The following statement is from the website of the Communist Party of Great Britain (Marxist-Leninist):
The CPGB-ML urges all British workers to give full support to the campaign to reunite the Irish nation.
Karl Marx and Frederick Engels repeatedly taught that the British working class must support the Irish not only as a matter of justice for Ireland but above all in their own class interest.
It absolutely remains the case that the British proletariat will remain slaves to capital unless and until they stand on the side of the Irish people.

Tehran, Iran – Millions of Iranians rallied on Feb. 11 to commemorate the 31st anniversary of the revolution that overthrew the hated U.S.-backed Pahlavi monarchy. In Tehran a massive crowd of 5 million took to the streets, while rallies were held in 800 other cities around the country.
Iran’s ambassador to the United Nations, Mohammad Khazaee, commented that the enormous demonstrations showed “the nation’s determination in maintaining national unity…in the realization of political, economic and social developments and particularly in advancing civilian nuclear technology.” Addressing the propaganda in Western media that attempts to show the Iranian government as unpopular or weakened by the opposition movement, Khazaee said, “The Islamic Republic has now become a powerful and strategic country, where people enjoy a strong sense of unity and solidarity. It is a fact that Western powers must learn to deal with.”
