Former political prisoners of Iran living in the United Kingdom gathered outside Downing street last Saturday to draw attention to the multiple human rights violations that are being carried out by Tehran, on the eve of the re-establishing of the British Embassy in the Iranian Capital, the Church Times reported this week.

NCRI - Iranians in Denmark and Holland have staged rallies in support of human rights and democracy in Iran.
Supporters of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran, PMOI (Mujahedin e Khalq, MEK), in the Danish capital Copenhagen and the city of Aarhus on Saturday held protests condemning the recent spike in executions in Iran.
They urged the international community to hold the mullahs’ regime to account over its atrocious human rights record in Iran.
The mullahs’ regime in Iran has to date executed more than 120,000 political prisoners, the vast majority members and supporters of the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran, PMOI (Mujahedin-e Khalq, MEK).
Through tremendous effort the Iranian Resistance has managed to collate and publish a partial list of the 120,000 victims of political executions in Iran under the mullahs' regime.
The first volume of the ‘book of martyrs’ contains the list of names and particulars of 20,000 members and supporters of the PMOI who have made the ultimate sacrifice in the struggle for freedom from the clutches of religious tyranny in Iran.
The leaders of the clerical regime, including Ruhollah Khomeini, Ali Khamenei, Ali-Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, Mohammad Khatami, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Hassan Rouhani and other senior ministers and officials have played a direct role in this massacre.

There's an alternate solution to the nuclear and terror threat the Iranian regime poses in the Middle East - and that's for the United States to support the existing Resistance movement against the regime inside Iran, retired U.S. General Hugh Shelton, the former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, tells Newsmax TV.
In an interview with "The Hard Line" host Ed Berliner on Monday, Gen. Shelton, who served from 1997 to 2001 as Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman and is author of "Without Hesitation: The Odyssey of an American Warrior," says Washington has "got to support" the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) "if we want them to be able to move forward."
NCRI - The Iranian-American community in Los Angeles on Sunday gathered to remember the victims of the 1988 massacre of political prisoners in Iran.
Some 30,000 political prisoners affiliated with the main opposition group People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran, PMOI (Mujahedin-e Khalq, MEK), were summarily executed in the summer of 1988, soon after Ruhollah Khomeini was forced to accept a cease-fire in his eight-year war with Iraq.

The international community ought to help facilitate the demise of the mullahs’ regime in Iran in order to guarantee that Tehran does not become a nuclear weapons state, Sir David Amess, a Member of Parliament from the United Kingdom, wrote on Thursday.
“The undeniably weak nuclear deal is a step backward with respect to the type of concessions we could have gotten from Tehran if we had stuck to our guns. In that sense, it is a failure. But you can fail one test and still pass the entire course, and I remain hopeful that that will be the situation when Western policy, toward Iran, in particular that of American enters into new phases, especially after the end of the Obama presidency,” Mr. Amess wrote for Business Insider.
Iranian supporters of the main opposition group People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) living in Canada rallied over the weekend against human rights abuses and rising executions in Iran.
They declared their support for the political platform of Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran.
