Churches and Christians’ homes being burnt

Farooq Tariq

Shabir Ahmad, a Labour Party leader at Gojra was able to save the lives of several Christians today with the help of LPP activists when fundamentalists tried to burn the homes of Christians.

Six were burnt alive in one of the worst sectarian clashes in the region. The brave LPP activists reached the area under fire and fought the fundamentalists who were trying to burn more homes.“

„After the first session of reformists trial now hard-liners and right factions in parliament and some newspaper and news sites close to hard-liner demanding for senior reformists such as Mousavi and others to be trialed because they are the main reason of all recent riots and after people like Abtahi who were not as big as Khatami or Hashemi trialed and confessed to their participating in velvet coup now it is their seniors turn to be in court and trial because of their acts.“

Offenbar planen die regierenden Mullahkraten eine iranische Version der iranische Version der Moskauer Prozesse

3.) Iran Human Rights berichtet von der staatlichen Ermordung von bis zu 50 Menschen in den letzten Tagen:

„According to a report, published today by the state run Iranian news website „Borna news“, 24 people were hanged in the prison of Rajaee Shahr, at Karaj (west of Tehran), Thursday July 30.

The report that was quoting Tehran’s vice-prosecutor Mahmoud Salar-Kia, wrote: All the 24 were sentenced to death convicted of drug trafficking, and their sentence had been aproved by the Iranian supreme court.

None of those executed were identified by name.

Mahmood Amiry-Moghaddam, spokesperson of Iran Human Rights, said: We are very concerned about the high number of executions. Number of executions in July are the highest monthly numbers in many years“.

He added: „Most of those executed are not identified by name and we can’t know whether the charges mentioned in the reorts published by the authorities are true. World community must condemn these executions which are meant to spread fear among the people.“

4.) ArbeiterInnenproteste in der Textilfabrik Simin in Isfahan und bei dem Autohersteller Iran Khodro in Karaj, (Quelle: Révolution en Iran):

„- A Ispahan, selon les nouvelles reçues le 3 août, les travailleurs de l’usine textile Simin Isfahan protestent contre les salaires impayés ou partiellement payés qu’ils subissent depuis 6 mois. Selon un travailleur de l’usine, 40% des ouvriers travaillent encore, mais ne perçoivent pas l’intégralité de leurs salaires, et 60% sont au chômage. Les travailleurs, toujours employés ou mis au chômage, ont tenu une assemblée et ont décidé de lutter pour le paiement intégral des salaires et la réintégration des ouvriers licenciés.

– Le 3 août toujours, les ouvriers d’Iran Khodro, craignant des licenciements, ont bloqué les routes à proximité de l’usine à Karaj.“

5.) Aus der iranischen Frauenbewegung:

* Nouveau rassemblement des mères en deuil (Révolution en Iran)

* Release the Children of the Women’s Movement (Change4Equality)

„The activists of the women’s movements have stood beside the people from the first days of the civic and popular protests against the election results, and, united with them, have called for their rights with one voice. They have been present in the rivers of people that surged forth into the streets. They were both in the midst of the crowds in the streets and like all those who were the victims of violence, they stood in the first ranks of the processions. They raised cries of lament in one voice with Neda’s mother. They raised a mighty cry in one voice with Sohrab’s mother, and in unison with all of the black-garbed mourning mothers clenched their fists. During these days, they have not had an independent line from the people, because they have always spoken on behalf of the people, and today it is the people that is speaking on their behalf.“

* Azar Majedi: Iran: A female revolution. A monumental challenge to Islam (Worker-communism Unity Party)

„In the struggle for women’s freedom and equality, the women’s liberation movement transfers the society as well. A society where women are free and enjoy equal status will not tolerate religious tyranny or religious rule. As Marx so brilliantly put it: “the measure of a society’s freedom is women’s freedom.” The women’s liberation movement in Iran is the epitome of this. The high status of the women’s liberation movement in the society and the resilience with which it has carried out an extremely difficult struggle validate this thesis.

Women proved to be a prominent opposition force to the Islamic regime. The first large demonstration against the regime was organised by women and for women’s rights. Khomeini’s ruling on compulsory veiling for female employees gave rise to an immediate protest on the streets of Tehran and some other large cities on 8 March 1979 followed by a week of demonstrations, mass meetings and sit-ins by thousands of women. They managed to inflict the first national defeat on the regime. This was the beginning of a thirty-year tense and hostile relationship between women and the regime.

The Islamic republic was forced to define its main character vis-à-vis the women’s liberation movement. Its ideological and moral war against women has been one of the most demanding battles it had to wage. Women’s issues never left the political scene. Ever since its inception, it had to deal with women’s demands. Many women as well as men have lost their lives or suffered immensely for challenging the misogynist order and for defying the rules of gender apartheid.

By fighting a long and hard battle against the most misogynist political system in the modern history, the women’s liberation movement in Iran has become an impressive and strong force with remarkable liberating potentials. The women’s question proved to be the Islamic regime’s Achilles heel. The irony is that those who the Islamic regime regarded as sub humans, worthy of men’s slaves, have come to the streets and are fighting it tooth and nail. This movement has far-reaching potentials. It would not only liberate women in Iran but also open up a whole new door to women in the region and in societies living under the grip of Islam. The women’s liberation movement has come to haunt the Islamist movement.“

6.) First podcast with Nasser Asqari [workers movement & current situation]! (Revolutionary Road):

„When we face a revolutionary movement, the society as a whole will remain in shock for at least month or two and as result everything gets out of its normal routines. A worker who was preparing itself for a promotion and a pay raise is suddenly facing a complicated situation which anything is possible to occur at any minute which can even be a pay-cut.

Now, after 30-40 days passed the mass demonstrations by people the workers have begin with their protest as well. In general you can’t point out the workers protest since their protest can differ. For example, if the worker class can have an organized demonstration in masses and march to the streets and ask for their unpaid wages the government will be in big trouble.

In Iran majority of events are political, the way people are covering themselves, social attitudes, education and working environments are all fall under politics umbrella and any objection will be consider as political offense. For example, if the workers want to make changes in the factory’s leadership, this demand will be labeled as political demand and will be shut-down right away.

I think the demonstration and protest of workers hasn’t shaped yet, however; the worker class is actively involved in the demonstration, but they haven’t been able to organize mass demonstrations. And the other point, I strictly insist that I do not agree with the statement that the upper-class people are the key members of the recent protests, and the middle and lower-class don’t have any part in it! I believe these are the workers, their children and the people whom marched to the streets and will be benefited the most if the regime collapses. There might be some which would not want to consider themselves as a part of the worker class or ordinary people which is a different argument.“

7.) Iranian Minorities Human Right Organisation (IMHRO) berichtet von einem Bombenanschlag in Ahvaz, der Hauptstadt der arabischsprachigenen Provinz Khuzestan:

„Ahvaz, which has a sizeable Arab minority, has been hit by deadly bombings in recent years. The city – the capital of Iran’s oil-rich Khuzestan province, which borders Iraq and the Gulf – was also rocked by ethnic violence in April 2005. Iran in the past has blamed US and British agents in neighbouring Iraq and Afghanistan for launching attacks on its border provinces with significant ethnic minority populations.“
