Students’ Revolts in Iran
Herald Great Anti-Fundamentalist Insurrections

Once again, we hear of widespread revolts against the Islamic Republic regime in Iran.  If previously students and conscious elements in Iran only resented and rejected the Vilayat-e-Faqih (Shiite theocracy), today the students are calling the fundamentalist system in toto into question. The murderous Khomeinist regime is panicking. The heroic people of Iran have never for a moment forgotten the blood-drenched domination of the traitorous Mullahs in their country, and despite all the savage terrorism and suffocation unleashed upon them have never desisted from struggling against the clerics.

We staunchly believe that anti-clerical and anti-fundamentalist rebellions, particularly the latest student revolts, herald great and tempestuous insurrections which will sweep away the shameful domination of the fundamentalist regime in Iran. The present revolts bear witness to the fact that the people of Iran no longer believe in cosmetic changes at the helm of the Islamic Republic. They now demand the abolition of the Mullah’s theocratic regime. Although for the moment the student rebellions have ostensibly died down without any apparent gain, there can be no doubt that the people of Iran, through their glorious insurrections and rebellions, shall soon commit the religio-fascist regime to the dustbin.

The Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan proclaims its solidarity with the people of Iran and affirms its staunch support for the brave struggles of Iranian men and women against the blood-dripping Islamic Republic. Pitted as we are against a fundamentalist regime far more odious than the one in Iran, we consider the victory of the Iranian people against their fundamentalist oppressors as our own victory.
