Universal Periodic Review on the situation of human rights in Iran-November 2019

On Tuesday, November 8, 2019, 111 countries participated in the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) of the human rights situation in Iran. The UPR is a peer-review mechanism whereby the United Nations member states can make recommendations to governments that are under review.

The Working Group in Geneva on Tuesday had a lot to say about the regime’s treatment of women, the execution of minors, the use of torture, and overall human rights abuses, making a total of 329 recommendations to the Iranian regime.

The recommendations made by the Working Group of the UPR were adopted on November 12th at a meeting of the U.N. Human Rights Council. The MEK has reported previously that the U.N. has condemned the Iranian regime 65 times over the last four decades for its human rights abuses.

Recommendations Made

A number of countries called on Iran to ratify the

Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW).

Denmark, Estonia, and Moldova recommended that the regime ratify the Convention against Torture and other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment.

Germany called on Iran to

“ratify core international human rights conventions, in particular, the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment and the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women.”

Germany also called on the regime to

“establish a formal moratorium on the death penalty. In particular, cease all planned executions of juvenile offenders and prohibit the imposition of the death penalty for crimes committed by minors.”

Albania called on the Iranian regime to cooperate with all U.N. Special Rapporteurs who wish to visit the country.

Sweden agreed, saying that Iran must “fully cooperate with and grant immediate and unfettered access for the Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Islamic Republic of Iran.”

Belgium recommended that Iran should

“abolish the death penalty at least for crimes committed by persons under 18 years of age, in accordance with its obligations under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the Convention on the Rights of the Child, and commute all death sentences for juvenile offenders.”

The United States called on the Iranian regime to immediately end the use of torture and to credibly investigate and prosecute all allegations of torture.

Ukraine called on Iran to

“remove all national law provisions that allow for punishments that amount to torture or cruel and degrading treatment.”

Australia said Iran must

“Immediately investigate all allegations involving the torture and other ill-treatment of those arrested or detained during the demonstrations in December 2017 and hold those responsible to account.”

Australia also called on the regime to

 “guarantee the rights to freedom of expression, association, and assembly, and release political prisoners, including women’s rights activists, labor rights activists, environmentalists, scholars, lawyers and journalists, detained for exercising these rights.”

The United Kingdom called on Iran to

“Immediately demonstrate that all detainees in prison are neither tortured nor subject to cruel or inhumane treatment or punishment.”

Switzerland called on the Iranian regime to

“release all persons detained for exercising their rights to freedom of expression, association, and peaceful assembly, and repeal or amend laws and other provisions criminalizing or restricting the exercise of those rights.”

Argentina said Iran must

“guarantee freedom of expression, particularly of men and women human rights defenders and journalists, and repeal legal provisions that affect these rights.”

Protests Spread Across Iranian Cities after Gasoline Prices Triple

petrol price uprisins in iran

Iran Protests over the hike in gasoline prices, the corruption and the repressive policies of the Iranian regime-November 16, 2019

Iranians took to the streets on Friday to protest gasoline prices after the cost of gas tripled. Protests began to escalate on Friday afternoon, and by Friday evening they had spread to more cities.

The people of Iran, 80 percent of whom live below the poverty line, are furious about the latest example of the plundering of the nation’s resources by the clerical regime. While many workers have had to resort to rummaging through public garbage cans to find food or selling their own organs to provide for their families, the regime and their cronies live in luxury using the wealth that belongs to the Iranian people.

Protests on Friday Afternoon

Iranians staged protests in a number of Iranian cities, with the help of the MEK’s Resistance Units. On Friday afternoon the protests grew in various cities in the southwestern province of Khuzestan.

In the cities of Ahvaz, Khorramshahr, Andimeshk, Dezful, Behbahan, and Mahshahr, protesters chanted anti-regime slogans and set tires on fire to block streets and highways.

Protests on Friday Evening

By Friday evening, the protests had gained momentum as more people joined the demonstrations taking place and additional protests began.

