Iranian Political Parties & Organizations (an evaluation)
Present Political Analysis
January 27, 2005

"IPC is a coalition of members from All Opposition Groups."

By keeping that in mind, to set policy, form coalitions, expand our numbers, and most important, to create the Transitional Government in Exile, we need to analyze all opposition groups and decide the tactics from then on............. We need to get all the major players, specifically one's with numbers and man power on board.

Why don't we go over the list together and see what we can do.

First list are the major political parties and the second list are the minor organizations.

Lets go over the first list, first. Later on we try to go over the second one (if time allows).

We need to see where we are with these parties and where do we stand relation wise with them. We have 9 measuring factors which they change through the time. We must decide the amount of these measuring factors @ the present time.

Lets concentrate on these issues:

They are Reformists in communication with IRI, they are also pacifists and they lost their old power and glory of the past. Until they change their position and join the opposition, we cannot consort with them. We must try to start more & more dialogues with their associate groups which work with them. We could expand the communication with their associate groups inside Iran who are in contact with students. We must keep the communication open and get them to start the dialogue.

Comments: Even though we have Mojahed members, yet we have no official communication with the Mojahedin Org. We must try opening up a way to officially communicate and have dialogue with them.

That brings us to the end of our present analysis of the major Iranian Political Groups.

While we send more info to all these groups, we shall try to expand the line of communication (if exists) or start a line of communication (if non existent) with them. We must get the dialogue started with their organizations. We must get more & more of their sympathizers or members on board and in our coalition. We must clarify that All Political Activists of Iran are welcomed to IPC and emphasize on the fact that IPC is a Coalition of members from All Opposition Groups.

We must also expand our level of consorting and associating with these various groups.

Mostly, we need to add man power and numbers to our ranks. To rebuild (specifically internal organization in Iran) operations, we need valuable reliable members.

We must work through dialogue and debates.

That's my take,
What's yours?
