Mansfield Road, Nottingham.
With Sam Azad an Iranian socialist based in Nottingham
Let us be clear, Mousavi and Rafsanjani are disgusting pigs, who seek to line their own pockets, and boost their own power. But Ahmadinejad too, even if he has solid support among some sections of workers, is no friend of the workers. This is the regime which has systematically suppressed the trade unions.
On the other hand, those on the demonstration are our people, it is clear from the determination to fight, they understand that the electoral process and it’s result is secondary, is a populist sham, set up by the regime to politically manipulate the masses, that they need to fight for more, for full democratic and human rights.
What the Iranian regime fears most is what we advocate. That the workers, students, women and oppressed national minority activists will link up and begin to reshape society.
