MEK Iran: Anglo-Iranian Protest
Anglo-Iranian communities in the United Kingdom, as well as supporters of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) and the Mojahedin-e Khalq (MEK), held a protest demonstration on Monday, calling on world leaders to halt Iran’s systematic impunity.
Climate Change Conference (COP26)
This event took place in Glasgow at the same time as the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26). The event and its members also drew attention to Ebrahim Raisi, Tehran’s new president, being involved in the massacre of over 30,000 political prisoners in 1988.
They also emphasized Raisi’s and other Iranian top officials’ roles in destroying the country’s ecology.
Raisi was supposed to speak during COP26
Raisi was supposed to speak during COP26. He backed out after a group of former political prisoners, survivors, and families of the massacre’s victims filed a legal complaint against him in the UK and Scotland under the UK’s universal jurisdiction, requesting his arrest for “crime against humanity” and “genocide” if he attended the UN Summit in Glasgow.
Struan Stevenson, former Scottish MEP and Coordinator of the Campaign for Iran Change (CIC), Mr. Hossain Abedini, deputy director of the NCRI’s UK representative office, and leaders of several Anglo-Iranian organizations also attended Monday’s rally.
Ebrahim Raisi if he dared to set foot in Scotland
“When we called on the Scottish Police to arrest Ebrahim Raisi if he dared to set foot in Scotland to attend the COP26 summit, he immediately chickened out and announced that he wasn’t coming,” Mr. Stevenson added, referring to Raisi’s decision not to attend the COP26.
Raisi “realized, unlike his predecessors, that he is unable to travel freely to the West, or indeed to any civilized nation, due to his pariah status as the ‘Butcher of Tehran,'” according to Mr. Stevenson.
Mr. Stevenson stated that the solution to Iran’s issues, as well as the Middle East and global security crises, “is the downfall of this regime by the Iranian people and their resistance, for a free and democratic Iran, with a government for, by, and of the people.”
The religious dictatorship in Iran has not only brought death, misery
“During its 40-year rule, the religious dictatorship in Iran has not only brought death, misery, and repression to millions of Iranians but has also completely destroyed Iran’s environment and plundered the country’s natural resources,” Mr. Hossain Abedini added.
“Raisi was a member of the Death Commission in the 1988 massacre to implement Khomeini’s fatwa to execute 30,000 PMOI members and sympathizers who remained loyal to the pro-democracy opposition,” Mr. Abedini reminded the audience.
The massive November 2019 uprising
He also mentioned Raisi’s role as the regime’s judicial chief in torturing over 12,000 protestors arrested during the massive November 2019 uprising.
“The Iranian people have clearly demonstrated their demands and their resolve for change,” he said, referring to the country’s ongoing protests. They oppose the system in its entirety and are prepared to overthrow it.” He also stated that “regime change in Iran is unavoidable due to the Iranian people’s resistance.” A free and democratic Iran is extremely close to becoming a reality.”
