Iraqi agents continue to block entry of essential logistics to Camp Liberty

Iraqi agents continue to block entry of essential logistics to Camp Liberty

Published by on May 31, 2015

Camp-Liberty-300By the orders of the Governmental Committee tasked to suppress Ashrafis in Camp Liberty, Iraqi forces are obstructing entry of vehicles carrying repair and maintenance items for the second straight week.

These items are necessary for the maintenance of camp’s infrastructure, water purification system and the generators that produce camp’s electricity. If this condition is allowed to continue, camp’s infrastructures will be disrupted and considering the hot season, residents will soon experience serious crisis.

Sadeq Mohammed Kadhim and Ahmed Khozair from the suppressive committee are preventing entry of these items purchased and paid for by the residents and their supporters.

Obstructing entry of basic humanitarian needs is a flagrant violation of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed between the United Nations and the Iraqi government on 25 December 2011, as well as a breach of many international conventions that demands legal prosecution.

The United Nations and the U.S. government that have repeatedly and in writing committed themselves to the wellbeing and security of the Liberty residents, must take immediate steps to end this antihuman siege.

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.
