The Free Iran Gathering

The Free Iran Gathering

Published by on July 2, 2018

People and Human Rights activists inside Iran showed their solidarity with the Free Iran Gathering by writing slogans and posting posters on walls in different cities in Iran.

Every year in June, since 2004, Iranians travel across the world for an annual convention hosted by The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) in Paris, to show their solidarity with Iranian inside Iran and Iranian thirst for freedom and democracy. This gathering is known as “Galaxy”, which includes human rights and democracy activists, hundreds of global dignitaries, from Members of Parliament and Congressional Representatives, to various leaders from the European Union to the Arab world. The main massage of this every year gathering is the same: Demanding Democracy and Freedom, respecting Human Rights.

The Free Iran Gathering this year is especially important because, it was held against the people’s protests across Iran. Since last December, more than 142 cities in Iran have been witness of protests and uprisings. The protests have been held by teachers, lorry drivers, Tehran’s bazzar and other cities shop owners. The slogans, which had initially aimed financial corruption and economic mismanagement, became political and targeted the Iranian regime.

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.
