Tehran Bus Drivers To Stay Home on Friday

SMCCDI (Information Service)
January 30, 2006

Hundreds of "Tehran's Collective Bus Company" (TCBC)
drivers, technicians and workers will stay home, this
upcoming Friday, in order to protest against the brutal
repression of their peaceful actions and the mistreatment
of their colleagues and family members.

Hundreds of TCBC employees were arrested and tens,
including wives and children, were wounded following last
Saturday's strike, by brutal Islamist militiamen and
Islamic regime's plain clothes' agents.
Most of the arrested are kept in section 240 of the
infamous Evin political jail and several of them have been
put in solitary confinement in order to make false
confessions on links with foreign intelligence.

The Greater Tehran has approximately around 12 millions of
inhabitants and many are supportive of the strikers. Most
workers and governmental employees, such as teachers, are
openly supporting the bus drivers and tracts are widely
distributed in order to condemn the regime.

The repression of the TCBC strikers, who are from the poor
layers of the society, has boosted the already advanced
process of decomposition of Ahmadinejad's administration's
image, just as, the repression of the Students' Uprising of
July 1999 did with Khatami's administration. Ahmadinejad
was declared to be a defender of the poor against the rich
Islamist oligarchs who are affiliated to Rafsanjani and
Khatami administrations. He was supposed to re-establish
'justice' and to make all Iranians benefit of the country's

In reality, more and more Iranians are understanding that
the problem is not about men but of the totality of an
ideological and theocratic political structure without any
ability of reform or accountability.

The movement of the Tehran's Collective Bus Company's
drivers, if extended due to a free world's support, might
lead to the apparition of a worker movement, such as, the
1980's Solidarnosc (Solidarity) which was able to rally
various economic sectors behind it and to create the
possibility of radical political changes in Poland.
Solidarnosc was the independent Polish Shipyards' Workers'
Union formed in Gdansk, lead by Lech Walesa, and which was
in opposition to the Militaro-Communist rule of General
Jaruzelski backed by the defunct USSR.

Most Iranian National-Secularist groups, such as, the
SMCCDI and the INSP (Iran's National-Secular Party) are
supportive of the TCBC strikers and in general of any clean
and clear move for a genuine democratic and secularist
change in Iran. The two movements' members and supporters
have been asked to help the families of the TCBC employees.
The expression of such support and calls on the population
to protect the strikers have been made, at several
occasion, on the waves of abroad based Iranian radio and
satellite TV networks broadcasting for Iran.

The TCBC strikers' move and legitimate aspirations are not
only limited to internal Iranian debate and in this line,
several western workers' unions, the International
Brotherhood of Teamsters, and influent politicians, such
as, the U.S. Senator Rick Santorum have already declared
their support.

Without doubt, the continuation of such public supports and
a real financial support for the TCBC strikers can plunge
the Islamic regime into an abyss from which it can not
escape. The result would no more lead to just obtaining
some controlled 'greater freedoms or liberties' in the
frame of the current theorcratic regime, but to a total
liberation of Iran due to a secular and democratic
revolution without any need to any kind of military
The trend has become more noticeable, as especially the
absolute majority of Iranians have well taken their
distances from the regime's "reformists from within" and
some of their docile so-called student associations, such
as, the "Office of Consolidation Unity" (OCU).

Many Iranians are looking for President's George W. Bush
State of Union's speech, of tomorrow evening, in order to
hear his comments on Iran and the quest of Iranians for
genuine freedom. SMCCDI and INSP believe that George W.
Bush can surely play an important role, just as; the late
President Ronald Reagan did in supporting openly the Polish
people's aspiration for a total change of the society and
Solidarnosc's movement.