Protests in Ahvaz and other cities in Khuzestan took a dramatic turn when the State Security Force attacked the protesters, breaking the windshields of their vehicles. Ahvazi youth pushed back against the attack and sat down on the street, forcing them to retreat. The young people blocked the Mullah Thani Expressway, chanting, “Let go of Syria, think of us!” and “Have no fear, we are all together!”

Iranian youth have been a major force in the Iranian Resistance, and they have been instrumental in joining the MEK in fighting against the mullahs’ tyranny.

The regime placed the State Security Force, the Ministry of Intelligence and Security, the Judiciary and other suppressive forces in various cities on high alert five days ago in anticipation of massive protests. The country has been on the verge of widespread revolt since the 2017/2018 uprising, and the regime’s answer to the unrest has been to increase its suppression.

In Mashhad, protesters rallied at the Vakil-Abad Expressway, switching off their cars and blocking the highway. The protesters chanted, “Dictator shame on you, let go of the country!” Rouhani shame on you, let go of the country!” “Death to Rouhani!” and “Our silence betrays Iran!” They also carried signs which read, “We will never again buy gasoline, one hand does make much noise.”

In the city of Hashtgerd in Karaj, just west of Tehran, people protested the rise in gas prices by driving their cars in the streets. People held similar protests in Shiraz, Karaj, and Sirjan.

Maryam Rajavi’s Response

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), saluted the brave protesters in Mashhad, Shiraz, Karaj, Sirjan, Ahvaz, and other Iranian cities for rising up against the corrupt and criminal regime. She encouraged the youth of Iran to join the protesters in their fight.

While the Iranian regime stays engulfed in a series of fatal crises, MEK‘s resistance unites mount their activities across the country.

Detailing some activities of the MEK’s units, the Secretariat of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) released a statement on November 7, 2019.

The statement reads: ” During the first week of November 2019, despite suppressive measures by the clerical regime, the Resistance Units hung and posted large banners carrying pictures of Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), and Mr. Massoud Rajavi, as well as banners containing their messages in expressways and public locations in Tehran (including in Saveh and Tehran Pars expressways) and in a number of cities, including Mashhad (Khorassan Razavi), Sa’di Township (West Azerbaijan), Ardakan (Yazd), Shorkhrood (Mazandaran), Rasht and Fumanat (Gilan), as well as Golestan, Qom and Hamedan provinces.”

Referring to the resistance units that joined together in a number of cities holding placards, the statement highlights the writings on the placards as: ““With Maryam Rajavi, we can and we must build a new Iran”, “With the expansion and combining Resistance Units we will form units of the Liberation Army,” “Resistance Units are the catalyst in perpetuating the uprisings and guaranteeing their victory,” “Expand Resistance Units in schools,” “Turn every school into a Resistance Unit,” “Rise to continue the uprisings and free Iran from the occupation of the mullahs,” “Freedom is the greatest lesson for Iranian youths,” We can and we must turn every school into a Resistance Unit,” “Expand Resistance Units in Schools,” “Freedom and victory are in your hands,” “With Maryam Rajavi we will take back Iran,” and “Resistance Units, the catalyst to continue the uprisings.”

Dramatic Acceleration of MEK's Units Activities

In the beginning of the school year, the resistance unit’s activities increased in many cities in Iran.

Since the beginning of October, Iran witnessed a remarkable expansion of the MEK resistance unit’s activities, including setting fire to the billboards of the Iranian regime’s leaders. Despite the suppressive measures by the security forces in Iran, the defiant youth accelerate their protests against the regime. During this period of time, the MEK resistance units torched the billboards of Khomeini and Khamenei and also the signs of the Basij (the regime’s paramilitary suppressive forces affiliated to the IRGC) centers in Tehran, Shiraz, Khoy, Bandarabbass, Maku, Lahijan, Orumiyeh, Kermanshah, Zahedan, and Khoramabad.

The resistance units of the MEK hung the posters of Massoud Rajavi, Leader of the Iranian Resistance, and Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), in many cities across the country.

Simultaneously, resistance against the religious dictatorial regime ruling Iran expanded in Tehran, Shiraz, Arak, Haft Tapeh, and Lordegan; all supported by the Iranian people particularly college and high-school students.

