Along with other peace-loving and progressive forces around the world, the Tudeh Party of Iran believes that no reason or excuse can justify the kidnapping and horrendous murder of the three Israeli teenagers and, naturally, all those who committed this crime must be brought to justice. At the same time, we strongly condemn Israel’s action in the mass punishment of a nation by committing atrocious crimes such as bombarding a village and killing 18 women and children and other Palestinian civilians.
Tudeh Party of Iran strongly condemns the arrest of trade union activists on the International Workers’ Day!
According to published reports, during the May Day celebration the security and repressive forces of the regime, in clear violation of the labour law and international standards, arrested a number of the country’s workers and trade union activists, and took them to detention centers.
Hand in hand for eradicating poverty and deprivation, for social justice and trade union rights, and to intensify the struggle against the despotic theocratic regime of Iran!
The Tudeh Part of Iran strongly condemns this inhuman and savage attack of the regime’s thugs and calls on all human rights and humanitarian organizations as well as progressive forces and parties around the world to raise their voices against these actions of Iranian regime.
(From "Nameh Mardom", Central Organ of the Tudeh Party of Iran No. 939, 27th January 2014)
Parts of Rouhani’s speech at Davos meeting to attract foreign investment in a country that its economy is dominated by financial and non-productive grand-capital are notable, and one of the headlines of Arman newspaper (January 25, 2014) described it very eloquently: “Iran’s red carpet for world’s businessmen”.
Stop Outside Meddling in Ukraine – The People Must Decide their Destiny
The Tudeh Party of Iran (TPI) views with grave concern the recent alarming developments in Ukraine. During the last few weeks the events have taken a very dangerous turn, threatening the stability of Ukraine with the real risk of the country being torn into pieces.
Tudeh Party of Iran joins other progressive political forces around the world in condemning the violence perpetuated by a small sector of the right-wing “opposition” across Venezuela, in an attempt to destabilize the county and prepare the ground for the type of coup carried out against President Hugo Chavez in April 2002.
Like other progressive forces in Iran and world, Tudeh Party of Iran has always regarded with respect and admiration the exceptional and enlightening role of this national activist in defeating the apartheid dictatorship and establishing the democratic republic of South Africa. The central committee of Tudeh Party of Iran expresses its most sincere condolences to the people and progressive forces of South Africa, and particularly the members and leadership of South African Communist Party. We mourn together with the people of South Africa in these difficult moments.
The Tudeh Party of Iran and other progressive forces of the nation, which have been greatly concerned about peace, national sovereignty and the consequences of the mounting sanctions in recent years, are of the belief that this accord would undoubtedly constitute a positive step forward if it were capable of lifting the burden of the devastating pressure of economic sanctions from the shoulders of the working people of Iran, laying the ground for detente and moving the region towards peace and tranquility.
While in recent weeks the international media outlets have been extensively covering the multilateral negotiations of the theocratic regime of Iran with the European countries and the United States, Reuters News Agency published a special report on the amassing of the extensive fortune of the Supreme Leader of the so-called world's "exemplary system's" in the recent years. The report is published at the very same time that even based on the official statistics of the Iranian regime tens of millions of Iranians are facing depravation, poverty and back-breaking economic duress under very difficult socio-economic conditions.
We express full support and solidarity with the struggles of the peoples of the Middle East, and democratic, progressive forces and Communist parties, against repressive and despotic reactionary regimes, for peace, freedom, democracy, national sovereignty and social justice.
