Shahrokh Zamani’s message to “week-long campaign to save the life of Reza Shahabi, and to free the imprisoned workers and other political prisoners”.
Long live the international solidarity of the workers
With the most cordial greetings:
I, Shahrokh Zamani, shake your loving and formidable hands from Gohardast Prison. I solute all of you workers, Iranian labor activists and comrades of other nationalities that in unity and international solidarity have participated in this action to help us, the imprisoned workers in Iran.
I, while supporting the “the call for a week-long campaign to save the life of Reza Shahabi, and to free the imprisoned workers and other political prisoners”, hope that you achieve your goals through careful planning and organization. I also wish that each time such solidarities become broader and more united until it takes the shape of a permanent body.
I would like to sincerely state, it is my deepest wishes that the global working class reaches such a solidarity and unity that capitalism, fearful of workers struggles and revolutions, become sterile in producing terrorist, racist, Nazis and … and incapable of engaging in wars and murders that it is imposing upon humanity. I wish for us to reach such a solidarity that no capitalist state be capable of imprisoning workers and revolutionaries.
Today, you and other supporters of the working class, hand in hand, are waging a global protest in support of the imprisoned workers that very well may be the nuclei of a global solidarity and unified actions. In the past 6 months, your endeavors and activities in forms of gatherings, demonstrations, meetings, petitioning and attraction of other workers organizations and international institutions have created an extremely positive result. And for this, we are grateful. There is no doubt that your current week long campaign for the release of Reza Shahabi and clarification of Behnam Ebrahim-zade’s conditions will reach the desired result.
Comrades, wherever I may be, even behind the bars of prison, consider me by your side when we cry out “The only solution is workers unity and organization”
Comrades! Your struggle be powerful and mighty!
