Perspectives Counter: Left-Wing Perspectives in Iran.

Since September 2022, the struggles in Iran have become visible worldwide under the slogan “Woman, Life, Freedom”. The women’s struggles against patriarchy and for a self-determined life continue under the most dangerous conditions. Chemical poisoning has been spreading in Iranian girls’ schools for five months. The prisons are full of activists, hundreds have been executed. The Islamic Republic has existed for over 40 years. In 1979, the Shah was overthrown in Iran. The revolution was driven by left-wing, secular and Islamic currents. In the course of 1979, the Islamist forces around Khomeini consolidated their power.

Left-wing Iranians stress that a socialist alternative must not side with the Iranian regime or with imperialist interventions.

We have invited representatives of Prison’s Dialogue to shed light on the historical development since 1979 and to analyze the current situation in Iran.

@lrwsf1 3 days ago (edited)Interesting how she’s saying that Gaza should be self sufficient when America is giving Israel BILLIONS in aid. Israel should be as self sufficient too on a bigger scale. The hypocrisy is staggering.