Following the beginning of the school year, protests by the students resumed in many colleges and universities in Iran.

At the University of Tehran, and Art & Architect College in Mazandaran students held a protest gathering on 22 October 2019. Students of the Science & Industry University in Tehran protested against food poisoning of students on the university campus.

MEK as the main opposition in Iran through its activities both on the ground and in social media has had the most tangible impact on the Iranian people. Many protests and protest actions and gatherings are inspired and led by the MEK. Iranian people consider the MEK as the only hope for a better future. They find the ten-point plan of Mrs. Maryam Rajavi as a platform for a free Iran.

The MEK is the most organized movement in Iran’s recent history. In June 1981, just two and a half years after the 1979 revolution, the MEK managed a demonstration in Tehran in which 500,000 people participated. Now, the resistance units of the MEK, are active in almost all of Iran’s 31 provinces.

Dr. Maria Ryan, CEO of Cottage Hospital, said at an international conference in Ashraf3:

“You’re really organized. And that’s important for people to see because as we move the regime out in Iran, it’s going to take a lot of work to put up a government and stand it up. And this is how I feel your strength is coming through — you’re thinking about the future, you’re organizing and you’re disciplined. I’m very impressed by this.”

Activities of MEK's resistance units2

MEK’s activities in Iran: Posting posters of Massoud Rajavi and Maryam Rajavi in Tehran, Mashhad, Kerman, and Ilam.

Activities of MEK's resistance units2

On the anniversary of appointing Mrs. Maryam Rajavi as the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), MEK’s resistance units expand their activities in Iran.

Bellow find a quick look at these activities.

Ilam:

Eastern province of Ilam, resistance units of the MEK hanged two banners of Massoud Rajavi and Maryam Rajavi near Jaghasabz Park. One banner reads: ” Stand up for toppling Velayat-e Faqih’s regime” and the other reads: “Down with Khamenei, Hail to Rajavi”

Tehran:

Members of the MEK’s resistance units in Tehran, the Capital, hanged a banner of Maryam Rajavi in Niavaran Highway. These words appeared on the banner:

Maryam Rajavi: “We can and we must overthrow the Velayat-e Faqih’s regime”

A banner of Maryam Rajavi with the same words was also hung over a bridge in Damavand Highway by another MEK resistance unit in Tehran.

Mashhad:

In Mashhad, a resistance unit of MEK posted a banner of Massoud Rajavi in Honarestan St. The banner reads: “Down with Velayat-e Faqih, Long live Rajavi”

Kerman

Resistance units of MEK hanged a banner of Maryam Rajavi. The banner reads: “Stand up for overthrowing the Velayat-e Faqih regime ”

MEK also reported that resistance units in Isfahan wrote resistance’s slogans on the street walls in this city, such as: “Iran Rajavi, Rajavi Iran”. In the city of Bandar Abbass MEK’s resistance units wrote: ” Democracy, Freedom, with Maryam Rajavi”.

In the city of Qazvin, MEK’s resistance units wrote on the walls: “Down with Khamenei.”

In the Southern city of Hendijan, MEK resistance units destroyed the symbols of the religious fascism ruling Iran.

The multiplication of MEK’s resistance units’ activities spread panic throw the Iranian regime and its officials, so that, they crossed the regime’s red-line, talking about the Mujahedin-e Khalq (PMOI/MEK) in public. Talking about MEK in State-run TV channels and media is not surprising anymore.

The resistance units of MEK play a crucial role in mobilizing and inspiring people against tyranny in Iran. Torching the symbols of the Iranian regime in public is witnessed more than ever before. Along with protests and gatherings against the regime across the country on a daily basis, activities of resistance units are shaking the dictatorial regime ruling Iran.

The mullahs hopelessly try to prevent a popular uprising and thwart the expansion of resistance units by using internal suppression and external sponsorship of terrorism. They seek to contain the deep-seated anger within the society at their disastrous and inhuman rule. However, their measures are in vain and we are witnessing the expansion of both public protests and activities of the MEK’s resistance units.

