Iran's political crisis: our readers write
Our July issue featured the story "Selling Iran: Ahmadinejad, Privatization and a Bus Driver Who Said No" by Billy Wharton of Dissident Voice, on resistance to union-busting, austerity measures and sale of state assets by the Islamic Republic. Our multiple-choice July Exit Poll was: "What is your position on the election in Iran?" We received 7 votes. The results follow:
I fully support the rightfully elected government of Ahmadinejad. 0% (0 votes)
All power to the people! I am with the protesters. 57% (4 votes)
It is wrong to pick a side. American Imperialism is the real enemy. 43% (3 votes)
So the winner is: All power to the people! I am with the protesters.
A tip of the hat to the Socialist WebZine, where the poll first appeared.
