More International Support to the Ongoing Uprising in Iran

As the nationwide protests in Iran continue there have been further international reactions to the regime's brutality in oppressing the Iranian people, and the people's bravery in continuing their protests.

On Thursday, November 21, 2019, the United States Vice President Mike Pence voiced Washington’s support for the Iranian people’s uprising. 

“As Iranians take to the streets in protest, the Ayatollahs in Tehran continue to use violence and imprisonment to oppress their people. The United States’ message is clear: the American people stand with the people of Iran,” he said. 

 

Andrew Sheer, leader of Canada's Conservative Party, emphasized his support for the Iranian people and called on the Canadian government to blacklist the regime's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) which is suppressing the Iranian people. "Conservatives stand in solidarity with the people of Iran who are bravely confronting their tyrannical government. I continue to call on Trudeau to list the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps as a terrorist entity and impose Magnitsky sanctions on Iran’s human rights offenders," he wrote on Twitter. 

Nikki Haley, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, expressed her support for the Iranian people's uprising on Twitter, "106 protesters in 21 cities were killed over the course of the protests in Iran. Hundreds of people have been injured & more than a thousand arrested. We should all stand with the Iranian people who desperately want a better life away from the Iranian regime." 

Ann Linde, Foreign Minister of Sweden, reacted to the regime's ongoing violence and wrote, "Horrified by death tolls in Iran. Nothing can justify this violence. Iranian ambassador to Sweden notified of our views today." 

British lawmaker Roger Godsiff expressed his support for the Iran protests on Twitter, "The Iranian govt is cracking down on protesters by inciting violence & killing people. And they are trying to hide it by cutting off the internet & phones. An uprising in Iran was inevitable with people turning against one of the most repressive regimes in the world." 

Anna Fotyga, Member of the European Parliament from Poland and the former Polish Minister of Foreign Affairs, condemned the Iranian regime crackdown on protesters and expressed her full support for the Iran protests.  

"1/2 I strongly condemn the lethal force used by the regime in Teheran against the people of Iran. The democratic world cannot cooperate with the regime responsible for the death of more than 100 people. Barbaric pacification of protesters and shutdown of the internet shows that the regime." She added, "2/2 trying to secure its personal power and weather has abandoned the people of #Iran. The personal responsibility of Ayatollahs and members of the Revolutionary Guards for the bloodshed is clear and justice will be delivered. I call the VP/HR for strong and firm action."
