Condemn the execution of political
prisoners in Iran!
On the execution of 5
political prisoners on 9th May, by the criminal Islamic Republic of Iran!
Farzad Kamangar, the hard working teacher of the poor children of Kurdistan villages, was executed. Farzad
was a teacher who felt responsible to teach his students the consciousness. He
was wishing his young students to be the creators of a new society. When Farzad was in prison he wrote tens of letters to his
students and received back hundreds from them.
He taught them the lessons of struggle against poverty and ignorance. He
was teaching them lessons of sacrifice and necessity of struggle for
realisation of a new society, a society free of women’s oppression, free of
poverty and suffering, free of oppression and right-less-ness
and free of exploitation.
Islamic Republic executed Shirin Alam-Houly a woman activist from Kurdistan
to terrify thousands of brave women who had dared to go into the battle field
to fight for liberation and equality. In fact in the system that in the last
thirty one years has continuously used vicious execution to terrify the women
and the people in general, being a woman and a Kurd are two potential crimes.
Farzad Kamangar, Shirin Alam Houly, Ali Heidarian, Farhad Vakili and Mehdi Eslamian have joined thousands who have been executed by
the Islamic Republic Regime in the last thirty one years so that the anti-woman
Islamic Republic, the republic of oppression of the Kurds, Balouch,
Arabs and other national minorities, the republic of exploitation of workers
and toilers can turn Iran into the big prison of majority of the people.
Farhad Vakili, Ali Heidarian were also
two other Kurdish activists, who along with Mehdi Eslamian were executed on Sunday early morning. They like
thousands of fighters were aware of the necessity of giving their life for a
new revolutionary society. Shirin Alam-Houly
until the last moment did not accept to appear to a ‘television’ show as a
condition for her freedom. She did not accept to disappoint thousands of the
youth who have been fighting the Islamic regime in the course of the last year
with thousands of hopes and aspirations.
Today we are sad and outraged. The sadness and rage that should be
the bases of our struggle for overthrowing the Islamic republic and building a
society in which the aspiration and hope of Farzad, Shirin, Farhad and … will be realised.
A society in which no woman will be oppressed, no nation will be under
oppression. A society in which the religion will no longer play a role in
controlling the people’s life, no one will be arrested for struggling against superstitious and
ignorance and no student will be imprisoned, tortured and executed for
defending the freedom and expressing scientific truth. No workers will be lashed
out and imprisoned for celebrating 1st May and demanding the right
There is no doubt that the days that the students of life and
struggle would learn about Farzad Kamangar
and his letters will come.
