Secret Police Open Fire At Opposition Demo In Tehran
Iranian Secret Police have fired on the crowds protesting against the stealing of the Presidential election. Mir Hossein Mousavi, the "defeated" oresidential candidate had previously addressed the crowd. The demonstrators gathered in Tehran's Revolution Square, chanting pro-Mousavi slogans as riot police menaced them. "Mousavi we support you. We will die, but retrieve our votes," they shouted, many wearing the green of Mousavi's election campaign.
And Mr Mousavi eventually appeared, addressing the crowd from the roof of his car. "The vote of the people is more important than Mousavi or any other person," he told his supporters. Before Mr Mousavi arrived, Reuters reported that his supporters had scuffled with stick-wielding men on motorcycles - apparently supporters of the president.
Iran: Do not give the murderous rulers a break!
The message of Hamid Taqvaee, leader of Worker-communist Party of Iran, addressed to the people in Iran
The ranks of the regime have never been so jumbled and muddled. The Khamenei-Ahmadinejad gang has resolved on crushing and stamping out the opposite gangs. It imagines that it can rely on its forces of suppression and, indeed, the whole state machinery under its control, in order to both see through this internal surgery and, at the same time, to intimidate the society as a whole, that is, to beat back your nascent struggles aimed at the complete overthrow of this wicked government. It is, however, sheer self-delusion on its part. This no June 20th, 1981, the starting point of clamping down the revolution. This no summer of 1988 when, immediately after the conclusion of Iran-Iraq war, thousands of political prisoners were massacred in order to intimidate the people at large. This is no July 9th, 1999, when the people rose up on a massive scale demanding freedom of expression. Today the Islamic regime is too desperate, too corrupt and too rotten to be able to hold off the current wave of protests across the nation. The murderous rulers should not be given a break!

Iran: Let us push back the Islamic Regime’s brutal assault,This regime must go
Worker-communism Unity Party
The main aim of the regime is to crush people’s protest even if it sacrifices some of its own clique on the way. The other candidates namely Mousavi, Karobi and Rezaee first announced that they are seeking advise, but later both Mousavi and Karoubi complained of rigging of votes and that they would not accept the results. However, they do not have much choice. They cannot stand against the regime because their own existence as a so-called viable political force is dependant on the existence of the Islamic Regime. They are in a pickle! If they do not resist, nobody will take them seriously, if they resist people will use the opportunity to surpass them. Their use value is only as the so-called reformist faction of the Islamic regime. Without the Islamic Republic, they will become redundant. They all expire. However, since the regime is holy to them the most probable way out for them is to conform. Their elimination is part of the plan of the right wing.
