Call to condition any deal with the clerical regime on stopping execution and torture
On the morning of April 9, 2017, hundreds of families of prisoners on death row, especially women, rallied in front of parliament, demanding the abolition of the death penalty. Demonstrators had come from Tehran, Isfahan, Fars, Lorestan, Yazd, Khorasan, Ilam, West Azerbaijan, Kurdistan, Kohgiluyeh and Boyer-Ahmad, Hormozgan, Sistan and Baluchistan, and Mazandaran provinces and carried banners reading: "No to execution", "Don’t kill our children", "You are killing breadwinner's of the families", "Every Iranian raises their voice against the death sentence", "We demand the abolition of the death penalty”, “The request of all Iranians is the abolition of the death penalty", and “Don’t kill life”.
In a heinous crime on April 5, 2017, a seriously ill prisoner was hanged in Esfahan prison. Houshang Servati was executed while two days earlier, after his transfer to solitary confinement, had suffered a heart attack. He had five children.
The regime’s henchmen keep persecuting and torturing prisoners to the last moments and their transfer to solitary confinement for the implementation of death sentence is accompanied by beating and insults.
The notorious Ebrahim Raisi has publicly announced that he will stand as a candidate in the sham Presidential election.
In a letter addressed to the regime's Supreme Leader Khamenei on March 22, some 50 mullahs, members of the Assembly of Experts, requested his nomination. He had told other factions that he would run for office if he had Khamenei's approval.
War and crisis will continue as long as the Iranian regime is not evicted and the IRGC not expelled from Syria
The Iranian Resistance's President-elect Maryam Rajavi described as "a major war crime" the chemical attack on Idlib and the ruthless carnage of defenseless people, particularly the innocent children.
The need for referring the atrocities of the clerical regime to UN Security Council
On Friday March 24, 2017, the UN Human Rights Council adopted a resolution extending the mandate of the UN Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Iran for one more year. The resolution was adopted while the religious fascism ruling Iran and some of the major violators of human rights in every possible way tried to prevent the adoption of this resolution.
Call for their immediate release
Mohammad Sharafi, one of Iran’s Security Forces’ commanders declared that the suppressive forces arrested almost 1500 people during the Fire Festivities (State news agency of ISNA, March 15). Theses arrests indicate the authorities’ fearful reaction to Iranian youth who despite all the regime’s threatening warnings turned the Fire Festivities into a scene of their confrontation with the despotic regime as well as an opportunity for expressing their revulsion of the regime.
The Iranian regime hanged 18 prisoners over the past three days in various cities. On March 6, two young prisoners in the prison of Sari, two other prisoners, including a 70 year old man in Orumiyeh Central Prison and two others in the prison of Garmsar were hanged.
The day before, a prisoner was hanged in public in Buin Zahra (Qazvin province) and three in Ghezel Hessar Prison in Karaj. On March 4, eight prisoners were hanged in Rasht, Orumiyeh, Shahroud and Hamedan prisons. Two of the four prisoners executed in Rasht were women.
