Conference in UK Parliament on women’s rights in Iran and struggle for democratic change.

Conference in UK Parliament: Cross party MPs, Peers and prominent jurists and women’s rights personalities discuss women’s rights in Iran and what the UK Gov’t must do to support the struggle for democratic change that is led by women.


 

Remarks by Sir David Amess MP at the IWD 2020 Each for Equal in the Parliament: UK Gov’t should back the popular uprisings in Iran against the regime, support Maryam Rajavi and her 10-point democratic plan for Iran as a viable alternative to the current religious dictatorship.

Dr. Matthew Offord MP: There’s a consensus among MPs and Peers calling on the UK Gov’t to support the democratic aspirations of the Iranian people and NCRI.

Prof Lord Alton at Conference in UK Parliament: As part of an international pressure, UK Gov’t should take immediate steps at UN Security Council to declare leaders of the clerical regime as perpetrators of crimes against humanity for decades of systematic human rights abuses.
This must include accountability for regime officials for 1988 massacre of 30000 political prisoners. If that it is vetoed and blocked, the UK Gov’t should help establish a regional tribunal to bring those responsible to justice.

Sir David Amess MP: UK Gov’t should revise its current policy on Iran and back the popular uprisings in Iran against corruption, misogyny and repression, and support Madame Rajavi, and her 10-point democratic.

As Madame Rajavi, said, “failure of the regime to intimidate people to go to the polls reflects the Iran’ian people’s homage to the 1,500 martyrs of Nov 2019 uprising and portends of subsequent uprisings.

Hon. David Jones MP at Conference in UK Parliament: I believe the brave women of Iran should be recognised especially in 2020 IWD celebration given their extraordinary and prominent role in the anti-regime protests the world has been witnessing since the late 2017.

Dr. Matthew Offord MP:  The leadership and energy that women bring to the protests in Iran and to the organised opposition, PMOI, and the NCRI is a determining factor for their final victory over this brutal dictatorship.

Dr. Matthew Offord MP: Women and girls refuse to give in to regime’s suppression and discrimination that rescues them into 2nd class citizens. The UK Gov’t must back the struggle for change in Iran, which is led by women and Maryam Rajavi.

Baroness Verma at Conference in UK Parliament: Maryam Rajavi is an iconic figure for all of us and Gov’ts and ministers around the world should show the same courage and speak up for women’s rights not only in Iran but around the world.

Baroness Eaton DBE at IWD2020 Conference in UK Parliament: We call upon all human rights loving individuals, democratic governments throughout the world and the UK gov’t to support these brave women and their legitimate opposition NCRI, and its great leader Maryam Rajavi.

Baroness Eaton DBE at IWD2020 Conference in UK Parliament: More and more women and girls are joining the protests and the Iranian Resistance movement against the regime. UK gov’t to support these brave women and their legitimate opposition NCRI for change.

Iran news in brief, February 25, 2020

Iran, February 24, 2020—Following the coronavirus outbreak in China, most countries cancelled flights to this country to prevent the spread of the deadly virus.

However, Iran’s regime, careless about the risks to the health of the Iranian people, did not take any precautionary measures.

Mahan Air, owned by the terrorist-designated Revolutionary Guards (IRGC), not only continued its flights to China, but also engaged in the transportation of Chinese passengers.

As a result, Iran is now in the grip of the outbreak of the virus in several cities. The regime has officially acknowledged 12 deaths and 64 infections, but local reports indicate that the figures are much higher.
