Current Struggles of the Working Masses and Its Short-comings

By • Jul 12th, 2011 • Category: Headline

What we are seeing today, throughout the world, from Tunisia to Wisconsin, From Cairo to Madrid and Paris, From Tehran to Changchun, is the reaction of the workers to the intolerable conditions that have been forced upon them violently by world capitalism, marking a new upheaval of the proletarian mass struggle.
The uniformity seen in these struggles is yet another proof of the above mentioned cause and effect relationship between the world capitalist crises and the upheaval of the struggles of the working masses. These struggles are almost, always fueled and ignited by the unemployed youth, and later, grow to a massive participation of the working masses of all ages and strata. Their initial independence from all type of bourgeois lines and organizations is manifested by its populist forms. No classical parties or trade unions can claim leadership of these struggles. However, due to the absence of a true proletarian line, its organizations and parties, they fall in to anarchy in nature. Which, in return, due to their inabilities to form the structures necessary to gain specific results and protect its achievements, it opens the door to liberal reformists to fill this vacuum.

‘Reformists’ exposed on first anniversary

By • Jul 3rd, 2010 • Category: Headline

As imperialist sanctions are stepped up, leaders of Iran’s ‘opposition’ are in headlong retreat. Yassamine Mather reports on the anniversary of the 2009 rigged elections

Demonstrations were held across Iran on the June 12 anniversary of last year’s rigged presidential elections – despite a heavy security presence and the cowardly back-stabbing of the so-called ‘reformist opposition’.

Meanwhile, the much heralded United Nations resolution on further sanctions against Iran – expanding the arms embargo and barring the country from sensitive activities such as uranium mining – was voted through on June 9. The UN measures present a diluted version of what the US administration had proposed, but they still allow high-seas inspections of vessels believed to be ferrying banned items to Iran, while 40 categories have been added to the list of people and groups subject to travel restrictions and financial sanctions. The European Union has promised to impose its own extra measures, targeting the energy, trade and transport sectors.

Yassamine Mather: A New Left Emerging in Iran?

By • May 5th, 2010 • Category: Commentaries, Headline

The defeat of the 1980s Left was a major defeat. No one single organization has come out of it. However there are places one can show solidarity with. There is a new Left growing in Iran and this Left has less baggage. It is not connected to any of those various old groupings. There are people in exile who will say, “these are our comrades.” But the reality is that this is not the case. Some of the organizations set up, such as The Coordinating Committee to Help Form Workers’ Organizations in Iran, have people who were associations with one or another of those past political organizations, but now they are in a completely new organization, with new ideas, which are much more practical. In this respect there are places to show solidarity but many of them are not expressing themselves in the language of solidarity campaigns and quite a lot of that work is done in Farsi.

Beyond Slogans (Part II): Is a Republic based on Peoples Assemblies only a dream?

By • Feb 24th, 2010 • Category: Commentaries, Headline

On the topic of the Republic of Peoples Assemblies as a form of government, the bourgeoisie tries to present it as an unachievable dream. This is because nobody can deny that this is a democratic system of governance; that is a government that gives every single member of society the means for direct intervention in legislative and administrative rule. Of course considering existence of millenniums of living in class societies, imagining an egalitarian, fair society as a real possibility rather than a dream is very difficult. But fortunately for example democracy of Athena lasted long enough until the time when humanity invented writing and recorded history and, therefore it became recorded as a historical paradigm of such a government.

Sixteenth Message of the Communist Workers of Iran – The outcome of February 11th ceremony of the 31st year anniversary of the Revolution was unpleasant and disappointing for many “leaders”.
