The inter-parliamentary group "Friends of a Free Iran" at the European
Parliament held a meeting today in Strasbourg. Dozens of MEPs attended
the session, in which a video tape of the execution of three victims in
the city of Khoramabad, west of Iran, was aired.
Iranian American communities of Texas organized a gathering in
Houston entitled "Appeasement, Dagger to the Heart of Human Rights".
The gathering condemned the Human Rights Watch's discredited report
against the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran.
The recent report by New York-based Human Rights Watch against
the main Iranian opposition group continues to draw expressions of
dismay and astonishment from political and legal personalities, human
rights activists, and Iranian exiles across the world. The following
are excerpts of some of the letters sent to HRW and copied to the
Foreign Affairs Committee of the National Council of Resistance of Iran:
Iran, In front of me Maryam Rajavi’s face is everywhere. I met this sea
of people in golden yellow standing here in support of her. It is a
wonderful sight. By looking at Maryam Rajavi's calm, confident, and
compassionate face, you see the face of the future. She will return to
Tehran and so will you.
Message by Lord Clarke of Hampstead to Iranian gathering on June 17 anniversary - Paris
Here we are witnessing the second anniversary of the storming of the residence of Maryam Rajavi and her colleagues in Paris.
Two years without proper charge being made. Two years of uncertainty,
two years of anxiety of those people wrongly being accused of doing
things against the law in France.
A report from our correspondent in United Nations - Geneva
For years, the Iranian authorities have constantly and increasingly
intervened with the United Nations officials to have the opponents or
the Iranian activists and defenders of the human rights close to the
National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), banned from the United
Nations bodies, and most particularly from the Human Rights Commission
where these activists have always intervened to inform the
international community of the aggravated violations of human rights
and the reality of the situation in their country.
