NCRI - Misagh Yazdannejad is a young Iranian activist who recently left his country after spending more than nine years of his life in the jails of the Mullahs. He was attending a conference on 16 December at the Palais Brongniart in Paris on the Iranian subject, where he shared his experience under the rule of the religious fascism in Iran. Here is the text of his touching discourse at the conference titled, "The explosive situation of Iran, the mullahs' regime encircled by crises":
NCRI - Morteza Shams is a courageous student who rose up against the tyranny of the mullahs in Iran before being arrested and tortured for his beliefs. Active in the student community to denounce the fundamentalist regime, young Morteza took part in the 2009 popular uprising in Iran, where he was led to measure the impact of the PMOI/MEK fight for change. Having recently left his country, he participated on December 16 at an international conference in Paris titled, "The explosive situation of Iran, the regime of the mullahs surrounded by crises". Here is the text of his poignant speech:
Dear Ms Curtis,
It is regrettable that The Huffington Post has allowed its respected platform to be exploited by Massoud Khodabandeh to repeat the Iranian regime’s baseless accusations against Iran’s democratic opposition group, the People’s Mojahedin Organisation of Iran (PMOI/MEK).
A review of Mr Khodabandeh’s Huffington Post Blog profile reveals that his latest article, Albania’s Modern Slavery Problem Alienates Europe, is not his first written to attack the PMOI. I understand that in the last years he has published more than a dozen articles expressing similar opinions.
The Following text is the response of the foreign affairs committee of the National Council of Resistance of Iran to an article published by the Evening Standard on December 7, 2017.
This response was submitted to the newspaper on December 8, but regrettably, despite repeated follow-ups by this Commission. Evening Standard has refused to publish it:
NCRI - Members of the European Parliament joined together on Wednesday 6th December to discuss Iran and the current issues that affect the European Union. Gérard Deprez, the President of Friends of a Free Iran (FOFI) and member of European Parliament, opened the conference entitled “EU Policy on Iran, Human Rights, Regional Conduct, Missile Program”.
Deprez spoke about the alarming number of executions that are taking place in Iran and emphasised that this has been going on for more than three decades. Iran, despite numerous calls to improve its human rights situation, has done nothing to change or improve it.
NCRI - A panel of policy experts met on Friday to discuss the dismal condition on human rights under the Iranian Regime and concluded that the international community needs to hold Iran accountable for past and ongoing abuses; specifically the 1988 massacre of 30,000 political prisoners, in which senior members of the Regime (including many still serving in President Hassan Rouhani’s cabinet) were heavily involved.
NCRI - "Today is the time to demand at all levels an investigation into this massacre," said Bernard Kouchner at a conference on Tuesday at the city hall of the 5th district in Paris. He was speaking at an exhibition-conference held on November 28, at the City Hall of the 5th arrondissement of Paris on the theme of the "massacre of thousands of political prisoners in Iran in 1988 – ‘Right to the truth’ for families of victims ".
NCRI - The Iranian Regime has reportedly drawn a red line on anyone discussing the events of 1988, in which 30,000 political prisoners were executed in a summer of blood on the orders of then-Supreme Leader Ruhollah Khomeini.
As such, we must not stop talking about it. We cannot forget or allow others to forget about the massacre that wiped out tens of thousands of people in just a few short months for no other reason than supporting the People’s Mojahedin of Iran/Mujahedin-e Khalq (PMOI/MEK).
