Here’s my speech at the 1 November Global day of Action for Kobane:
I was disgusted to see Social Workers’ Party and Stop the War Coalition speaking at the protest when they have been the stalwart defenders of the “ISIS” of Iran and other countries.
If you don’t know about their collaboration with the Islamists, see our report here.
Theirs is a politics of siding with the oppressors at the expense of progressive social movements and class politics and most importantly real live human beings.
As I mentioned in my speech, you can be opposed to both US-led militarism and Islamism – something they are clueless about because they have an affinity with the Islamists. How dare they show up and give lip service against ISIS when they have fully supported so many ISIS’ across the world?
BTW, Fariborz Pooya’s speech at the 1 November Global day of Action for Kobane can be seen below too:
