More protesters die as the Guards open fire at the crowds

More protesters die as the Guards open fire at the crowds

Published by on January 1, 2018

At least 12 people have been reported killed during the unrests in the past few days. The regime Guards opened fire at protesters in Dorood, Izeh, Toyserkan,  and some other cities across the country.

ILA calls on international community and the UN to take action and call on the Iranian authorities to stop killing people in the streets. Instead the authorities should heed to the rightful demands of the protestors who are deprived of basic living conditions and suffer from poverty in a country rich with natural resources, most of which is being used to export their fundamentalist brand of religion to other countries, or plundered by the authorities. The people of Iran deserve much better.

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.
