The Mounting Global Support of the Ongoing Anti-regime Iran Protests- Nr. 5 


The nationwide uprising in Iran that was sparked by the killing of a 22-years-young girl and highlighted the regime’s gender apartheid quickly escalated into a major revolution that is now calling for the end of the entire clerical establishment. 

Already into the third month, Iran’s revolution has claimed the support of many world leaders, legislators, NGOs, human rights activists, and celebrities around the world. As Iranians continue to suffer and get killed by the murderous regime, they increasingly need support and recognition worldwide, most notably their right to legitimate self-defense against Tehran’s killing machine. 

Some of the international community’s statements are reflected below.

The Foreign Ministers of Australia, Canada and New Zealand issued a joint statement to condemn the execution of protesters in Iran. The statement read in part: “We are watching a dark chapter in Iran’s recent history unfold and we are responding in defence of all of its citizens. The Iranian regime’s brutality against its own people, in particular its women and girls, is unrelenting, and the situation is only worsening.”

“The people of Iran have not given up hope as they courageously demand full respect for their human rights, despite the threats against them.”

“Iran’s security forces persist with draconian methods to ruthlessly suppress peaceful protestors, including the use of lethal force and senseless violence against women and children.”

According to Arabnews, Italy’s PM, political parties slam Iran’s repression of protesters. In a speech in the Chamber of Deputies attended by Arab News, Meloni recalled that on Monday Iran executed a second man — in defiance of an international outcry over the use of capital punishment — in connection with protests that have shaken the regime for months.

“I say this clearly. The use of force against peaceful demonstrators, against women, is unjustifiable and above all unacceptable,” she said.

In a statement, the European Union expressed its support for “the fundamental aspiration of the people of Iran for a future where their universal human rights and fundamental freedoms are respected, protected and fulfilled”.

The statement read in part: “The European Union acknowledges the leading role of women and youth in calling for the defence of these norms and values. The European Union strongly condemns the widespread, brutal and disproportionate use of force by the Iranian authorities against peaceful protesters, including women and children, leading to the loss of hundreds of lives, in clear breach of the fundamental principles enshrined in international law.  The right to peaceful assembly must be ensured.  The European Union condemns restrictions on communications, including Internet shutdowns, and calls upon Iran to ensure the right to freedom of expression, including freedom to seek, receive and share information and ideas, online and offline.  The European Union urges Iranian authorities to uphold their international obligations under international law, including the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) and the Convention on the Rights of the Child, to both of which Iran is a party.”

The Governments of the United States of America and Canada issued a statement on the Human Rights Situation in Iran. The statement read in part: “Today, we have taken coordinated sanctions actions against Iranian officials connected to human rights abuses, including those committed as part of the ongoing brutal crackdown aimed at denying the Iranian people their human rights and fundamental freedoms.  Our sanctions come as Iran’s leadership continues to perpetrate violence against its people without relent.  Security forces reportedly have killed hundreds of peaceful protestors, including dozens of children, and have arbitrarily detained thousands of Iranians in their effort to silence the people of Iran.  We are gravely alarmed by recent reports that Iranian authorities are using sexual violence as a heinous means of protest suppression.  Iranian courts have also now begun issuing harsh sentences to advocates and protestors ranging from lengthy prison sentences to the death penalty.”

The Governments of the United States of America, Australia, Canada, Chile, Iceland, New Zealand, the Republic of Korea, Sweden, and the United Kingdom issued a joint statement that called for action on gender-based online harassment and abuse on standing with women and girls of Iran.

Amnesty International issued a statement entitled: “Authorities covering up their crimes of child killings by coercing families into silence”.

The statement partly read: “The authorities have not only condemned families of children killed to a lifetime of inconsolable sadness, but they have also inflicted extreme mental anguish upon them through cruel restrictions on burials, commemorations, and relentless intimidation aimed at enforcing silence. These practices violate the absolute prohibition on cruel, inhuman, and degrading treatment or punishment,” said Heba Morayef, Amnesty International’s Regional Director for the Middle East and North Africa.”

“The US Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Wednesday approved a bipartisan resolution reaffirming U.S. support for Iranian protesters and calling on the Biden administration to impose additional sanctions on Iranian officials and entities responsible for repressing the protests,” the Hill wrote.

“It is my hope that Congressional approval of this bipartisan, bicameral resolution will help amplify the voices of the hundreds of thousands of women and men of Iran who are protesting against the brutality of one of the world’s most repressive regimes,” Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.), who chairs the committee, said in a statement.

United States State Department spokesman Ned Price told reporters during his Press Briefing: The courage of the Iranian people is an inspiration to the world, especially the courage of the women, girls, youth of Iran, who are leading these peaceful protests. Iran’s students and children are the very people who should be the future of their country. Instead, authorities are attacking them and arresting them by the thousands.

United States State Department spokesman Ned Price told reporters during his Press Briefing: “Early last month, Vice President Harris outlined our intention to work with partners around the world to remove Iran as a member of the Commission on the Status of Women. We are committed to removing Iran from the commission because it is, simply put, the right thing to do. It’s the proper thing to do. It shows that we stand with women in Iran and around the world, including from a variety of civil society groups that have led this push who are asking for Iran to be removed from the Commission on the Status of Women because of Tehran’s very egregious actions against Iran’s women and girls.”

“When it comes to the broader abuses that we’ve seen on the part of the Iranian regime, we have denounced the draconian sentences that have been handed down. We denounced them in the strongest possible terms. Unfortunately, this is just really the latest tactic that we’ve seen from the Iranian regime with its ongoing, brutal crackdown on what can only be described as peaceful protesters – individuals who are exercising their universal rights. These sentences, we know, are meant to intimidate people, to suppress dissent. They are – they simply underscore Iran’s leadership’s fears of its own people and the fact that Iran’s government fears the truth.”

“As this violent crackdown on peaceful protesters continues, the Iranian regime should know that the world is watching. This goes back to the fact-finding mission that you referenced just a moment ago. We are committed to supporting the Iranian people and imposing costs on those responsible for the brutal crackdown. We’ve been able to do that now through multiple rounds of sanctions. We’re continuing to work with partners around the world to find ways to confront Iran’s human rights abuses, and we’re doing so both in public and in private.”

Amnesty International issued a statement and called on the International community not to be deceived by dubious claims of the Iranian regime about the disbanding ‘morality police’.

The statement read in part: “The Iranian authorities’ vague and conflicting statements on the supposed disbanding of Iran’s so-called “morality police” must not deceive the international community about the continuing violence against women and girls embedded in compulsory veiling laws and fuelled by ongoing impunity for those violently enforcing them, said Amnesty International today.”
