2.) Weitere Filmberichte von den Demos in Tehran vom Freitag gibt es hier, von den gestrigen Protesten in Shiraz hier … für den morgigen Tag ist wie Ali Schirasi berichtet, eine weitere Protest-Stromausfall während der Abendnachrichten des Regierungssenders um 21 Uhr geplant:

„Am 30. Tir 1388 (21. Juli 2009) um 21:00 soll im Iran das Licht ausgehen. In Gedenken an die Opfer der Unterdrückung vom 30. Chordad (Sa, 20. Juni 2009), zu denen auch die junge Iranerin Neda Agha-Soltan(i) gehört, sollen mindestens drei Millionen iranische Familien am Dienstag, den 21. Juli, Punkt 9:00 zum Ertönen des letzten Zeitzeichens vor den staatlichen iranischen Nachrichten ein stromfressendes Gerät (Bügeleisen, Staubsauger, Fön, Warmwasserboiler) in die Steckdose stecken und für 3 Minuten in Betrieb nehmen. Bei einer Leistung des iranischen Stromnetzes von 3000 Megawatt und einem zusätzlichen Verbrauch von 1000 Watt pro Familie (1000 Watt mal 3.000.000 Geräte macht 3000 Megawatt) dürfte dies ausreichen, das iranische Stromnetz zum Zusammenbruch zu bringen, selbst wenn das Regime, das ja von der Aktion weiß, sich startklar macht, um zusätzliche Anlagen in Betrieb zu nehmen.“

7.) Ein Aufruf der Worker-communism Unity Party zur Bildung revolutionärer Basisstrukturen:

„1. Once again the Iranian society is at the verge of a magnificent and historic development. People have given their verdict to overthrow the Islamic regime and are in the process of doing just that. Any progress of the mass protest movement to overthrow the regime in the most organised and least painful fashion is dependent on the formation of people’s organisations, the councils in the country.

2. One aim of the councils is for people and the workers to seize power. The councils are tools for uniting, organising the revolutionary and libertarian struggle of the workers and toilers in negation of capitalism and the Islamic Republic. Councils are also the organs of uprising against the Islamic Republic. Councils should be formed everywhere, locally and nationally in the neighbourhoods and work places.

3. Councils are the most efficient, suitable and simplest organisation to unite and implement people’s power. They safeguard the direct and consistent intervention of people and must replace the power of Islamic reaction.

4. The working class must build its councils with haste. Councils facilitate the unity of worker’s ranks, their class independence and implementation of worker’s control. Councils provide the possibility of the emergence of the working class as the suitable leading force of the movement to overthrow the regime. Socialist workers must be in the forefront of formation of the councils at work and neighbourhoods.

5. Neighbourhood councils are of great importance at this crucial time. Even the practical experience of recent events has shown that local gatherings and protest organisations are the basic organising force in the protest movement, especially in setting up demonstrations at nights. The control of all areas must be taken over from the Islamic Republic and its suppressive forces.

6. Worker-communism Unity Party calls upon workers and the people to build councils.“

Fourth International: Positive Action and Party Building Among Women (1991)

Posted by entdinglichung - 20. Juli 2009

Positive Action and Party Building Among Women (pdf-Datei, 3,14 mb), ein Dokument der Vierten Internationale aus dem Jahre 1991 (erstmals publiziert im International Marxist Review, Nr. 14, 1992) welches selbstkritisch die Probleme der Organisation und ihrer Sektionen bezüglich der Fragen von Feminismus und Frauenbefreiung und der ungenügenden Überwindung patriarchaler Strukturen in den eigenen Reihen bilanziert. Leider hat diese Selbstkritik nicht immer die erhoffte Wirkung gehabt, der Text selbst ist seither nicht wieder aufgelegt worden.

Homophobe Repression in Honduras

Posted by entdinglichung - 20. Juli 2009

Offenbar scheint die honduranische Rechte die Situation nach dem Putsch auch dafür zu nutzen, die Lage für die ohnehin schon in einem Zustand permanenter Drangsalierung lebenden LBGT-Communities in Honduras weiter zu verschärfen (Quelle: ESSF):

Honduras: IGLHRC Expresses Outrage at Human Rights Abuses After Military Coup

IGLHRC, Press Releases, 07/17/2009

(New York, July 17, 2009) The International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission (IGLHRC) strongly condemns the recent murder and arbitrary arrests of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) activists in Honduras. IGLHRC has learned that these human rights abuses have occurred as a direct result of the military coup on June 28, 2009, which ousted that country’s democratically elected government. The coup was apparently precipitated by now-exiled President Manuel Zelaya’s attempts to amend the constitution and seek an additional 4-year term in office after his original term expired in 2010.

“The recent coup in Honduras is an illegal assault on democracy that violates the rights of all Honduran citizens, including those who identify as LGBT,” said IGLHRC executive director Cary Alan Johnson. “We especially deplore the vicious murder and arbitrary arrests of LGBT people in the wake of this crisis.”

The transgender activist’s murder occurred on the night of June 29, 2009, after she went to work during the military-imposed two-night curfew. She was found dead in the morning of June 30, 2009, one block away from San Pedro Sula’s Gay Community Center, with two gunshot wounds: one through her head and one in her back. Local activists in Honduras claim she was killed by military police patrolling the streets. Representatives from Colectivo TTT/REDLACTRANS have protested the murder.

Five other LGBT activists—Hector Licona, Donny Reyes, Patrick Pavon, Claudia Cervantes and Lizeth Ávila—were arrested, detained and then beaten while in custody on June 29. The arrests occurred while the activists were participating in a demonstration in support of the democratically elected government. All of the activists are well-known public figures, known to be leaders in the LGBT movement.

Honduras has a checkered history on LGBT rights. IGLHRC contributed to a 2006 report about human rights violations on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity in Honduras. The report emphasized that the Honduran government engages in widespread discrimination against the LGBT community. It documented over 200 murders of transgender people and sex workers by state and non-state actors, as well as numerous incidents of police brutality. In 2007, IGLHRC issued an action alert after four transgender people were arbitrarily arrested and physically, verbally and psychologically abused in police custody.

“Human rights and fundamental freedoms are being challenged in Honduras in the aftermath of the coup,” said Marcelo Ferreyra, coordinator of IGLHRC’s Latin America and Caribbean Program. “Under such circumstances, there is always danger for those whose sexual orientation or gender identity does not conform to social norms. We ask for the restoration of democracy and the rule of law in Honduras.”
