, more protests, and certainly no retreats. The Iranian society is facing a deep political-economical crisis. Million-strong silent protests, ironically loud with un-spoken words, have turned into iconic stature and are expanding from all sides. These protests demand reaction from each and every responsible individual and institution.

As previously expressed in a statement published on-line in May of this year, since Syndicate Vahed does not view any of the candidates support the activities of the workers’ organizations in Iran, it would not endorse any presidential candidate in the election. Vahed members nevertheless have the right to participate or not to participate in the elections and vote for their individually selected candidate.

Moreover, the fact remains that demands of almost an absolute majority of the Iranians go far beyond the demands of a particular group. In the past, we have emphasized that until the freedom of choice and right to organize are not recognized, talk of any social or particular right would be more of a mockery than a reality.

The Syndicate of Workers of Tehran and Suburbs Vahed Bus Company fully supports this movement of Iranian people to build a free and independent civil society and condemns any violence and oppression.

In line with the recognition of the labour rights, the Syndicate requests that June 26 which has been called by the International Trade Unions Organization ‘Day of action’ for justice for Iranian workers to include the human rights of all Iranians who have been deprived of their rights.

With hope for freedom and equality

Iran Khodro im Streik

Posted by entdinglichung - 19. Juni 2009

Die ArbeiterInnen des Iran Khodro-Werkes (grösste Autofabrik des Landes) sind offenbar in den Streik getreten (Quelle: Indymedia UK):


Both Shifts at Iran Khodro on Strike Now!

Workers from Iran Khodro have come out on strike against repression.

First news of workers strikes in protest at the current situation, Iran Khodro car (car plant) workers have issued a statement : they condemn the repression and say what we are witnessing is an insult to peoples intelligence . Both shifts are on strike. We should welcome this move by one of the most combative sections of the Iranian working class. Workers at Iran Khodro have been in many struggles against the management and the state, for this their leaders have been imprisoned, tortured, sacked and killed.

Statement der Kommunistischen Partei Iran zu den Protesten

Posted by entdinglichung - 19. Juni 2009

Quelle: Webseite der CPIran, ansonsten hier noch der Hinweis auf die im allgemeinen relativ informative Berichterstattung des Guardian zum Thema, weitere Beiträge zu den Kämpfen im Iran auf dieser Webseite unter https://entdinglichung.wordpress.com/category/iran/


Communiqué of Central Committee of Communist Party of Iran

On Current Protests in Iranian Cities

Workers, liberated people of Iran

The regime of Islamic Republic is facing one of its most extensive political, economical crises of
its 30 years existence. The extent and dimensions of this crisis has clearly manifested itself in: inflation
and unbearable high costs, unemployment in millions, successive bankruptcies of production centers and
industrial firms, international isolation, growth of social movements and mass protests, an intensification
of differences amongst the ruling class.

By augmenting the position of Pasdaran Corps within the state, the dominant faction is aiming to
by pass this crisis through a harsh military dictatorship, and thus guaranteeing the survival of Islamic
Republic. In pursuit of this goal, by utilizing and organizing military-security forces, by playing a behindthe-
scene role in the election scenario, the regime once again pulled out Ahmadinejad from the boxes. At
the moment the dominant faction is going through the last scene of the election scenario; with the aid of
Martial Law and assistance of various government sectors, public television and radio, and other
publications and media outlets, it is turning the presence of those very social strata it draw to ballot boxes
to a reserve for their own suppression.

Now, social strata and groups disillusioned and regretful from participating in the election are
next to folks who have always been disgusted by the regime’s existence in its totality, turning streets of
Tehran and other major cities of Iran into a space for protest against Pasdaran Corps’ electoral coupe.
Security forces are beastly attacking protesting, angry masses. Universities, streets and various squares in
Tehran and other cities in Iran have turned into stages of an unequal conflict between empty handed
masses, and the regime’s security forces armed to teeth.

The people who went to ballot boxes influenced by: demagogy and deceitful campaign
commercials of regimes leaders, government reformers, Western press, and that section of bourgeois
opposition supporting the regime, shall not repeat their historical mistake in another form by following
Mussavy, Korubi, or Khatami. These executives of the regime have always been a constant pillar of
Islamic Republic’s 30 years of existence, and have participated in every crime committed by the regime
against the people. Now that Mir Hossain Mussavy advises people to chant “Allah o Akbar” at night from
their rooftops, people should know that for 30 years bat-wielding thugs of Ansar Hezbollah have been
attacking protesting workers, women, students, and the revolutionary movement in Kurdistan while
chanting “Allah o Akbar,” under the guidance of these very same gentlemen. The chant of “Allah o
Akbar” is a symbol of theocratic state and as such a manifestation of utter lack of most basic human rights
for Iranian people.

Government reformers have never had the inclination, credentials, or the ability to lead Iranian
people’s just struggle, and they never will. Masses shall not be turned into a reserve force for settling
accounts by candidates that lost to Ahmadinejad. Masses shall not follow their reactionary slogans.
It is imperative for the people to participate in the struggle with their own slogans and demands;
demands which stem from their real everyday lives and needs. They should choose such slogans and
demands which, if implemented, will jolt pillars of the state and function as a genuine prospect in
people’s lives.

The people shall turn the demands for; separation of religion from state, unconditional political
freedom, freedom for all political prisoners, guaranteeing of complete equality between women and men
in every single aspect of social life, abolition of forced covering for women, freedom to create workers’
organizations, cost of living adjustment, guaranteeing of personal freedom, elimination of national
oppression, abolition of death penalty… into slogans for their struggles and protests.

Labor movement and other vanguard social movements should organize their ranks through
struggles for attainment of these demands. Overthrowing of Islamic Republic and actualization of social
revolution goes through this path. Party activists socialist vanguards are required to actively engage in the
current situation and take these orientations into the midst of people’s protests.

Down with Islamic Republic
Long live Freedom, Equality, Workers State
Long live Socialism
