Venue: QMUL, Francis Bancroft Room G.13.




Waves of heroic protests have spread rapidly to towns and cities throughout Iran over the past two weeks. This was a spontaneous eruption of rage by the lower-middle-class and working-class youth against poverty, rising prices and destitution, as well as against the wealth and corruption of the Iranian elite – particularly the clerical establishment.

The QMUL Marxists will discuss the revolutionary implications of these protests, and the hypocrisy of Western Imperialist leaders.
