“NO! In the Name of
Humanity, We REFUSE TO Accept a Fascist America!”
We all know that 20th January Donald
Trump will be inaugurated as the president of the US. This has concerned
hundreds of million not only in the US but also all over the world.
Trump based his electoral campaign on male
supremacy, white supremacy, national chauvinism, the threat of attacking
refugees and Muslims and the nuclear arm race. So degrading women, humiliating
gays, racism and discrimination against non-whites, oppressing other nations
and religions, threat of another nuclear arm race and as a result the threat of
a dangerous and destructive war with weapons of mass destruction is an
integrated part of his programs. He has also promised to greatly increase the
Co2 emissions and is threatening the whole planet and the life of the next
He has gathered the most backward, outmoded and
reactionary values and ideas to constitute the kind of rule he is planning for:
fascism. This is how a representative of a capitalist imperialist is planning
to rule the US and oppress and exploit other countries and follow its global
interest. The rule that would be a threat to humanity and the whole planet and
can match with Germany Nazi nonetheless with access to much more powerful
weapons of mass destruction.
We are extremely disgusted by the way that the
women have been humiliated and degraded by someone who is going to rule over the most
powerful country in the world.
The Iranian women have had the experience of a theocratic
regime that came to power based on religion and backward and anti-women values.
Many did not believe that such a backward idea against women would be possible
to enforce. But the compulsory veil for women immediately after they took the
power was the first attack against women’s right that gave rise to days of
protests of tens of thousands women in Tehran. The regime relying on its
conservative bases from one side and dismissing the seriousness of these
attacks as trivial and secondary by many including the progressive and
revolutionary forces from the other side undermined the support that the women’s
movement needed and deserved. The religious anti-woman regime in Iran continued to increase the pressure on
women and increasingly deprived them from other social activities. The attack
against women in a short time extended to attack against the national minorities,
and then restriction of individual rights and attacking religious minorities,
communists and other opposition’s group continued until the point to imprison
torture and execute tens of thousands of members and supporters of
revolutionary organisations and other opposition groups and the reign of terror
that still continues.
Women have since been resisting and fighting with rise
and fall this anti-women regime. We Iranian women are well aware that our
liberation depends on our struggle for a revolutionary overthrow of this
fundamentalist Islamic regime.
We fully and
deeply understand what the degradation of women means. We can feel the pain of
discrimination whether imposed on women or on any other sections of the
We would like to express our full appreciation to your
effort to organise and unite all those who cannot stand aside and see a fascist
America is taking form.
We totally support your fight and struggle to unite
and organise the people from all walks of society, to stop, a regime headed by
Trump/Pence to take control and carry on with a truly horrendous program.
No matter where we are, we greatly feel the threat
that Trump/Pence and their clique are imposing not only to the US but to the
world as a whole and cannot remain indifferent but are determined to be part of
This is our duty to fight against oppression of
women, against the racism, and against inciting hate and fear on refugees and
the people from different race and religion.
This is our duty to do whatever we can to stop the
madness drive to nuclear arm race and the threat it poses to humanity and the
planet as a whole.
All these at the present situation are tied to
refuse and resist a fascist America.
Your struggle against a fascist America headed by
Trump/Pence is our struggle and the struggle of all the revolutionaries and
freedom lovers of the world and those who are struggling for a world without
oppression and exploitation.
On 20th January we will be with you and millions
of people in the US and all over the world and determined to refuse to accept
Your Struggle is Our Struggle
