The Green Movement and the Working Class

Here’s an interesting interview at Tehran Bureau on the working class and the Green Movement: “The Green Movement cannot succeed unless it raises social justice demands, which include workers’ demands at the center. During the Khatami era, Reformists failed because they did not take the demand for social justice seriously, and did not make efforts to organize social forces. When there were disturbances in Islamshahr [a working-class city near Tehran], Reformist newspapers paid them no attention. Reformists better have learned from these experiences.”
