End the Inhumane Siege of Camp Liberty

1st February 2015

Photo_01_London-5Lord Tony Clarke of Hampstead was the main speaker in our event in London.

He said: I am so happy to be able to say thank you to you. Those of you that have given so much of your time, your efforts, your support, for the people who are incarcerated not just in Ashraf and in Liberty but the people in Iran itself. You have given your time, your love and devotion to a cause.

There is no higher cause, ever, than to be looking after one’s fellow human beings and you’ve kept that going here and I’m so delighted to be ablePhoto_01_London-4 to spend a bit of time with you.
My mind goes back to the young girl who was in Ashraf, we had a phone link from Westminster to Ashraf. And I spoke to this girl, spoke perfect English, and we expressed our solidarity and our friendship, and then on that dreadful day, that sixteen-year-old girl was murdered with the other residents in Ashraf.

And I always tell politicians, if they want to find out the truth, read the reports from the Photo_01_London-3regime itself, because unlike many other parts where they cover up their brutality, the regime in Iran – they seem to be proud. And I think the reason for that is, they want to install fear in everybody’s heart. It’s a duty on democratic people to speak out when these
things are going on. We have to, as we do, keep telling our government that they shouldn’t talk about appeasement. Get a hold of that ten-point plan of Madame Rajavi and start working the proper answer to the problems of Iran Thanks for all you do to keep the message going out and the flag flying for freedom.

Join me in my hope and prayer that Iran will be free.

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.
