Iran human rights exhibition in Trocadero Square – Paris

Published by on July 31, 2015

Paris-30July-aIranians living in France held a human rights stand in Trocadero Square in Parisc to raise awareness about the soaring rate of executions in Iran under the presidency of Hassan Rouhani. In addition the 1988 massacre of 30,000 political prisoners in Iran was exposed.

A new wave of executions and group hangings has been observed in Iran since the July 14 nuclear deal. Faced with growing unrest and failing to address legitimate demands of a restless young population, the Iranian regimes resorts to more executions in order to control the population via fear and intimidation.

We call on human rights organisation and activists to condemn the executions and call on Western leaders to address Iran’s human rights record without hesitation.

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.
