1334 Days Protest For Liberty

Published by on January 2, 2015

Iranian families call for end to executions in Iran; protection of Camp Liberty residents Iranians 

Iranians supporting their country’s main Iranian opposition movement, the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (MEK/PMOI) continued their protest for 1334th day outside UN Headquarters in Geneva on Friday calling for end to executions in Iran and protection for residents of Camp Liberty, Iraq.

The protesters condemned the violations of human rights in Iran under Hassan Rouhani.

Since Rouhani became president, more than 1,000 people have been executed in Iran, including hundreds of women, youth, ethnic and religious minorities as well as opposition activists.

They also called on the UN to uphold their long-standing commitment to protect thousands of Iranian dissidents in Camp Liberty, Iraq, who have been subject to deadly attacks by the Iraqi government at the behest of the Iranian regime.

Abolish death penalty in Iran

Please Sign our Petition

Dear Secretary General of United Nations,

The number of executions is rising in Iran, journalists are being detained for doing their job and activists face cruel and degrading punishments, long prison terms and even execution. According to the most recent reports by Amnesty International and the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child, “Iran’s judiciary continues to sentence child offenders to death, and carry out their execution by hanging”. Also, on August 9th, 2016 the son of late Ayatollah Hossein Ali Montazeri, Khomeini’s designated successor in 1988, published a shocking audio tape of his father’s meeting with the “Death Commission” which summarily and extra-judicially executed tens of thousands of political prisoners held in jails across Iran. The massacre was carried out on the basis of a fatwa by the regime’s then-Supreme Leader Khomeini.

We, the undersigned, hereby urge you to take up this issue and raise it in the General Assembly in order to;

1. Put pressure on Iran to immediately halt the executions and abolish death penalty in Iran.
2. Call on all Western governments to make any improvement in economic relations with Iran contingent on its human rights record.
3. Demand in its resolution on human rights violations in Iran, to bring the perpetrators of 1988 massacre (one of the worst atrocities the post-war world has ever seen – Geoffrey Robertson-QC) to justice before an international tribunal.

Executions must stop.
