 یادمان رفیق امیر حسن پور   چهارشنبه ۲۷ تير ۱۳۹۷ برابر با ۱۸ جولای ۲۰۱۸                    

I had the privilege of knowing Amir Hasanpour since the beginning of the 21 st century. When I first met Amir he was confronting and combating the anti-communist onslaught that had been unleashed by the collapse of  phony-communist rule in the former USSR and its bloc. He was also forced to deal with the ebb of revolutionary fervour in much of the world, including in Iran, Kurdistan and the Middle East.


In particular, Amir confronted and fought the reformist and reactionary trends that had corroded the erstwhile revolutionary character of many of the existing movements of the time. Amir defended Maoism against revisionism and opportunism. He had to go against the widespread ideological confusion and demoralization wrecking havoc, including among the intelligentsia where Amir  played a prominent role as a communist intellectual.


The high esteem that revolutionary youth and revolutionary-minded intellectuals in Kurdistan and elsewhere hold for Amir Hasanpour comes from his uncompromising, undaunted stand in favor of revolution when the bulk of ex-revolutionaries were capitulating, developing justifications for accommodation with imperialism and reaction and betraying the people.


In this suffocating ideological and intellectual atmosphere,  Amir did not shy away boldly confronting the attacks on Marxism taking place including in Canada where he taught for many years. In particular, Amir fought hard against  Postmodernism and its attacks on science, historical materialism, the need for the dictatorship of the proletariat as a transition to a classless society,  and the very existence of objective truth.


Throughout the years the many exchanges between Amir and myself  were rich,  invigorating and productive. Given Amir's whole history, his revolutionary rectitude and scientific thirst and courage it was not an accident that Amir would come to devote his strengths to explore, appropriate and propagate the new level of scientific communism brought into being by Bob Avakian.


I am proud to have fought side-by-side with Amir Hasanpour for communist revolution, for the propagation of Avakian's new synthesis.  Amir's lifelong work remains a precious source of inspiration and courage.
