The Anarchist Union Of Afghanistan & Iran – United Front

The most beautiful news to the ears of Internationalists is the stirrings of revolution and Anarchism around the globe. Other the past few years we’ve several groups become more visible and active, from union organising Bangladeshi Garment workers to mayday marches revolution minded Indonesians. Recently we’ve seen folk come together to form “the Anarchist Union Of Afganistan & Iran” who along with other groups and individuals are urging all blocks of Socialist, Communist , Anarchist and republicans to join a “United Front for Freedom, Fairness and Equality” against the fascistic Islamic Regime of Iran

STATEMENT ON THE FOUNDATION OF A UNITED FRONT FOR FREEDOM, FAIRNESS AND EQUALITY

Invitation to Co-ordination and Cooperation to Overthrow the Islamic State of Iran. In view of the fact that

•The Islamic fascist regime in Iran quite correctly considers the progressive/Libertarian and left wings movements as one of its most active enemies, and did/do execute, imprison and torture our comrades

•On the other hand, right-wing ringleaders from all sides, and with the racist propaganda and the prospect of the continuation of the tyranny cycle, suppress any voice of freedom, equality and fairness, through their mass media

•This common pain will never be healed without organization, coalition, synergy and harmony. We should learn from the Spanish Civil War experience where Left blocs and the Republicans formed alliance as a campaign plan, in accordance with the specific circumstances of Iran and its political forces, to coordinate the fight for freedom, Fairness and Equality. Another example that can be mentioned is the community of Rojava’s popular democratic autonomy, which has been able to coordinate various political from all over the world to combat the tyranny regimes of the region. Thus, it is possible to create a network of pioneers of variety of political with libertarian, equality and fairness tendencies, including women movements, farmers, workers, students and other progressive radical that aims to overthrow The Islamic Regime of Iran under the umbrella of the United Front for Freedom, Fair and Equity

Hereby by publishing this statement, as a group of individuals and political groups, take the first step in founding this “United Front”, and we invite you to join us in this battle against the “Islamic Republic of Iran”

Long live: Freedom Fairness Equality Solidarity

This stirring of revolution isn’t coming out of thin air either, back in 2009 there was a movement called “The Anarchist Network” which was growing in popularity amongst workers and students before is was “destroyed due to the betrayal of a member”. The organisers however bounced back in by establishing “The Anarchist Era”, who place focus on the struggle for freedom for the working class with members in Iran and Afghanistan

This new network has been active ever since, starting small with secretive meetings and sharing their ideas in a clandestine manner, utilising what little power they had to share information with like minded comrades. They have slowly become a more public presence on the Anarchist scene in Iran and international. These slow steps are no mistake, Iran is a very dangerous place to be an Anarchist. In 2013 Soheil Arabi an Anarcho Syndicalist was arrested and sent to Tehran Prison where he has been since reportedly held in solitary confinement and faces regular torture with the soldiers who act as screws beating him and other prisoners up and then refusing medicinal attention

There is also the case of Abtin Parsa who was arrested in 2014 at the age of 16 and sent to “the IRGC secret prison of Zarghan city” for 18 months, during which time he was tortured by a man named Seyed Jaáfari and was left in horrific conditions in a cell which often rang with the appalling sound of The Revolutionary Guards officials raping inmates. Thankfully he was released on condition that he stopped political activity. He however fled from Iran to Greece on 2016

In the Uk, watching activists gleefully line up to do a few hours in the cells before sleeping “the sleep of the just”, it’s often easy to be complacent with the struggles of our comrades in distant lands suffer under an authority with no need of a liberal mask.The formation of a union of Anarchists present unparalleled danger to our comrades and yet here they are sharing seditious material and fighting against the state and fanatically religious authorities which seek to suppress freedom

The “United Front” is a call to action from individuals from across the left wing and “The Anarchist Union of Afghanistan & Iran” which itself formed in 2018 out of three revolutionary groups

۱-The Anarchist Era Collective (a community of anarchists from Iran and Afghanistan operating both inside and outside their countries) 2-The Anarchist group “Aleyh” (based in Afghanistan) 3-The Revolutionary Radical Anarchist Front (based in Iran)

They are expanding and building links with Anarchists around the world. If you are Iranian, Afghani or from any of the numerous communities who call the region home, get in contact. Comrades and allies globally step up and share solidarity and together we can work towards a truly global revolution of the working classes
