BASIC POINTS OF ORIENTATION

1. This system of capitalism-imperialism is the source of endless horrors for the majority of people in this country and all around the world, and it is increasingly threatening the very existence of humanity. We are actively working for an actual revolution—to bring down, to overthrow and completely abolish, this whole system as soon as possible and replace it with something radically different and much better, a new society built on an entirely different foundation… Read more »

Statement from OSYAN/REVOLT on the Occasion of March 8:
International Women’s Day

In Iran, after the people’s uprising in December 2017, and especially after the massive rebellion in November 2019, repression has become more widespread and more severe.  Among those targeted by the Islamic regime are women activists, especially those who worked for women’s rights. In large part those are the ones being arrested and are now many of the political prisoners.  Based on the names, places and prison sentences of those arrested, it can be seen that this repression covers all areas of political, cultural and intellectual activities and different localities in Iran. It encompasses environmentalists to labor and women’s rights activists, from oppressed nationalities to religious minorities—from the cities and regions of Tehran and Karaj to Kurdistan, Ahvaz and Azerbaijan … and from the Fars to the minority people of the Kurds, the Arabs, to the Baluchis, etc.  This is not only the continuation of the permanent repression of the Islamic Republic, but also the beginning of a new round of repression.  And in fact, it is a testimony to the battle between the regime and the people.  The regime aims to restore its lost stability in their current fragile hold on Iranian society.

Statement on the Inauguration of Joe Biden

Joe Biden was inaugurated as president of the United States, and Kamala Harris became vice president. This followed months of lies by Donald Trump claiming that he, Trump, had won. And it followed an armed fascist coup—an attempt by forces called forth and led by Trump to overturn the result at its scheduled final certification of the vote on January 6 in the Congress. Biden now has the reins of office. Trump can no longer wield state power to consolidate fascism.

What Gave Rise to the Fascism of Trump…
and Why This Will NOT Go Away

What gave rise to the fascism that brought Trump forward? How do we understand the last election and its aftermath, which climaxed in the fascist, Trump-inspired violent storming of the Capitol and the attempted coup, which was defeated? And what will happen now? It is imperative that everyone who has agonized over the course of these past four years, horrified… Read more »
