The adventurous operations, on the night of Friday 15 July, of part of the armed forces of the Turkey in an attempt to carry out a coup d’état against the government of the Justice and Development Party (AKP), and its aftershocks over the past three days have driven the country into a critical and dangerous situation.
Tudeh Party of Iran strongly condemns and denounces the terror and criminal attack in Nice, and its perpetrators, whose victims were the ordinary French citizens and particularly the children. Tudeh Party of Iran expresses its sympathy and empathy with all the victims of this horrendous tragedy, and extends its condolences to the French nation, the working people, and the progressive forces of France.
Dear comrades and friends,
We salute your courageous struggle, which has captured the imagination of people not only in France but in the whole of Europe and beyond. The youth and those campaigning for change in Iran are also following the development of your protest. Your struggle continues in the footsteps of recent campaigns - in Greece against the Troika, the Indignados movement in Spain and the Occupy movements in New York, London and Frankfurt opposing the rule of banks and bankers in the ongoing crisis of capitalism since 2008.
Chers camarades, cher-e-s ami-e-s,
Nous saluons votre lutte courageuse qui a capté l’imagination des gens, non seulement en France mais partout en Europe et ailleurs. Les jeunes et ceux qui font campagne pour des changements en Iran suivent l’évolution de votre mouvement. Votre lutte continue dans le sillage des campagnes récentes - en Grèce contre le Troïka, les Indignados en Espagne, le mouvement Occupy à New York, Londres et Francfort qui depuis 2008 font opposition à la dominance des banques et des banquiers dans la crise du capitalisme en cours.
In a statement earlier this week, the Central Committee of the Tudeh Party of Iran announced the passing away in Tehran of Comrade Dr Hashem Beni Torofi, a leading member of the Party and its Central Committee and a former political prisoner. He was an Iranian Arab from the Khuzestan and always stood true to his roots: an Iranian, an Arab and a revolutionary.
The Central Committee of the Tudeh Party of Iran has received the shocking news of the violent suppression of the student uprising in Khartoum against the sale of the historic public buildings of the only national university in the country to private businesses tied directly or indirectly to the dictatorial and reactionary government of Al-Bashir. Privatization of public property constitutes a major element in the IMF’s prescription for under-developed and developing countries in which right-wing, reactionary regimes are in power.
The elections of the Islamic Majlis (parliament) and the Assembly of Experts [of the Leadership] in Iran wrapped up with participation of about 60% of eligible voters. The mass media affiliated with the despotic regime and security apparatus claimed the 60% participation of the people in the elections as a positive response to Khamenei’s call [to vote] and allegiance of the people with the Islamic Regime, and the pro-reform media, too, claimed the victory of the reformists in both elections.
On Friday 26th February, Iran will witness an election which has been dubbed as “crucial and important” by Ali Khamenei, the Supreme Leader [of the theocratic regime], as well as by all of the regime’s factions, who have deemed the people’s participation in it to be essential. The voices of this spectrum are calling on the people to take part in an “election” in which the candidates are hand-picked by the Guardian Council, and the prerequisite for the candidacy was to express full loyalty to the current political regime, i.e. the theocratic dictatorship and its macro policies.
After years of destructive sanctions which have been imposed on our nation by Western States as a result of the ill-advised policies of the Supreme Leader [Ayatollah Khamenei] and his appointees, on Saturday January 16th 2016 the negotiations between Iran and the 5+1 group were concluded and, after verification by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) that Iran had fulfilled its commitments, the implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), and the fulfillment of the commitments of other parties to the Plan, began.
The Tudeh Party of Iran deems the escalation of the tensions between Iran and Saudi Arabia to be against the interests of the people of
Iran and the region.
From "Nameh Mardom", Central Organ of the Tudeh Party of Iran No. 978, July 27, 2015
The disastrous and humiliating failure of one decade of irrational policies of the Supreme Leader of Iran in creating tensions in the region and wasting hundreds of billions of dollars of the national wealth in nuclear “enrichment” program, and rhetoric like “the resolution of the Security Council is blessing” for us, and also devastating policies such as “resistance economy” which led to the destruction of the nation’s infrastructure, grave impoverishment and destitution of tens of millions of Iranian people while the heads of the regime and the Guard Corps and their inner circle got richer and richer, will undoubtedly have dire consequences for the leaders of the regime and the future of the dictatorship rule which will be worrisome for the ruling dark-minded regime in Iran.
DISASTROUS FAILURE OF MORE THAN A DECADE OF
ADVENTURIST AND DEVASTATING POLICIES OF
THE THEOCRATIC REGIME OF IRAN
