It’s understood that many people in society will not actively join a revolutionary movement, at least at first. Capital fragments the intellectuals, the petit-bourgeoisie, the peasant small farmers and the revolutionary minority among the affluent. These people have much to lose and more to fear.

The best thing that the other classes can do for the revolutionary working class, as it struggles for the liberation of all the peoples of society, is to close their shops and bring commerce to a standstill. The first day of the organized general strike was yesterday, 24 June. It was an amazing show of support for the demonstrators, as all of Tehran shut their doors and windows in a mass protest of the violence and repression all around them.
