About this Case

The information about Mr. Hassan Sediqi is taken from the book Our Martyrs for Freedom and Socialism by Rah-e Kargar publications. He was a sympathizer of the Revolutionary Workers Organization of Iran, Rah-e Kargar.

"Rah-e Kargar" or the "Revolutionary Workers Organization of Iran" was established in the summer of 1979. The Organization was founded by individuals from various leftist groups who rejected the idea of armed struggle and believed in political action. They identified themselves as Marxist-Leninists, promoting a socialist revolution and the leadership of the proletariat. They differed with the pro-Soviet communist party, Tudeh, in that they opposed the Islamic Republic and Ayatollah Khomeini's leadership.
