Tudeh Party of Iran: Threat of war, theocratic regime and “anti-imperialism”

“… to defend the theocratic regime in Iran as a force for anti-imperialism is, at best, naïve - and, at worst, deliberately relegates the brutal repression, crushing poverty, and socioeconomic misery suffered by the absolute majority of the people of Iran as inconsequential or unworthy of consideration…”

The world has well and truly entered a dangerous epoch, with humanity currently facing a series of interconnected existential threats.

The war in Gaza and the stance of the communists

By Nikos Mottas.

The slaughter in the Middle East didn't begin on October 7. Last weeks' developments have been in gestation in the womb of a colossal injustice experienced by an entire people. The Palestinian people.

The reality is one and indisputable: The occupation of Palestinian territories by the Israeli state and the absence of an independent, sovereign Palestinian state are the source of the evil, which has been perpetuated since 1948, thus leading to millions of victims and displaced people.

KKE: Mahsa Amini's murder is the tip of the iceberg of the blatant social discriminations against women

In a statement about the murder of 22 year-old Iranian woman Mahsa Amini and the popular mobilizations in Iran, the Press Office of the CC of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) points out:

"We denounce the Iranian regime for the brutal murder of 22 year-old Mahsa Amini by the religious police in the name of “indecent clothing”, as well as the repression against popular mobilizations. The heinous crime is the tip of the iceberg of the blatant social discriminations experienced by women in education, family, even in their clothing features, which have as a basis and starting point outdated and reactionary perceptions concerning woman's position in society. 

Protests in Iran following the death of Mahsa Amini — Tudeh Party's statement

Statement by the Tudeh Party of Iran on the widespread protests in the country, following the death of a 22 year-old woman, Mahsa Amini:

On 28 June 2022, Ali Khamenei broadcasted a message on social media designed to intimidate the people [of Iran] and brazenly defend the murderous crimes of the regime during the 1980s - threatening to have them repeated in the current conditions, stating," The God of the 1980s is the same God as this year's!". This is a clear sign of the [veteran] dictator's concerns about the regime's critical situation.

KKE MEP: Greek government's support to the US-EU-NATO imperialist plans is dangerous

The MEP of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE), Kostas Papadakis made an intervention in the discussion on the "situation in Iran and Iraq after the recent escalation" at the European Parliament plenary in Strasbourg, stressing the following: 
"We denounce the US attack on Iraq that led to casualties, including Iranian and Iraqi military officials. We denounce the US plan to declare the Middle East as NATO's territory. The dangerous involvement of the EU - in the framework of escalating competitions for energy control - aims to benefit itself. It invokes the same provocative pretexts of justifying wars such as in Yugoslavia, Syria, Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan that condemn the peoples to be refugees and in misery. We express our solidarity with the families of the victims of the Ukrainian plane crash  for which the Iranian government has a huge responsibility.
