|We, together with one voice, commemorate the massacre of 1980s
We shall not let the world forget it.
“I wept in my luminous private, with you
For those who live
And in a dark cemetery I sang with you
The most striking songs
For, the dead this year
Were the most loving living life.””A. Shamloo”The contemporary history of the world is full of the repressions strangulation and brute forces committed by the dictators, oppressors and colonialists. The mass slaughtering and burning of bodies during the World War II by the Nazis; the massacre of the Palestinians by Zionists régime; the killing of the oppositions by thousands after the 1973 Chilean coup; the mutilating and disappearing of more than 30,000 people during the reign of the military Junta in Argentina; the killing of Kurds in Iran, Turkey and Syria by their reactionary and dictatorial régimes and now the killing of the people in Iraq and Afghanistan by the USA and its allies are only a few examples of the endless atrocities committed against humanity.In Iran, systematic crimes were and are common practice of the Capitalist regimes of both overthrown Pahlavi Monarchy and the present ruling regime of the Islamic Republic. Even though the people’s struggle in 1978 resulted in overthrowing the Shah’s repressive regime, but repressions, imprisonment, torture and execution spread wider right after the rise of the Islamic regime from its very inception. The massacre of political prisoners in the 1980s is an example of the many atrocities committed by this regime against humanity. This act of barbarism has no equivalent in Iran’s history and is comparable only to those of the Fascism in Europe.
Today, our task is not and must not be limited to only speaking out and revealing those dreadful crimes committed by this regime, but more important is not to let them be forgotten or be defaced. The Iranian regime and his henchmen are trying to rewrite the history of their crimes in order to divert the attention of the younger generation from their real struggles hence setting the history backward. This project has a very specific aim inside and outside of Iran and is organized and supervised by the regime itself. Abroad, the people who were involved directly or indirectly in the massacres of the 80s, are implementing this project. Their lines advocate “forgetting” and “forgiveness” in order “to conceal” the true history of their crimes. We should not let them succeed.
The progressives and revolutionaries cannot and should not be silent in this matter and must bring it to the attention of people around the world. The Islamic Republic of Iran should be condemned and charged for the “crime against humanity”.
We think the historic roots of these atrocities are so deep in the Iranian society that it has the potential becoming the starting point for unifying the progressive groups in their struggles against the present regime.
A present, inside the middle age type prisons of the Islamic Regime tens of thousands political prisoners, from all societal groups, are jailed: Workers activists, women activists, students and the youth, anybody fighting for freedom, equality and justice. Many non-identified political prisoners suffer from torture and under the danger to be executed.
We intend to commemorate the anniversaries of the atrocities of the dark summers of 1980 and 1987. The periods in which thousands of the political prisoners, men and women, were sent before the fire squads or the gallows to be killed. Their only crime, jailed in the dungeon of the prisons, was saying “NO” to the Islamic dogmas and the régime representing it.
We, the undersigned, would like to commemorate, and urge you to participate as well, the massacre of the 80’s all over the world, by organizing all kind of relevant actions and activities. We wish to be able to coordinate our actions with families of the victims in Iran and be able to reflect the situation of the political prisoners in Iran.
Therein, we invite all organizations, activists and progressives not only be active but, hand in hand, expose the massacre of the 80s and let not history ever forget these atrocities.
