“The Greatest Purveyor of Violence”: Black Rose Statement on U.S. Aggression Against Iran

From Black Rose Anarchist Federation

Black Rose Anarchist Federation / Federación Anarquista Rosa Negra unequivocally condemns the U.S. assassination of Iranian General Qasem Soleimani in Iraq. This is a provocation and an act of imperialist aggression that adds to a long history of U.S.-led military and economic violence in the Middle East, including the recent crippling sanctions which most severely impact poor and working class Iranians. This assasination has every possibility of escalating into a large scale armed conflict — something that would undoubtedly lead to the immiseration of millions in the region.
