Borazjan people demonstration

Published by on July 9, 2018

People of Borazjan city, southern Iran, have been suffering from the lack of drinking water since 3rd July and they began to protest against the disastrous situation on 7th July.

The protest started from Hospital Square and people chanted; Leave Syria- think about us, Neither Gaza nor Lebanon- my life is for Iran, Don’t scared- Don’t be scared- we are all together, One less theft- our problem will be solved,…..

Iranian authorities promised to solve the problem but people did not believe them and chanted: it is a lie, it is a lie, so that, Khamenei’s representative and Friday prayer imam of the city left the scene in fear.

There are many cities in terrible conditions of this summer, due to lack of water and electricity, while it is very hot. Recently, people of most of the cities in Khuzestan province have had demonstrations in protest of being deprived of drinking water.

According to TASNIM news agency, Shahin Pakrooh, the deputy of water and wastewater engineering company, said: 334 cities are facing the shortage of water this summer, out of which 107 cities are in the red situation. It is expected that Isfahan, Kerman, Fars, Khorasan, and Sistan-Baluchistan provinces will face a more severe crisis.

Abolish death penalty

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.
