Next Stage; Strike مرحله بعد از اعتراض ؛ اعتصاب گسترده

30 years ago, it was the strike initiated by the university students and its spread across Tehran Bazar and other cities and oil workers brought down the Shah’s regime. Today the 3rd and 2n generation of Iranians is reading from the revolutionary books of the 1st generation.

Thus last week many Twitters in Iran spoke about the possibility of widespread strike to bring down the regime, and They noted “it is clear that people from all class are ready for strike, this would force the military to join us, we should not wait for the regime’s next step, we have to be proactive.”

Today Amir Kabir university News in Iran reports; in reaction to the atrocities done to the people on Aushura’s day and students crackdown on universities across Iran, some of the students at Tehran’s Amir Kabir University have decided to not go to their exams and class and go on strike. The announcement noted “we have witnessed the violation of human rights on Aushura’s day by these bastards, they are not afraid of killing and raping people and wrongfully accusing people.” In the end the students noted “we the student of Amir Kabir University are uncertain on how in the midst of these shameful events we could attend our classes and take our exams, thus we are reluctant to not go to our class and take our exams until all of our classmate be freed.” In addition according to opposition site kaleme in addition to Amir Kabir University, Science and Industry(Elmo-sanat) University have also expressed their support for strike.

If this growing discontent and strike would continue to grow across different demographic of Iranians, we may witness the toppling of the Islamic regime very soon and possibly in the next couple months especially with the possibly of a stronger leadership emerging from the protesters themselves instead of the virtually ineffective leadership of Mousavi and his current believes to reform within the context of regime.
