Iran: The Uprising of the Thirsty

from sub.media

On July 15th 2021, people took to the streets in the Iranian province of Khouzestan to protest against the lack of water due to government mismanagement. Since then, despite the Iranian state’s brutal repression, the uprising has spread all over the country.

This was a collaboration with The Federation of Anarchism Era & Antimidia.

I am thirsty!

from Asranarshism

THE PEOPLE WANT TO OVERTHROW THIS SYSTEM!

This is a peaceful demonstration; why are you shooting at us? No one has taken the water away from you; no one has taken the land away from you! Why are you shooting at us? We say that peaceful protests are part of our rights. Water and land belong to our rights. To live is our right! We say we want freedom, but they (the regime) shoot at us!

Federation of Anarchism Era on Iran and Afghanistan

Federation of Anarchism Era on Iran and Afghanistan

From The Final Straw Radio

The collective we spoke to for this episode began as a series of remotely-hosted blogs and communication methods among Iranian anarchists at home and abroad. By 2015 anarchists from Afghanistan had started to join and in 2018 the comrades from within Iran and Afghanistan and those living internationally founded Anarchist Union of Afghanistan and Iran. Since, more individuals and groups have joined up from around North Africa, the middle east and other places in the world and they in 2020 re-organized themselves the Federation of Anarchism Era. Last January, after the assassination by the US Trump administration of the murderous Quds leader Soleymani we spoke with members of the then-named AUAI about the network, living under 19 years of US war and 40 years of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

The anarchist Abtin Parsa is a former political prisoner from Iran with the atheist view imprisoned by the Islamic regime for one year and a half in 2014. Abtin Parsa, 16 years old at that time, was arrested by IRGC for an anti-Islamic and anti-state public speech in his high school, “Shahid Chamran,” in the city of Zarqan. Even after his release from prison, Abtin was continued to be pressured and controlled by the Islamic regime, forcing him to escape to Greece in 2016.

Bourgeois justice wants to extradite me anyway

Bourgeois justice wants to extradite me anyway

From The Federation of Anarchism Era by Abtin Parsa

Bourgeois justice wants to extradite me anyway.

Today, July 8, 2021, the Dutch state rejected my request to stop the extradition by sending an email and formally issued an extradition order. I intend to appeal the regime’s decision by making an appeal and take the case to the court, but it has become clear that bourgeois justice intends to extradite me to Greece anyway.

We will soon form the “Anarchism Era Federation,” and the “Anarchists Union of Afghanistan and Iran” will be merged into it

Member groups of the federation can join from across the globe, and their membership would be based on the geographical area in which they live and are active and not based on their place of birth

Anarchist Fugitive Abtin Parsa in Defense of Armed Resistance

Anarchist Fugitive Abtin Parsa in Defense of Armed Resistance

From asranarshism via AMW English

We are in a war situation, some of us were killed, some of us are in prisons, some of us were pushed to escape and are being hidden and many of us are under a lot of pressure. We should accept that resistance against state and capitalism is not the easy way of life but we have no choice: either we resist together and survive, or the state and capitalism will kill all of us one by one.

Anarchist Prisoner Soheil Arabi

From asranarshism.com

Only they who have lost their fear of death are in truly in love… My heart yearns for comrades who can hear

my voice even though a more a dreadful and torturous prison awaits me for the crime of wanting to be a voice for the oppressed and my fellow inmates. Yet to be human is to endure the hardship of accepting responsibility, and there is no greater responsibility for the rebel than to stand with the oppressed. I must be the voice of people like Meysam, and thus refuse to fear Two Alef, 209, One Alef, and the regime’s other horrific prisons

Voices of Notara. Part 2: “they can only kill the fear in our hearts”

from stateless.noblogs.org

This is one in a series of interviews with people involved in the Notara 26 squat in Exarcheia, Athens. The struggle for the free spaces here is made up of people with very different backgrounds, life stories and ideas. We aim to record people’s own words without imposing our views – though of course we can’t escape our own perspectives, or the limits of translation.

Anarchist Prisoner Soheil Arabi – “Anarchism Means Flying Forever”

from anarchists worldwide

Soheil Arabi, the anarchist political prisoner, writes from the notorious Evin prison in northern Tehran, Iran…

Anarchism means flying forever. Since the very moment we open our eyes to this world, from all sides, a net of religion, nationality, language, “race”, sexism is thrown over our intelligence, as an obstacle to flight. When you talk to me about religion, race, language and superstition, then I try to build wings out of these nets to fly towards the infinite freedom of thinking mind.

“The Greatest Purveyor of Violence”: Black Rose Statement on U.S. Aggression Against Iran

“The Greatest Purveyor of Violence”: Black Rose Statement on U.S. Aggression Against Iran

From Black Rose Anarchist Federation

Black Rose Anarchist Federation / Federación Anarquista Rosa Negra unequivocally condemns the U.S. assassination of Iranian General Qasem Soleimani in Iraq. This is a provocation and an act of imperialist aggression that adds to a long history of U.S.-led military and economic violence in the Middle East, including the recent crippling sanctions which most severely impact poor and working class Iranians. This assasination has every possibility of escalating into a large scale armed conflict — something that would undoubtedly lead to the immiseration of millions in the region.
