Special interview by soL with Comrade Mohammad Omidvar, member of the Politburo and Spokesperson of the CC of the Tudeh Party of Iran

ICP, 5 January 2018

soL: What is the context and what are the main drivers behind the current wave of protests in Iran? Can you also comment on the impact of neoliberal economic policies on the current crises?

Mohammad Omidvar: As per our Central Committee's statements over recent days, the Iranian people's protest against the regime has its roots in the deep socio-economic crisis in Iran. The neoliberal policies of the Iranian regime over the past two decades - fully supported and indeed praised by the World Bank and IMF - have pushed millions of Iranians below the poverty line and into a life of hardship un-paralleled in our recent history. Rampant inflation, especially the rise in the price of basic commodities beyond ordinary peoples' means, combined with massive unemployment, especially amongst the youth - which, according to officials in some provinces, is as high as 50% - as well as the continued suppression of peoples' democratic rights and freedom, have pushed our country to the point of this social explosion in anger against the rule of political Islam.

  • The regime’s plots to violently and bloodily suppress the protest movement of the frustrated people must be prevented through an organised struggle and united action.
  • We strongly oppose any kind of foreign intervention in Iran and believe that the right-wing and racist leaderships of Donald Trump, Benjamin Netanyahu and the criminal and reactionary regime of Saudi Arabia, are no friends to the people of Iran and certainly do not strive for freedom, independence and social justice in our homeland.
  • We condemn the deliberate and purposeful attempts of the mass media of imperialist states, as well as the propaganda and news outlets of the Iranian regime, to misrepresent the democratic, patriotic and virtuous characteristic of the current protest movement in Iran
  • The way to save Iran is not to replace one dictatorial regime with another kind of dictatorship and tyranny. Our people are striving for a national, popular and democratic republic
  • The struggle to reject the dictatorial regime of the Supreme Religious Leader in Iran should be progressed with careful organisation. The broad participation of manifold social layers - and particularly the workers and working people - in this struggle, in paralysing the ruling apparatus, would be a decisive factor in forcing the regime to retreat.

Your powerful strikes and gatherings, which have played an important role in the development of the protests of the past few days, can now play a decisive role in the current political climate.

The mass protests which have started throughout the country have rapidly added to the crisis of the Islamic Republic. The balance of power has increasingly shifted in people’s favour and against the regime. Under these circumstances, your strikes will inject new blood to the protests. They will avert the repression against the people and drive the crisis of the regime to its final phase.

  • The broad protest movement of the masses against the dictatorial regime of Iran must be expanded and organised through progressive and national slogans, towards the developing of a united action of various social strata; from the workers and working people to the militant youth, student and women.
  • The Tudeh Party of Iran strongly condemns the brutal suppression of the popular protests by the repressive forces of the regime.
  • The Tudeh Party of Iran, its membership and sympathisers fight alongside the militant people of Iran to abolish tyranny and establish freedom, peace, sovereignty and social justice.
  • The Iranian regime intends to violently drag down the protest movement of the masses and brutally suppress it, just as in 2009

Dear compatriots,

Your revolt in recent days against oppression, poverty, deprivation, injustice and the tyrannical regime ruling our nation, has grown further and has spread to many cities throughout the country. At the same time, in the past two days, we have witnessed the organised violence of the suppressive forces of the ruling theocratic regime who have been sent into the streets to intimidate the people and clamp down upon their legitimate protests. The murdering of a number of demonstrators in the city of Dorood and the injuring of a number of demonstrators in Tehran and other cities, demonstrate the regime’s plans to push the popular protest towards violence, brutally suppress it and drench it in blood.

tudehDear compatriots,

The politico-economic crisis of the bankrupt theocratic regime of Iran is growing and deepening daily. The impact of this crisis can be observed in the internal regime conflicts and the unprecedented revelations of infighting between powerful factions - revealing the depth of corruption and oppression that prevails in the so-called “exemplary system of the world”.

tudehAs had been expected for months, Donald Trump, the US President, announced in a speech on Friday 13 October his administration’s new strategic approach towards the Islamic Republic of Iran. Although Donald Trump was expected to address the issue of Iran's compliance under the JCPOA nuclear deal - that was signed between Iran and 5+1 countries in July 2015 - his words in fact comprehensively redefined the new strategy for the United States in terms of its future of relations with Iran, the balance of power in the Middle East, as well as how the United States will interact with the world including its European allies.

tudehWe reproduce the editorial article of »Nameh Mardom«, Central Organ of the Tudeh Party of Iran, No. 1029, published on 10 July 2017:

At a time when political developments are taking place at a rapid pace in the Middle East while imperialism and the regional reaction are hatching dangerous plans to change the political geography of the region, any kind of conflict and military clash around the borders of Iran - under any pretext whatsoever- will threaten the territorial integrity and stability of the country.

Tudeh Party of IranAs reported by the mass media, about 10:30am local time today in Iran, in a concurrent terrorist act, the area around Khomeini’s tomb near Tehran’s Behesht-e Zahra cemetery and the parliament building in the centre of Tehran were attacked. The statement of the Ministry of Interior Affairs about the terrorist event today reads: “Today, two terrorist teams simultaneously attacked the outskirts of the Late Imam’s tomb and the administration building of the Islamic Majlis [parliament] and tried to disrupt the security of the country by such blind terrorist acts.”
