May Day 2013 - Novosibirsk, Russia
“The May Day demonstration is a fighting review of the revolutionary forces of the proletariat; the Bolshevik party its vanguard. Here in our close column on this day, the fighting mood was like a show of our strength that summarizes all of our hard work.
“Our column was attended by the EIF, the AKM and the Komsomol, and some activists of the Communist Party. Leading our May Day was a friend of the column from the CFS.
“The eyes of the others were on our column, happily and loudly chanting slogans: ‘May 1st —International Workers’ Day! Hurray!’, ‘Long live the friendship of the peoples of the USSR,’ Under the banner of Lenin and Stalin — WIN!’
“Young people actively picked up and chanted the words of the revolutionary songs. Then unanimously we called upon the workers, ‘Stop asking for a handout from the bourgeoisie! Prepare an all-Russian strike!’
“At the end of the demonstration a meeting took place. At the rally, we were active in campaigning and advocacy. There were a lot of young people. More and more, their minds turn to the side of the Soviet era and more and more join the ranks of the fighters against the power of capital, for the victory of the socialist revolution.”

To mark the five year anniversary of the wrongful imprisonment of the seven Iranian Baha’i leaders, the Baha’i International Community is today launching a campaign to call for their immediate release – and to draw attention to the deteriorating human rights situation in Iran.
“On 14 May, the seven innocent Baha’i leaders will have been behind bars for five full years, unjustly imprisoned solely because of their religious beliefs,” said Bani Dugal, the principal representative of the Baha’i International Community to the United Nations.
“We are asking people of good will around the world to raise their voices in an effort to win their freedom and the freedom of other innocent prisoners of conscience in Iran,” she said.
The campaign will run from todaythrough 15 May, under the title “Five Years Too Many.” Around the world, Baha’i communities and others are planning public events that focus on the plight of the seven, who face 15 more years in prison, and whose 20-year sentences are the longest of any current prisoners of conscience in Iran.
“The arrest of the seven Baha’i leaders on false charges, their wrongful imprisonment, and severe mistreatment while in detention are emblematic of the suffering of the Iranian Baha’i community as a whole – and, indeed, the situation of the hundreds of other innocent prisoners of conscience who have been incarcerated for their beliefs,” said Ms. Dugal.
“Their long sentences reflect the Government’s determination to completely oppress the Iranian Baha’i community, which is the country’s largest non-Muslim religious minority.”
Six of the seven Baha’i leaders were arrested on 14 May 2008 in a series of early morning raids in Tehran. The seventh had been detained two months earlier on 5 March 2008.
Since their arrests, the seven – whose names are Fariba Kamalabadi, Jamaloddin Khanjani, Afif Naeimi, Saeid Rezaie, Mahvash Sabet, Behrouz Tavakkoli, and Vahid Tizfahm – have been subject to an entirely flawed judicial process.
During their first year in detention, the seven were not told of the charges against them and they had virtually no access to lawyers. Their trial, conducted over a period of months in 2010 and amounting to only six days in court, was illegally closed to the public, demonstrated extreme bias on the part of prosecutors and judges, and was based on non-existent evidence.