Iran’s Youth Torch Symbols of Regime

The defiant and brave young people of Iran torched huge posters of Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and other symbols of the mullahs’ regime, including the Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS), the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), in many cities across Iran during the period October 3-5. They also set fire to several centers belonging to the suppressive security forces in Iran, including the IRGC and their Bassij militia.

These cities include Tehran, Karaj, Sabzevar, Mashad, Shiraz, Zahedan, Rezvanshahr, Fassa, Nowshahr, Semnan, and Kouhdasht, but there may also be others that haven’t yet been reported.

These daring youths, dreaming of change in their country, posted pictures of the Resistance’s leader Massoud Rajavi and the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) president-elect, Maryam Rajavi on buildings and bridges, all visible in public spaces, with the slogans “mullahs must go”, “rise up and bring down the religious dictatorship’ and “down with Khamenei, hail to Rajavi”. This happened in the cities of Tehran, Shiraz, and Mashhad, but again, there may be more that haven’t been reported.

You can see the photos of their rebellious actions on the website of NCRI.

These activities came at the same time as the recent uprising in Lordegan, where angry young people set fire to Lordegan’s provincial governmental office, the office of Khamenei’s representative, the office of the Friday prayer leader, and a number of other governmental centers in the city.

They were protesting in support of the residents of Chenar Mahmoudi village in Chaharmahal-Bakhtiari Province. The suppressive security forces attacked the protesters, firing live rounds at them and shooting tear gas into the crowds.

Still, the protesters chanted slogans like “Down with dictator,” “have no fear, we are all together,” “neither Gaza nor Lebanon, I give my life for Iran,” and “incompetent official, resign, resign.”

The residents are protesting against the local health authority after 300 people, including children, were infected with HIV because of medical professionals using dirty needles during a routine diabetes check.

Rajavi praised the protesters and encourage them to continue.

She said:

“With their chants of death to the dictator and attacking the office of the representative of the Iranian regime’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, they targeted the clerical establishment as the main cause of all the atrocities perpetrated against the Iranian people. This corrupt and criminal regime has squandered Iran’s national wealth by pursuing nuclear and missile projects and engaging in foreign warmongering, which has destroyed all aspects of life for the people of Iran, including health and well-being.”

Protesters in Lordegan, Chaharmahal-Bakhtiari province, suppressed by the mullahs’ regime’s suppressive forces

Events of the past several days proved again that the mullahs’ regime is sitting on top of a volcano. Protesters in Lordegan, Chaharmahal-Bakhtiari province, although temporarily suppressed by the mullahs’ regime’s suppressive forces, sent a strong message by their demonstration:  regardless of where they live, Iranian people are ready to pour into the streets with anger.

The Iranian regime’s suppressive forces in Lordegan attacked the southern town’s residents protesting against the regime on Saturday and murdered one local, Saadatollah (Gharib) Mousavi. Mr. Mousavi was a resident of Bedelleh, a suburb of Lordegan. His family and residents are to hold memorial services to bury his body this afternoon in Lordegan.

Citizens in other parts of Iran turn up in public places such as parks to support their fellow citizens in Lordegan. Local residents in Isfahan were quick to pledge their support for residents of Chenar Mahmoudi a village near Lordegan. High ranking Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) officials did not see it coming because they seriously miscalculated how much the Iranians hate them.

Iranian regime’s official pointed their blaming finger at the Mujahedin-e Khalq (PMOI/MEK) for inspiring the demonstrators.

The mullahs are not mistaken in fearing MEK’s popularity among ordinary citizens. Often, defiant youths torch mullahs’ posters in cities across the nation and put up pictures of Iranian Resistance’s Leadership in residential areas.

Only last week, a government-run website Khabar-Fouri (Breaking News) published two pictures of Iranian Resistance’s Leadership in Gisha district of Tehran. Khabar-Fouri wrote:

“People’s Mujahedin (PMOI/MEK) hanged banners of Massoud and Maryam Rajavi in Hakim Highway.”

A quotation from Masoud Rajavi the historical leader of MEK showed under one of the banners:

“Mujahedin’s main argument, in short, is the people’s sovereign right and vote.”

