ERIC VORUZ, a former member of the Swiss Federal Assembly, a former member of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe also expressed his support of the Iranian people's uprising.  

“I support firmly the protests of the Iranian people who want freedom and democracy in Iran. I love their courage facing the mullahs’ regime. I wish that this bloodthirsty regime disappears forever.” he wrote. 

“The UN Security Council must immediately intervene against the massacres of the protesters and hold the mullahs to account,” he added. 

The message of Mr. Nils de Dardel, former Swiss parliamentarian, lawyer:  

The extraordinary revolt in Iran is suppressed by murders, beatings, and imprisonment inflicted on thousands of victims. 

This massive crime committed by the mullahs and their militias must be stopped by the international community, by the strongest intervention of the States, in particular by Switzerland,” Mr. De Dardel continued. 

We must, without any reserve, support these demonstrators whose courage, intelligence and determination arouse our admiration and our total solidarity,” he said.

Christiane Perregaux University Professor, member of the Committee for Democracy and Secularism in Iran and one of the longstanding supporters of the Iranian people and their resistance also sent a message of solidarity. 

She wrote, I condemn the deadly repression suffered by the Iranian people for several days and salute their courage and their desire for political change. There are several hundred dead and thousands wounded - at least 10,000 people have been arrested.  

Among the victims, many young people and adolescents targeted by the snipers of the Iranian regime. I denounce the violence and barbarity with which this regime has treated the civilians and call on the United Nations to send urgent missions to Iran to investigate murders, wounded, prisoners. We also call on the High Commissioner for Human Rights, who must demand that fact-finding missions visit the country, a few weeks after the Universal Periodic Assessment of Iran was held in Geneva as part of the Human Rights Council,” she added.
