The Revolutionary Path Forward and the Great Significance of the Communist Party of Iran (MLM)

The Iranian regime’s murderous assault on the uprising has deepened the chasm between it and masses of Iranian people. This continues to spark calls for revolution and ending the Islamic Republic’s rule. And this is sharply posing the question of how to go forward, how to deal with the regime’s bloodthirsty violence, and how to bring these savage oppressors down and get to a better world.

The uprising and the heavy questions it’s posing are taking place in a very complex and rapidly developing situation. Iran is a complicated society with many different class and social forces, and nationalities. And there are a wide range of political programs among those rebelling, including among the Iranian exile community in places like the U.S. and Europe. On top of this, major imperialist powers like the U.S., Russia, and China, are maneuvering in different ways to respond to the uprising in Iran to advance their predatory interests.

All this underscores what a great thing it is for the people of the world and the emancipation of humanity that there is a revolutionary party in Iran—the Communist Party of Iran (Marxist-Leninist-Maoist)—that is actively applying the new communism of Bob Avakian to the situation, at great risk and with great sacrifices. Without such revolutionary leadership, without an actual revolution, there can be no real liberation of women—or anyone else—in Iran or on the whole planet.

So it is very important to familiarize ourselves with, and spread the work and leadership of the Communist Party of Iran (MLM) (CPI-MLM) far and wide, including its emphasis on refusing to side with or rely on any of the world’s reactionary or imperialist powers.

What is unfolding with grandeur and magnificence in the four corners of Iran is not an “Iranian” event! It is a cry for liberation from oppressed humanity…


In this light we wanted to share this important excerpt from the CPI-MLM: People of the World: Take up the Cry of Revolution from Iran as Your Own!, which was posted at, October 18, 2022:

What is unfolding with grandeur and magnificence in the four corners of Iran is not an “Iranian” event! It is a cry for liberation from oppressed humanity, especially the female half of humanity, to find a way out from the vicious, ugly oppression they are suffering under the fascist theocratic state of the Islamic Republic of Iran (IRI). With all its particularity and uniqueness, theirs is a universal cry for human emancipation! That is why people from Afghanistan and the rest of the Middle East, all the way to poor, hungry and devastated Africa and even in the more prosperous imperialist countries of Europe and North America are stirred by this cry! The uplifting and beautiful uprising triggered by the brutal murder of the young Jina (Mahsa Amini) at the hands of Iran’s hated “morality” police was long overdue, because the enslavement of women has long been a pillar of the IRI. The world’s people are right to be jubilant at how fearlessly the women in Iran are striking back at their patriarchal enslavement. They feel and see inspiring hope for getting rid of every kind of oppression in every corner of the world, a glimpse of humanity’s potential to carve a radically different world out of all the oppression and exploitation that surrounds us. Especially at a time when the Earth is on the verge of environmental collapse and the big capitalist-imperialist gangsters, such as the U.S. and Russia, are threatening the world with nuclear Armageddon.

So we call on you, the people of the world—and NOT your reactionary rulers!—to stand in solidarity with the uprising of Iran’s people. The reactionary rulers of especially the Western imperialist countries shamelessly parade their so-called sympathy for the uprising—trying to hide the ugly truth of how they—and especially the U.S. imperialists—have committed atrocious crimes to hold down the people of Iran and the Middle East for generations, carrying out bloody coups and imposing feudal sheikhs and shahs on the region’s countries, all to ensure their prosperity and global domination. Enough! Imagine what it would mean to the people of Iran to see the faces of people in these countries and around the world, rising with them in the streets and declaring their own determination to fight for a radically new world.

DONATE to the revolution.

From the genocide in Gaza, to the growing threat of world war between nuclear powers, to escalating environmental devastation… the capitalist-imperialist system ruling over us is a horror for billions around the world and is tearing up the fabric of life on earth. Now the all-out battle within the U.S. ruling class, between fascist Republicans and war criminal Democrats, is coming to a head—likely during, or before, the coming elections—ripping society apart unlike anything since the Civil War. 

Bob Avakian (BA), revolutionary leader and author of the new communism, has developed a strategy to prepare for and make revolution. He’s scientifically analyzed that this is a rare time when an actual revolution has become more possible, and has laid out the sweeping vision, solid foundation and concrete blueprint for “what comes next,” in the Constitution for the New Socialist Republic in North America

The website follows and applies that leadership and is essential to all this. We post new materials from BA and curate his whole body of work. We apply the science he’s developed to analyze and expose every key event in society, every week. posts BA’s timely leadership for the revcoms (revolutionary communists), including his social media posts which break this down for people every week and sometimes more. We act as a guiding and connecting hub for the growing revcom movement nationwide: not just showing what’s being done, but going into what’s right and what’s wrong and rapidly learning—and recruiting new people into what has to be a rapidly growing force.

Put it this way: there will be no revolution unless this website not only “keeps going” but goes up to a whole different level!
