On Dec. 28, 2017, in the religious center, Mashhad, Iran, dem­onstrations broke out, quickly spreading to over 90 cities and towns in ev­ery part of the country. Protesters voiced human in­dignation over sharp increases in the cost of basic food items, unem­ployment, unpaid labor, government corruption, and proposed higher fuel prices. They op­posed Iran’s genocidal, imperi­alist war in Syria.

In retrospect, the Iranian regime’s crushing of the 2009 Green Movement can be seen as a dress rehearsal for the world ruling classes’ attempted murder of the Arab Spring revolutions in 2011. How does this new-born struggle impact our own against the global turn to reactionary nationalism personified by Trump here?
