Active Boycott of the Iranian regime’s phoney ‘elections’

Tomorrow, May 19th 2017, the Iranian regime will yet again hold phoney ‘elections’ to disguise the basic fact that it is one of the most repressive capitalist dictatorships in the twenty-first century. Along with the ‘presidential elections’ there will also be ‘local elections’ in Iran’s cities and villages.

Adopting the policy of an active boycott as on previous occasions, activists of the Workers’ Action Committee (WAC) have been on the streets of many cities and towns in Iran sticking up posters, distributing leaflets and spray painting slogans against the regime and calling for the release of political prisoners and jailed labour activists. They also included condemnations of the regime’s mediaeval health and safety standards, as highlighted by the recent tragic deaths at the Zemestan Yurt coal mine.

Over the past few weeks WAC activists extended their work from Tehran into Karaj, Rasht, Sanandaj (the capital of Kurdistan province) and other cities.
