Kurdish organizations have united to demand an end to the 'inhumane' medical blockade of Camp Liberty in Iraq.
In Iraqi Kurdistan, 35 political, trade union and civil organizations issued a call to allow the free movement of goods to the camp that is home to members of the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MK) , the Kurdish website Media reported.
Iranian dissidents in Camp Liberty should have their personal protection weapons returned to them for self-defence following serious threats and attacks as the Iranian regime’s intervention in Iraq grows, the International Committee in Search of Justice (ISJ) has demanded.
Threats against the camp near Baghdad airport have escalated on a daily basis and the West must now act urgently to protect them, ISJ President Alejo Vidal-Quadras said.
He wrote in a statement: "Following serious terrorist threats by the Qods Force and the extremely slow resettlement of the residents, their personal protection weapons should be returned for self-defence.
Camp Liberty residents are being denied their fundamental health rights which has lead to the death of 22 Iranian dissidents, the British Medical Association has told Iraq.
In a letter to Iraqi PM Dr Haider al-Abadi, the BMA wrote: "Testimony that we have received from Amnesty International and other global human rights organisations suggests that the inmates of Camp Liberty are being subject to violations of their fundamental health rights.
Iraq must lift its 'merciless' medical blockade of Camp Liberty which has cost the lives of 22 Iranian dissidents, the European Iraqi Freedom Association has demanded.
The siege was put into place under former Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki in 2009, but is still in force today, the EIFA President Struan Stevenson said.
NCRI - A leading Iraqi member of parliament has condemned the 'torture, harassment and inhuman treatment' of Iranian dissidents in Camp Liberty.
Talal al-Zobaie , Chairman of the Parliament’s Integrity Commission, also urged his government to honor its promises to protect Liberty residents and allow them free access to lawyers and medical care.
Iranian dissidents in Camp Liberty have staged a protest at psychological torture by Iraqi guards who are broadcasting sound into the camp through giant loudspeakers.
One camp resident told the Al-Jazeera news channel on Wednesday: "We are protesting today the sound torture of Camp Liberty by Iraqi intelligence agents. For 45 days, agents of the Iranian regime that were stationed here during the previous Iraqi government have began torturing residents by broadcasting sound into the camp, closest to where the sick are housed."
Islamic Fundamentalism and Iran
Islamic Fundamentalism, which may manifest itself on the streets of France or Yemen and Syria, and its victims may be diverse, but it is a single issue confronting the globe. It may appear random or unplanned but it is in fact shrewdly promoted and sustained by a regime, which relies on the phenomenon for its very survival.
