Most Iranian left wings boycott recent presidential election


Yes! reformists are religious. They are anti-left. Sovereignty is very sensitive to relationship between lower classes and left. On the other hand slogans of green movement isn’t attractive for lower classes and economic slogans for this class is important. If the link be established between middle class and lower class this government will be overthrown Because street protests reached impasse and only workers strikes could be successful.

En Iran, chaque contestation se retrouve dans le giron du mouvement d’opposition à Ahmadinejad. Des manifestations simples tournent en grands évènements. J’ai saisi cette occasion pour demander le point de vue d’une amie sur place, elle a bien voulu le partager avec les visiteurs de mon blog :

Mounir Bensalah : My friends and i, we follow what happens in Iran. We are proud, as left and human right activists, of people there. Can you give us more explanation of the situation in Iran?.

R M : Thank you for your sympathy, you know that I’m leftist too. This movement is owned to mid-class of IRAN society. Most Iranian left wings boycott recent presidential election. We support protests but we think until labours and other low-class members don’t participate in social struggles it won’t meet victory.

MB : But we think, from here, that all protestation is supporting candidate Mussaoui. I see your position : « until labours and other low-class members don’t participate in social struggles it won’t meet victory ». But let’s say, are these classes more conservative and submitted or in Iran, no power can move these classes?

RM : Yes! reformists are religious. They are anti-left. Sovereignty is very sensitive to relationship between lower classes and left. On the other hand slogans of green movement isn’t attractive for lower classes and economic slogans for this class is important. If the link be established between middle class and lower class this government will be overthrown Because street protests reached impasse and only workers strikes could be successful. As in 1979, oil workers strike and the Shahs government was paralysed.

MB : I see, but I don’t think that the movement now in Iran is going for another revolution 🙂 I think that Iranians who are protesting now against election are multiples : young people needing more freedom, feminists who don’t accept that hijab is obligatory, … Now, this is left, or social democrat. How can they be followed by poor, worker, … classes? this is all the question of leftists everywhere 🙂 Finally, I won t to ask you simple question : what Iran are you dreaming for?

RM : Iran is not a person or stream. Iran have very complex issues. Left in Iran is very weak and have no tribune Because the religious state will punish all Muslim-borns that become Atheist. Left in Iran has not equipments and willingness to planing a revolution and simply can’t conduct lower classes to victory.

La gauche, ça existe chez nous aussi 🙂
