Anglo-Iranians Urge UK to Support the Iran Protests
The Anglo-Iranian Communities in the UK supporters of the NCRI-MEK held a rally opposite Number 10 Downing Street on December 6, in support of the Iran protests
The Anglo-Iranian Communities in the United Kingdom and supporters of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) held a rally opposite Number 10 Downing Street on Friday, December 6, in support of the ongoing popular protests in Iran that have turned into an uprising against the clerical regime.
The protesters urged Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s government to press the United Nations to send intervene urgently to stop the massacre of protesters.
Mr. Malcolm Fowler, former President of the Birmingham Law Society, told the rally: “I support your call on the UN Secretary-general to convene an emergency meeting at the UN Security Council to hold the regime and its leaders to account for their crimes against humanity.”
“I support your cause for freedom and democracy and stand with the brave people of Iran in their struggle for legitimate change and to bring this appealing regime to justice for its atrocities including for the 1988 massacre,” he added.
He also expressed his support for Iranian opposition leader Mrs. Maryam Rajavi and said, “NCRI president-elect Maryam Rajavi has called on the UN to send a fact-finding mission without delay to investigate the extent of the killings and visit detention centers in Iran.”
Participants at the London rally backed the call by the NCRI President-elect, Maryam Rajavi, on the international community to condemn the clerical regime’s brutal crackdown on the anti-regime protesters and to act to hold its leaders to account for their atrocities and repression.
The participants held a banner which read “Down with Khamenei, Down with Rouhani,” referring to the regime’s Supreme Leader and President.
The People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) has released the names of 350 protesters out of more than 1000 killed by the regime’s security forces.
The Anglo-Iranian protesters urged the British Government to work with allies at the UN and the European Union to implement the following:
- condemn the horrendous mass killing by the Iranian regime and to take urgent action to stop this crime against humanity and secure the release all those arrested;
- ask the UN Secretary-General and relevant UN bodies to send a fact-finding mission without delay to investigate the extent of the killings and visit detention centers in Iran;
- ask the UN Security Council and its president to declare the massacre of the Iranian people by the regime as a crime against humanity, and to bring the heads of this regime and those responsible for this horrific crime to justice including the Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, the regime’s President Hassan Rouhani and other senior regime officials.
At least 1000 protesters have been shot and killed on the streets, over 4000 wounded, and over 12,000 have been arrested, according to the reports by the Resistance Units and the social network of the organized Iranian opposition, PMOI/MEK, in Iran.

With regards to the regime’s brutal crackdown, which has led to the death of at least 1000 protesters, the NCRI President-elect Maryam Rajavi has said: “The mullahs have seen themselves on the brink of collapse. They want to evade this fate by committing crimes.”
“The clerical regime in Iran is making every effort under various pretexts to conceal the true death toll. The UN must send a fact-finding mission without delay to investigate the deaths, the injured and those arrested and detained”, Mrs. Rajavi added.
