In solidarity with the female revolutionary uprising in Iran
For a socialist equality
The mass revolutionary uprising of women in Iran, which is named “female
revolution”, is the most important issue of the day in this year’s international
women’s day. For the first time in countries ridden with Islam, women and men
stood up in their thousands to topple one of the most reactionary and misogynous
regimes in the region. They came out to the streets shouting anti regime slogans
while burning the hijab. This revolutionary movement that emerged 44 year ago
against the then spiritual leader, Khamenei and chanted “No to Islamic hijab”,
and “women’s rights are neither Eastern nor Western, they are universal” was
brutally suppressed. It rose, once again in 2022 and gave hope to all and
received national and international solidarity. It demonstrated the key role
that women play in the struggle to overthrow the Islamic rule.
The main dominant characteristic of this movement in Iran is in its demands for
equality, anti Islamism, and radicalism in words and deeds. This characteristic
belongs to the socialist tradition of 8th March. Today, the socialist resolution
of the question of women is tied with the socialist alternative to liberate the
whole society. Women and men who have been arrested, tortured or killed are
amongst millions of revolutionaries who hate the Mullahs and Islam. They have
come to the streets in their thousands to end the nightmare of the Islamic
Republic. There is no possibility of compromise, there is no way back. The
Islamic Republic of Iran must go!
Worker-communist Party of Iran - Hekmatist fights for the unconditional freedom,
equality of men and women in all aspects of the society. Our policy, and that of
the women’s liberation movement in Iran is to strengthen the secular and
socialist trends that strive for equality and the downfall of political Islam.
Worker-communist Party of Iran - Hekmatist greets the International Women’s Day.
We urge all to commemorate this year’s 8th March in solidarity with the
revolutionary movement and the political prisoners in Iran. We flight for a
socialist equality. Let us raise this flag everywhere.
On International Women’s Day, let us shout out loud and clear “Free all
political prisoners”. Let us paint every wall in universities, institutions and
corners with this slogan. Let us publicise the picture of all those who were
killed in their struggle for freedom. They must not be forgotten. We must not
let the world forget about the crimes committed by the Islamic regime. They must
The necessary condition of abolishing gender apartheid and safeguarding women’s
freedom in Iran is to overthrow the Islamic regime. The complete freedom and
equality between men and women in all aspects is not possible without the fall
of the totality of the Islamic regime, abolishment of wage labour and
capitalism. We are victorious. There is no doubt about it. We will bury the flag
of Islamic Republic and political Islam in Iran. Victory in Iran is the
beginning of serious developments in the Middle East and the isolation of
terrorism and the industry of religion. Taliban, Islamic regimes and the
totalitarian regimes in the region will not rest under the revolutionary wave in
Unconditional freedom of men and women in all aspects in society!
Down with Islamic misogynous and criminal rules!
Freedom, Equality, Workers’ State!
