On November 27, Iran’s top nuclear scientist was assassinated when the car he was traveling in was ambushed in northern Iran. Iranian government officials alleged that the killing of the scientist, Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, was the work of Israel. The Israeli government has issued no statement on the assassination. The U.S., Israel’s main imperialist backer, also has not said anything officially about it. Trump, however, re-tweeted a comment by an Israeli journalist that Fakhrizadeh’s death “is a major psychological and professional blow for Iran.”

Pages upon pages of the life history of the Islamic Republic of Iran are marked by repeated waves of persecution, terror, imprisonment, torture, execution; by firing squads, gallows, and arrows… This history has another side as well: repeated waves of resistance, struggle after struggle: Our struggles.
A call from and to people in the U.S. to join and develop the campaign for political prisoners in Iran right now.
Since October 2020, a new rash of widespread, illegal and illegitimate crackdowns against political and social activists was carried out in Iran by the brutal regime of the Islamic Republic of Iran (IRI). Among those arrested are supporters of labor movements, teachers, students, and family members of known activists, Baha’i religious forces, long-time and recent liberal, radical and revolutionary dissidents against the reactionary IRI.
On Monday, November 23, more than two weeks after Joe Biden was projected to be the winner of the election, the first signs of reckoning with this undeniable reality have come from the Trump/Pence regime, with the Trump-appointed head of the GSA (General Services Administration), Emily Murphy, sending a letter to President-elect Biden informing him that the necessary funds would be released to finance the transition.
If you’ve had a recurring nightmare repeatedly jolt you awake, it can be a problem, indeed dangerous, to not find out where that’s coming from, and work your way through it… For the sources of that terror lie deep and can reassert themselves.
Slavery, Genocide and War!?
What’s there to be thankful for?

A Deadly Serious Attack on HOW People Think…
with Lasting Harm
“We are confronted by, we are now being ruled by a fascist regime. Calling this regime fascist is not an insult, but speaks to the terrible reality…” WATCH THE ENTIRE VIDEO at refusefascism.org
An important message that concisely outlines the dynamics of the struggle around the presidential election. This originally appeared at revcom.us in late September, before the election and Biden’s victory over Trump in the popular and Electoral College votes. The points here are even more relevant than ever.
In response to revelations late Monday night in the New York Times that last Thursday, Trump had to be “dissuaded… from moving ahead with a military strike” against Iran, RefuseFascism.org is holding an emergency protest to demand,
“Don’t Bomb Iran! Trump/Pence Out Now!”
Protesting the threat of war with Iran. Washington D.C., November 17
The New York Times reported today that in an Oval Office meeting last Thursday, Trump “asked senior advisers…whether he had options to take action against Iran’s main nuclear site in the coming weeks.” According to the Times, “A range of senior advisers dissuaded the president from moving ahead with a military strike.” But clearly, this does not mean that the danger of Trump’s launching a war has gone away. The Times cited “administration officials” revealing that Trump “might still be looking at ways to strike Iranian assets and allies…”
The election is over. Biden won. Trump lost. Now he and his fascist regime need to go. Trump, awash in his bitter fascist delusion, has not conceded. Pence, Barr, Pompeo play a preposterous yet deadly game with their hands on the levers of power talking of a “smooth transition to a second Trump term.”
