Iran-Ask Zarif about situation of human rights and 57 executions

On July 17, the CFR and their president Richard Haass has invited Javad Zarif, the Iranian regimes foreign minister to speak at the High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development and meet counterparts.
The set of goals to be reviewed in depth will be the following, including Goal 17. Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development, that will be considered each year:
·         Goal 1. End poverty in all its forms everywhere
·         Goal 2. End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture
·         Goal 3. Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages
·         Goal 5. Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls
·         Goal 9. Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation
·         Goal 14. Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development

poverty in Iran -street children
The problems for Zarif and his regime starts at the first goal, how can anyone expect a regime to work to end poverty when they are the very cause of poverty in Iran? The first step for the regime must be to stop funding terrorism around the Middle East and especially Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Lebanon. But we all know that the regime will never abandon their proxies. The regime has just ratified the minimum wages in Iran to be 1/3 under the poverty line, that means that most families in Iran live under the poverty line.
The mullahs regime is not doing any better on goal 2, in their attempt to get fast money from petrol wells they rerouted rivers and destroyed Iran's bread basket, they turned Irans most fertile area into a desert. Large parts of Iran do not have access to clean drinking water, and it is the failed environmental policy of the regime that is the cause of the drought.
The Iranian regime will never be able to uphold goal 3. If they shall have any hope of upholding that they must stop torturing and harassing ordinary people, they must free all political prisoners, to ensure healthy lives the regime must put together a good health care service so that poor mother is not forced to sell their children in order to pay hospital bills. One other thing, how can they ensure peoples well-being when they tense to execute everyone that disagrees with their rule?

Iran SSF impound the cars of those who are improperly veiled
This regime will never be able to reach goal 5, they just passed a law that forbids women to take off the mandatory hijab in their own cars. This regime has also forbidden women to ride bicycles. One minister went as far as claiming that the drought in Iran is caused by women who refuse to obey hijab laws. Do you really expect that a regime that is capable of this ever will respect and uphold Human Rights?

Goal 9. the regime have building cranes but they are used to hang people, there are no cranes available to use to build neither infrastructure nor new buildings.

With the points above in mind, we ask you, Mr. Haass please reconsider your invitation of Zarif and respect the victims of this regime.

'Free Iran' rally highlights MEK's role in Iranian resistance

By The Media Express

During the 'Free Iran' rally in Paris on July 1, the mood was festive and clearing upbeat, as speakers discussed the movement of MEK members from Iraq to Albania.
But many of the speakers and delegations also spoke of the real possibility of regime change in Iran, as they noted major changes on the international scene. Speaker after speaker from the United States pointed to the new policies of the Trump administration, while others acknowledged the Obama administration for its efforts to remove the MEK from the terrorist list.

Still, the highlight of the event was the keynote address by Maryam Rajavi, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) President-elect. She noted that there was an alternative to the current regime and its extremism.
"Since last July, the Iranian Resistance has hoisted the banner of seeking justice for the victims of the massacre of political prisoners 29 years ago, turning it into the main focus of political discourse in Iran today," said Rajavi.
She noted that in the recent Iranian elections, which many speakers called a "sham", that the slogan of the resistance was "No to the executioner, no to the charlatan". It was a slogan that was widely embraced by the Iranian people, and referenced the attempt by Khamenei to elect Raisi, a member of the death Commission in the 1988 massacre.
Rajavi said there is alternative to the Iranian regime and it is the Iranian resistance.
"It is relying on political prisoners, who reaffirmed their support recently for this gathering from the depth of their cells and dungeons. It is relying on women, workers, teachers, professionals, and selfless youths. It is relying on their unsparing love and generous support, those who borrow money and sell their houses and properties to help keep this Resistance independent, strong, and solidified," said Rajavi.
She noted that the Resistance has continued to fight for freedom and stood by what it has said and promised.
"The Iranian nation is proud to have created a democratic alternative through resistance and great suffering and sacrifice. This decisive asset,…did not exist at the time of the Shah," said Rajavi. She acknowledged that this left a vacuum that allowed the regime to grow and take root.
As part of her discussion of the Resistance, she acknowledged the contributions of Massoud Rajavi, who has been a leader in the Resistance, but also active in encouraging those in Camp Liberty to keep fighting and maintain the struggle for freedom.

Mullahs use European politicians to wash Iranian’s blood off their hands

On July 5th, 2017, there was a well-orchestrated visit by European politicians from 45 different countries, to the notorious Evin prison in Iran. This visit is the latest attempt from the Mullahs regime to repeal claims of human rights abuse in Iranian prisons. The day before the visit, Javad Larijani, the head of the Iranian regime’s so-called «Human Rights Organisation», claimed there are no political prisoners in Iran.

The 1988 Massacre is the worst case of human rights abuse in Iran

Over a few summer months in 1988, the regime of the Mullahs murdered more than 30 000 political prisoners and buried them in vast mass graves. Up until this day, the perpetrator of this hideous crime has gone unpunished. In fact, most of the members of the death commissions have high ranking positions in the regime today. One very profiled member of the death Commission is Ebrahim Raisi, you will remember him as one of the candidates for this year's sham presidential election.  The revelation of his role in the 1988 massacre was one of the reasons Khamenei had to pull him out of the election.

1988 Massacre in Iran led by Khomeini fatwa

The role of Hassan Rouhani, Iran's current president was that of Deputy Commander-in-chief of the regime’s armed forces. In this position, he was fully cognizant of this hideous crime and obviously as in full conformity. He is like all other senior officials of the regime a culprit of this hideous crime.
The truth commission in London in 2012 gave the victims and their families a voice that could be heard all over the world. The
