Although the regime’s recent escalations of violence and mass executions lie within the framework of Islamic ideology and the “legal” identity of the regime, they also constitute the regime’s tactical response to a different situation: the Islamic regime’s economic system has crashed. As a result of decades of plundering and theft of the nation’s wealth, and deeply corrupt banking and management systems, underpinned by 34 years of economic and political “governance” by bandits and mafia gangs, the inhuman Western-led economic sanctions have now literally driven the entire working class, in all sectors of production and services – teachers, nurses, the retired, the unemployed: the entire society, the Iranian 99% – to the brink of annihilation.
The Islamic regime’s escalation of the most savage punishments, inflicted upon all from the political opposition to poor and desperate Afghan refugees, through the use of mass executions and public amputations of body parts, are happening while people are literally starving.
This regime has left no other way for people to defend their right to existence but protests and demonstrations and strikes, which are happening every day, all over Iran. People demand bread and the right to live, and the regime is only capable of giving death.
These executions must stop and today we, the people, are in our best position to stop this barbarity: to demand a stop to all executions immediately!
We can do this today. We can press the regime to open the gates to all prisons, to release all political prisoners. We can force the regime to retreat and we can call this our first step towards bringing an end to the reign of a gang of rapists, cut-throats, and pickpockets in Iran.
Join us on Sunday, 2 December 2012, as part of a unified international protest action (link) to demand an end to execution in Iran and worldwide.
