Iraqi agents block gasoline delivery to Iranians in Camp Liberty

Published by on January 9, 2015

In continuation of the anti-human logistical siege of Camp Liberty, for the fifth straight week, Iraqi agents prevent the entry of gasoline to the camp.

This is despite the fact that the gasoline bought by residents in the past three years has been used merely for a limited number of public service and passenger vehicles allocated to the commute of patients and injured inside the camp.

Barring entry of gasoline forces the patients and the disabled to walk in cold weather on muddy and gravel roads that is equivalent to torture for them. Preventing entry of gasoline for the limited number of vehicles in the camp is blatant breach of the Memorandum of Understanding signed by Government of Iraq.

During the transfer of residents to Camp Liberty, the Iraqi government forced them to leave over 95% of their vehicles in Ashraf and in the ensuing months most of the vehicles were stolen.

Considering the commitments of the U.S. government and the United Nations concerning the security and wellbeing of Camp Liberty residents, the Iranian Resistance is calling for their immediate intervention to end this tyrannical siege

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.
