Statement by the activists of Workers Left Unity Iran

23-02-2006 13:56

The economic policies of Iran's Islamic rulers, in over two and half decades in power have constantly been in pursuit of the interests of world capital. During the rule of successive presidents each with 8 years of government and under deceptive slogans such as 'period of reconstruction’, 'reform' ... the political economy of the Iranian state has been marked by a faithful obedience to neo liberal economic strategy in accordance with the policies of the IMF, the World Bank and in pursuit of a place in the World Trade Organisation, all this within the framework of a plundering corrupt system.

23-02-2006 13:00

Sixty two years ago, on 23 February 1944, Stalin ordered the forcible deportation of the Chechen, Ingush and other nations of the North Caucasus to Central Asia. The people who were were transported with little or no provision in cattle trucks and more than half died in transit or in massacres committed by Soviet troops. Those who survived the journey were left facing starvation and disease in the harsh winters of Siberia and Central Asia. In 2004 the European Parliament passed a motion formally recognising this tragedy as a genocide.

The 'local' East London Advertiser which circulates mainly in Tower Hamlets has shown that it is as prejudiced and as ignorant of the facts in the community's life in February 2006 as it was a hundred years ago when the cause of democracy and transparency became the hottest local topics. In the almost three years since late 2003 that local people have camapaigned against Crossrail, the East London Advertiser has not been able to publish one report without tainting the facts with ignorance and misinformation.
