The Tudeh Party of Iran (TPI) issued a statement on February 26, 2018, greeting the struggle of the workers of the National Steel Company and the working people’s uprising around the country.

Mr. Khamenei, it is you and the rule of the disastrous theocratic regime that are anti-revolution!

  • Greetings to the workers of the National Steel Company in the city of Ahvaz,in their heroic and steadfast struggle, and all the workers and working people of the nation!
  • The Supreme Leader of the theocratic regime should be reminded that the definition of anti-revolutionary is clear.
It is the force that diverted the revolution from the path of its core slogans for freedom, sovereignty and social justice, and which has imposed the rule of a medieval and despotic theocratic regime on the nation.

A joint declaration by communist and workers’ parties expressed solidarity with the Iranian people and the need to stand against any foreign intervention in Iran. (updated signatories)

The protests of tens of thousands in Iran against the policies of the theocratic regime weeks ago faced the the brutality of the security forces.

 Following the uprising, the regime started a harsh wave of persecution against the protestors to intimidate the anger against the regime, especially using 'foreign meddling' as a pretext.

A common appeal of communist and workers’ parties was issued on 19 January with the title, ‘We stand in solidarity with Iranian people, and against any foreign intervention in the internal affairs of Iran’. The parties signing the appeal are being updated.

wfdy 148The World Federation of Democratic Youth express its solidarity and support to the youth, students and people of Iran that are currently in front of repression, violence and oppression by the police and the paramilitaries of their country.

The last two weeks the youth and the people of Iran, have been demonstrating and developed a difficult struggle in the streets of more than 70 towns of the country, for their rights against the economic, social and cultural policies of the regime. Policies which have brought high prices on basic consumer goods, huge unemployment, widespread privatisation and extreme poverty on a mass scale. They are standing against the violations of the regime on the human and democratic rights of the people, on the same time that they oppose the anti-popular policies and conventions against the workers.

tudehThe Appeal of the Tudeh Party of Iran to All Progressive and Freedom-loving Forces of Iran and the World:

A broad campaign must be organised for the release of hundreds of students, working people and freedom fighters in Iran who have been detained by the repressive forces in recent days.

As anticipated, the anti-people and dictatorial theocratic regime of Iran have proceeded to deploy large squads of the Guards Corps, Basij militia and the mercenaries of the security forces to violently repress the protest movement of the youth and working people of our nation. As has been the case in recent years, the response of the heads of the dictatorial regime to the people - who are frustrated by the poverty, deprivation, oppression, corruption and lack of freedom - is to accuse them of association with foreign powers and then fire at and detain them. According to the latest reports received, more than 1500 protesters have been arrested by the security forces of the despotic regime, hundreds have been injured and tens of people have lost their lives during the protests. Yet the popular protests continue across the nation. Tens of militant and freedom-loving students are among the detainees.

The Communist Party of Britain strongly condemns the mass arrests in Iran, now estimated at over 2,000, and expresses grave concern at the reported torture of detainees. The party’s general secretary Rob Griffiths has lodged an official protest with the UK Representative of the Islamic Republic. The British party sends its solidarity to the Tudeh Party of Iran, the country’s party of working people.
