Clashes with repressive security forces in Fars province

Published by on July 7, 2015

fars-provinceOn Saturday 5 Jully, agents of Iran’s security forces raided Dehsheikh village in Lamerd (southern Fars Province) on the pretext of confiscating illicit goods. The people in this area confronted the repressive forces and the clashes between people and security forces continued till Sunday.

A number of the people and the assaulting force were injured in these clashes.

Among other things, the oppresive forces were looking to confiscate a truck carrying satellite dishes.

People closed the Dehsheikh-Lamerd road and clashed with the security forces who had confiscated their property and planned to transfer them. A number of the vehicles of the security forces were set ablaze.

Subsequently, the regime dispatched special commando units and a drove of its hirelings. In these clashes over 100 people of Lamord and 40 of the Special Forces were injured.

To prevent the expansion of the clashes to neighboring areas, the repressive forces barred commute of the neighboring villagers and controlled the area with helicopters.

The real smugglers and thieves stealing astronomical figures who are controlled by Khamenei and the revolutionary guards (IRGC) enjoy security and freely plunder people’s properties while the deprived people of Lamerd region are assaulted, battered and arrested on the pretext of smuggling.

At a time when millions of workers have lost their jobs to the destructive policies of the regime and the devastated industry and factories and are living under the poverty line unable to earn a minimum of livelihood for themselves and their families, Khamenei and the IRGC have monopolized the economy and are controlling the ports and entry points of goods, including around 80 ports used for import and export, that has made them the greatest thieves and smugglers of Iran and the region.

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.
