Anti-Iran Regime Protests in Brussels and London

By shahriar kia

Members and supporters of Iranian opposition group, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) held a demonstration in front of the European Commission in Brussels on Monday to call for Iran’s Ministry of Intelligence to added to the European Union’s terror black list; four months after an Iranian plot to blow up an opposition rally in Paris was foiled by European authorities.

In early October, French officials said that they had “no doubt” that Iran’s Ministry of Intelligence was behind the plot to attack the rally, especially after Iranian diplomat Assadollah Assadi was arrested for planning the terrorist attack.

Paulo Casaca, a former member of the European Parliament, said: “I was among the people who were there on June 30. So I can say that, even personally, I have a case here to the European External Action Service (EEAS) and there has not been a single word from the EEAS on the issue.”

Dr Jocelyn Scotts condemned Iran’s use of the death penalty and torture and noted that the Iranian people are protesting against this brutality.

While NCRI supporter Naghmeh Rajabi said: “There needs to be more pressure to bring a halt to all of these executions, especially the public hangings that are happening.

Children, people, normal people are walking in the streets and they see bodies hanging from cranes. That’s kind of becoming a normality in Iran and it is completely unacceptable in the twenty-first century.”

She advised that if the UK was going to keep doing business with Iran, then it should take action against its human rights abuses, but that the best solution would be regime change.
