Hereby I would like to announce that after 36 years of supporting federalism for Iran, I have changed my position and oppose any form of federalism for Iran. Five years ago, I fully stated my opposition to reactionary self-rule schemes for Iran's Kurdistan (1) and opposed Lenin's erroneous theory of rights of nations to self-determination (2). Four years ago, I noted that if the leaders of Iran's supporters of federalism misuse such a plan to achieve separatism in Iran (3), I would no longer support federalism (4). I am now convinced this to be the case. Please refer to the Persian text for full explanation of the reasons for my decision (5).

Hoping for a democratic and secular
futurist republic in Iran,
