In the 1990s, I and my distinguished colleague Charlotte Ponticelli had the privilege of working with Dr. Clyde Snow, one of the world’s foremost experts in forensic anthropology, who played an instrumental role in bringing justice to Argentina by uncovering the mass graves left behind by the country’s “Dirty War.” His actions and investigation helped uncover the truth about what was an incredibly deadly series of crimes carried out over nearly a decade. Holding the regime in Argentina accountable set a valuable precedent and demonstrated the global community’s commitment to upholding justice and human rights, which must be maintained today.
On Thursday, October 5, on the occasion of the International Teacher's Day, at least 28 cities in 20 provinces of the country witnessed protest gatherings of the education staff. In Tehran, incumbent and retired education staff along with labor activists, retired workers and other retirees and families of political prisoners gathered in front of the regime's planning and budget organization. The presence of about 3000 women education staff frustrated of the mullahs’ tyranny in the gathering was impressive. The rallying slogans were: "teacher stand up to eliminate discrimination," "the imprisoned teachers should be freed," "Never has a nation seen such injustice," "one less embezzlement, our problems will be resolved," "Fair wage, is our certain right "and" Our tables are empty of food, while you continue your lies."
NCRI - The retired teachers and educators rallied in front of the Management and Planning Organization of Iran on teacher's day, IlNA News reported On October 5, 2017. Thousands of teachers participated in the rally at the invitation of the Coordinating Council of Teacher's Union in Tabriz, Khoramabad, Shahrekord, Mashhad, Gilan, Yazd, and Khuzestan. The former political prisoners and retired workers also joined the demonstration in Tehran as well.
NCRI - In March 2015, the civil war in Yemen started after Houthi rebels seized Sana’a, the country’s capital, and other parts of the nation. The Houthi rebels have been up against the government of President Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi – an internationally recognised government that is supported by a coalition of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bahrain, Egypt, Sudan, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia.
NCRI - It is being reported that the new US policy on Iran will address several of the most worrying threats posed by the Regime, including their nuclear programme, their destruction of the Middle East and their personal terror squad, the Revolutionary Guards.
While congratulating the noble teachers and education staff of Iran on the occasion of the International Teacher’s Day, the Education Committee of the National Council of Resistance of Iran praises the teachers’ struggle and emphasizes its decisive role in the popular struggle of the Iranian people to overthrow the anti-human clerical regime and establish democracy and freedom in Iran.
NCRI - The Iranian Regime is so much more dangerous than North Korea and the world must recognise this, according to a political scientist who specialises in the Regime.
Dr. Majid Rafizadeh wrote an op-ed for Arab News, entitled Iran is not the Middle East’s North Korea — it is worse, in which he laid out that analogies between the two rogue regimes often fail to account for the destructive role that Iran plays in the Middle East as well as other incredible differences.
NCRI - Saudi Arabian King Salman bin Abdul Aziz harshly criticized Iran on his first visit to Russia, which has close relations with the Islamic republic. Alliance News reported from Moscow on October 5, 2017.
Iran must refrain from interfering in Middle Eastern conflicts because such involvement has destabilized the region, King Salman told Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to comments carried by the Interfax news agency.
NCRI - While Donald Trump has reportedly been keen to decertify Iran’s compliance with the 2015 nuclear agreement ever since he took office (and even before), his advisors have always stepped in to stop him at both of the previous certification deadlines.
However, in the run-up to the October 15 deadline, all that appears to have changed and his national security team are now reportedly advising him to decertify Iran.
