Austria: Rally against Iranian President Rouhani
Report (with Pictures and Video) from the Austrian Section of theRevolutionary Communist International Tendency (RCIT), 04.07.2018,www.rkob.net
Today, about more than hundred Syrian and Ahwazi migrants and refugees hold a protest rally in the centre of Vienna. The protest was caused by the visit of Iranian President Rouhani who met the Austrian right-wing government. According to news agencies Russia’s and China’s foreign ministers are also supposed to join the negotiations.
The demonstrators expressed their protest about the reactionary dictatorship in Iran. They condemned the regime’s oppressive policy against the Arab minority inside Iran. They also condemned the regime’s foreign policy of support for the genocidal regime of Assad in Syria.
The Austrian section of the RCIT was invited to participate in the rally. Comrade Michael Pröbsting, the International Secretary of the RCIT, was asked to address the rally (see the video of his speech below). He stated our solidarity with the liberation struggle of the Syrian people as well as of the Ahwazi people. He said that we are protesting against the Iranian regime but not against the Iranian people who rightly protested repeatedly against the regime in the past few months. Furthermore he made clear that we absolutely oppose any interference of US or Israeli imperialism.
The RCIT has published numerous articles and documents on Iran as well as the Syrian Revolution which can be read on the RCIT’s website at https://www.thecommunists.net/worldwide/africa-and-middle-east/.
