The left-leaning protest movement in Iran

If you still don't believe the protest movement in Iran is left leaning, take a look at these pictures of recent student demonstrations in Iran on the blog of the Communist Youth Organisation.

The banners say:
'Socialism or barbarity'
'Freedom, Equality'
'The university is not a military base'
'Student movement unite with the labour movement'...

Hello Maryam,

Although, couple of years ago I had studied the Ottoman alphabet for a little while, I don't have any sufficient knowledge on Arabic except the Arabic oriented words in Turkish.

Would you please translete us what is written on the banners?

Thank You,

If you read the comments when I printed your last post, there was doubt about how progressive the movement is in Iran.

It seems that I made a huge blunder in my previous comment.. Arabic? Persian? I am really ashamed.. This is nothing than donkism.. Sorry.
