Joint Statement of 48 Communist and Workers' Parties on developments in Iran

In Solidarity with the struggle of Iranian working people

We have followed with concern the important developments in Iran over the recent months. We express our solidarity with the communists, the members and the friends of Tudeh Party of Iran, the working people who struggle for the people’s social and democratic rights, for democracy and social progress.

We condemn the repressive policies and measures that under the responsibility of the Iranian government and the security authorities have led to the death at least 8 people and the arrest of more than 1000 fighters of the popular movement. There are reports that a number of those arrested during the recent protest demonstrations are to be executed. Amongst those detained are well known activists of the women, students and workers movement.

We demand a halt to execution of political prisoners, the immediate release of the arrested people and generally the political prisoners who struggle for the people's interests.

At the same time we explicitly reject every attempt to take advantage of this situation for the escalation of the imperialist intervention in the region. In any case it is only the Iranian people who have the right to determine the future course of their country themselves.

The development of the anti-imperialist struggle in the region with the labour movement at its forefront constitutes a prerequisite for the repulse of the imperialist plans and every attempt of the bourgeois forces to manipulate the people so as to bring about positive changes in favour of the people.
