Ban on entry of basic needs into Camp Liberty continues

check-point-iraqBan on entry of food, medicine and utility vehicles into Camp Liberty continues after July 4th missile attack on Camp Liberty.
Four days after July 4th missile attack against Camp Liberty in Iraq, leaving large portions of the residents’ facilities and supplies destroyed, for the 11th consecutive day Iraqi agents continue to prevent the delivery of food and medicine, and the entrance of utility vehicles into the camp.
As seen in previous days, on Thursday, July 7th the Iraqi forces – under orders issued by the camp crackdown committee – prevented the entry of food and medicine, and utility trucks into the camp, forcing them to return. Currently the residents are facing a shortage in food and medicine, and a major hygiene crisis, whereas 50 of the residents were injured and wounded in the July 4th missile barrage and a significant portion of their facilities and supplies were destroyed. Currently this has left the camp in further need of medical supplies, logistics and food stuffs.
The continuing criminal siege imposed on Camp Liberty, aimed at imposing pressure and psychological/physical pressure on the residents and paving the path for further attacks against Camp Liberty, is a clear example of a crime against humanity. The individuals behind this blockade must be placed before justice.
Reiterating the numerous and written commitments pledged by the United Nations and U.S. government vis-à-vis the residents’ safety and security, the Iranian Resistance calls for speedy intervention to have the 11-day inhumane siege lifted and the resumption of deliveries into the camp providing the residents’ needs, setting aside all obstacles preventing the delivery of food and medicine, and the commuting of utility vehicles needed to deplete the camp’s sewage tanks.

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.
