For 3rd month Iraqi forces block gasoline entry into Camp Liberty

Published by on February 3, 2015

Call on U.S. and UN to end the siege and have gasoline and other necessary goods to get to camp

Barring gasoline from getting into Camp Liberty in Iraq that houses Iranian refugees entered its third month.

The gasoline that are purchased by residents in the past three years and brought into the camp is used by a limited number of public service and passenger vehicles.

These vehicles are used for the distribution of residents’ daily food, as well as the commute of patients and injured and those unable to walk on gravel and uneven grounds of the camp.

Barring gasoline from getting into the camp has forced patients to walk in cold weather on slushy and graveled roads that is tantamount to torturing them.

Because of prohibition of gasoline, Iranian residents are even unable to take emergency patients to camp’s clinic.

This is despite the fact that the Iranian residents and their representatives have brought up this anti-human siege to UNAMI’s attention on a daily basis and informed the United Nations and the United States in their many correspondences. Regrettably, no serious steps have yet been taken.

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.
