It was Dec 12, 2006, the famous “Student Day” in Iran. On 16th Azar Street, adjacent to Tehran University, slogans like down with the dictator, down with the fascist president, or “Socialism or Barbarism?” and “Viva Liberty and Equality” could be heard. Later on, on May 1rst, 2007, in a huge unified demonstration, workers expressed their humanistic demands by opposing the segregating social and economical laws of the Islamic Republic with the slogan “Liberty, Equality, Worker’s governorship”. Women have been fighting the sexual apartheid imposed by the Islamic government since long time ago.Students have been supporting workers and women and on March 8th and May 1rst, have clearly shown their position against the Islamic Republic.Currently, the harsh and anti-human behavior of the Islamic Republic has left many students, women and workers imprisoned and under the worst psychological and corporeal tortures. This government executes people in groups and in a medieval fashion; Aggresses the boundaries of the private life of individuals and stone them to death for having extramarital relationship; Applies bullying policies in the region and invites economical embargo against the country, and orders all sorts of rationing on daily necessaries of Iranians.
In an attempt to raise international awareness and support, a group of students, women and workers of Iran have asked for the nullification of stoning, execution and Hijab. Their slogans (Polytechnic students’ slogans) were as follows: Down with the dictator; Student will die but will never accept repression; Workers, Teachers, Unity, Unity; Laws of sexual apartheid should be nullified.Citizens are against aggression to social rights and liberties. They are against militarization of cities under the pretext of fight against thieves and delinquents. People want all the imprisoned students, political prisoners, social activists and workers to be freed from the prisons of the regime including Mahmood Salehi, Mansoor Osanloo and all the women who are thrown into the dungeons of this regime for fighting for their legitimate human rights
