We , the anti – capitalist workers , have always emphasized this important point that the protest rally in front of the parliament and governmental institutions hasn´t and will not force any private or state capitalist to pay any amount of the demands of our social class . We´ve always announced that :
1. Wherever the wheel of labor and production spins , let´s make the strike the solution of our struggles and disrupt the dynamics of profit and production of capital . But we´ve immediately said that due to the economic crisis and the critical situation of the Islamic state of capital that the strike solution will only be successful that we overcome the divisiveness and scattering of our formations . Teacher and employee , nurse , retiree and housewife and literally consider ourselves such members of one social class and get these current strikes out of the confines of centers of workplaces and support each other realistically and practically .
2. If any manufacruring and commercial enterprise is on the verge of closure under any pretext , we must immediately take the path of seizing and administering it by the council .
The closure of the `Irankhodro ´ factory and the potential risk of spreading this form of brutal attack by the capitalist class and the Islamic regime of capital , once again , referring to the strategy of occupying work centers makes it hundred times important . It´s not unlikely that in the face of the onslaught of the capitalist class and closure of other centers and institutions , the workers of these centers should think about occupying the workplaces and like the workers of Haft Tappeh , declare the will of steer the factory by council to be their strategy of struggle . Here too , while referring to historical experiences , we´ve noted that during the uprising of 1979 and after that there were many cases in which the workers themselves took over the management and move the wheel of production instead of the former capitalist managers . But their action didn´t prevent them from being exploited by capital , because the workers´ councils were not anti – capitalist in nature during the uprising 1979 . The removal of the employer from the management of the factories and institutions and that the workers themselves take on the duties of employers and owners of capital and to continue the exploitation of themselves by capital , at the same time they receive their own low and meager wages is an action that doesn´t contain any amount of anti – capitalist content . That several workers instead of the managing director and employers take on the task of sorting out matters related to the cycle of capitalist production and exploitation of workers and hand over the surplus value of their work to the state or private owners of capital has nothing to do with the occupation of the factory by the workers´ councils as a moment and a part of the general and council struggle of the working class against capitalism . Occupying the factories through the councils and anti – capitalist power of the working masses that is , to take over the factories as the council of mass workers and do production and distribution on the council basis . The aim of the production and distribution will be to provide our livelihood and guarantee our social welfare , and organize production and distribution to meet the needs of the communities .
3. It´s clear as day that the capitalists and the Islamic capitalist state will suppress our every strike and attempt to seize the centers of labor . as a result , for any degree of victory requires the organization of a nationwide anti – capitalist council that unites as many workers as possible . To ensure victory we need to provide as much solidarity and support as possible .
4. The key point we emphasize is that have to turn to the real struggle against the capitalist class , against the political power of capital and against the whole existence of capitalism . Any strikes and demonstrations , trafic jams and marches , occupation of the workplaces and riots or any other form of struggle to be regarded as part of the general movement of the working class for destruction of capitalism and abolishment of wage labor , and we , the workers , must play this role .
