Wednesday morning beginning at 8:00 am, the mass murdering president of Iran’s Islamic Republic, Ebrahim Raisi, will be met by protests as he addresses the UN. At 6:00 pm, Revolution Books will host a special program of internationalist solidarity with Iran’s political prisoners—held in its dungeons, not for any crime, but for heroically opposing its brutal regime. We will raise our voices and demand their freedom now.
We will stand with the brave struggles of Iranian women against suffocating theocracy... of poets, artists, and filmmakers to think and express themselves freely... of environmentalists for Iran’s ecosystems... of teachers and workers against destitution and tyranny... of ethnic and religious minorities against persecution... and of revolutionaries for emancipation.
These are our brothers and sisters. They are our people! Their heroism reverberates across borders, inspiring courage, determination, and the potential for a new world.
Carl Dix (revolutionary, advocate of Bob Avakian’s new communism), Larry Everest (revcom.us contributor, International Emergency Campaign—IEC—spokesperson), Anahita Rahmani, and others will explore:
- Why people in the U.S. have a special responsibility to confront the crimes this country has committed around the world, and oppose its oppression, plunder and aggression;
- Why we must proceed from the shared interests of humanity—not of the world’s governments;
- Why both the imperialist USA, which poses the greatest threat to humanity, and Iran’s theocracy are forces of reaction which reinforce each other, and why we must not turn to either, but fight to bring forward another way;
- The connection between these struggles and the fight for revolution and the emancipation, why this is a rare moment when revolution becomes more possible in the U.S., and why revolution in the U.S. would jolt billions of people everywhere, shattering the sense that no alternative to this terrible world is possible.
Revolution Books is a beacon for a whole new world—inspired and guided by the work and leadership of Bob Avakian, the most important political thinker and leader on the planet today.