A quotation from Maryam Rajavi showed under a second banner: “We must and we can overthrow the Velayat-e Faqih’s regime (absolute clerical rule).

Since the start of the new school year two weeks ago, hundreds of large posters of Iranian Resistance’s Leadership with calls for uprising and overthrow of the mullahs’ regime have been posted in different cities in Iran. Defiant youths have also torched dozens of symbols and centers of mullahs’ regime in cities across Iran.

In the first few days of this month, the defiant youths torched symbols of mullahs’ regime and posters of Khomeini and Khamenei in different cities in Iran including Tehran, Ahwaz, Orumiyeh, Neyshabur, Amol, Sabzevar, Kuhdasht, Bandar-Abbas, Khoy, and Mahshahr.

Defiant youths posted in public pictures of the Iranian Resistance’s Leadership alongside slogans such as “We must and we should rid ourselves of oppression and injustice”,” We must and we should overthrow the mullahs’ regime”,” Long live Rajavi, down with Khamenei.”

The Iranian people and MEK are ready to do what it takes to free Iran from the mullahs’ regime. It is a matter of time.

Youths Torch Symbols of Mullahs’ Regime in Different Cities

On the 39th anniversary of 27 September 1981, rebellious youths in Iran torched poster of mullahs’ regime’s founder and current Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei as well as Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) and Bassij forces’ bases across the county over the weekend.

The youths also posted pictures of the Iranian Resistance’s Leadership on walls and overpasses of different cities and signs with anti-government slogans such as Down with  Khamenei, Long live freedom and Democracy and Freedom with Maryam Rajavi.  These activities were carried out in cities such as Tehran, Tabriz, Shahr-e-Rey, Mashhad, Shiraz, Kermanshah, Orumiyeh, Ilam, Zahedan, Khoy, Ramsar, Omidiyeh, Chaboksar.

On September 27, 1981, the youths, supporters of the People’s Mujahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) demonstrated chanting “Down with Khomeini” for the first time in central Tehran since 1979. Members of the IRGC opened fire to the crowd killing hundreds and arresting many more. The detainees were executed on the same day or the days that followed. The MEK has published names of 1142 fallen martyrs of the September 27th.

After that fateful day, a new chapter opened in Iran’s history. One that was marked by a people standing to a back warded regime that was trying to impose its will on a proud nation. The Iranian Resistance leader Masoud Rajavi tried very hard to stop violence and bloodshed from happing in Iran in two years prior to June 20th, 1981. A day that the IRGC opened fire indiscriminately on 500000 unarmed demonstrators which turned up on MEK’s call filling the streets of downtown Tehran in the afternoon.

Khomeini’s mind was set on ruling with the idea of Velayat-e Faqih (absolute rule of clerics). Such thinking left no room for democracy and freedom. Rajavi highlighted the importance of individual freedoms and presented the Iranian people with an alternative to an obsolete doctrine represented by the mullahs. Therefore, September 27 marked the first attempt by the MEK to show the people that Khomeini’s regime has no tolerance for dialog and must go. Khomeini, Khamenei and their likes responded with an iron fist and filled the prisons with freedom fighters. Thousands were executed and they showed no mercy even to underage children or pregnant women.

MEK had no chose but to resist and stand up for its people, and they did. It took the rest of the world some four decades to realize the true nature of the mullahs’ regime. A wake-up call came in 2016 when Mrs. Maryam Rajavi President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) started the Justice Movement campaign for fallen heroes of the 1988 massacre of a political prisoner in Iran. Later that year Grant Ayatollah Hossein-Ali Montazeri’s son released an audiotape of his late father speaking to a four-member “Death Commission” tasked by Khomeini to cleans 30000 political prisoners. Then many human rights organizations reacted. Amnesty International as the most prominent human rights organization took the lead in publishing a number of eye-opening reports on the gruesome 1988 massacre. Finally, the curtains were dropped on curtly of the mullahs’ regime. It is by no means the end of the road. According to Amnesty, 1988 events, amount to a crime against humanity and therefore does not expire and all perpetrators must stand trial before an international criminal court. Khamenei and his cronies have no escape from justice. It is only a matter of time.
