Iranian exiles protest in London condemns human rights violations

Published by on February 8, 2016

Iranian exiles took part in a rally in London’s Parliament Square and St James’ Square on Thursday, February 4, to protest against the presence of an the Iranian regime’s Foreign Minister at the Supporting Syria and the Region conference.

Iranians, taking part in a rally organized by National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), stressed that Iran has been the main supporter of Syrian dictator, Bashar Assad and has facilitated the massacre of the Syrian people.

They also underscored the gross violations of human rights in Iran during the tenure of Hassan Rouhani as the president of the clerical regime in Iran.

Since Hassan Rouhani has taken office over 2200 prisoners have been executed including minors and women.

Hossein Abedini, member of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), said: “It is absolutely outrageous that Zarif is a part of the conference, when he is part of a regime that has sent thousands of people to fight in Syria to slaughter the Syrian people.”

“The regime in Iran has been sending tens of billions of dollars to [President Bashar al] Assad so it is illogical and irrational to involve him in the conference – it is like inviting an arsonist to put out the fire.”

Many members of the British Parliament and human rights activist joined the rally and supported their demands.

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.
