Iran is on the brink of a seminal transformation. The tip of the iceberg is visible in this year’s presidential “elections.” The regime’s Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei, took a major step this week to install his preferred candidate. All other serious challengers, including lifelong regime insiders, some with proven fealty to Khamenei himself, were disqualified. The sham election is now a one-man show.

Iran’s Torture Mastermind Set to Become the Next President

by Hollie McKay
It was a sweltering July afternoon in 1983 when more than a dozen Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps members knocked down Farideh Goudarzi’s aunt’s door, guns drawn.

Iran Elections: As Candidates Quarrel, the People Are Calling for All-Out Boycott of Ballot Boxes


On Saturday, the regime held the third round of televised debates between the carefully vetted candidates of the upcoming sham presidential election.

As far as the show was concerned, it was more of what was seen in the previous debates: Officials who have been deeply involved in the regime’s corruptions and crimes turn against each other to get a bigger share of the pie. And in their squabbles, they end up doing more damage to the regime.

Iran-women (1)

One of the very destructive phenomena that has become now prevalent in Iran, because of the domination of the reactionary thought of the regime, is violence against the women.
