The International Alliance in Support of Workers in Iran (IASWI) was formed in 1999 in Toronto-Canada and formally announced its formation in January 2000. In nearly two decades of continuous activism we have played an impactful role in securing international support for Iranian workers’ struggles against Islamic Republic of Iran, employers, and the inhumane conditions capitalist order has imposed on working class lives in Iran. During these years our politics and the foundational basis guiding our activism has been predicated on working class traditions with an uncompromising emphasis on working class independence and autonomy.
