Call to protest against the recent surge of executions in Iran in front of the US Department of State

Call to protest against the recent surge of executions of political prisoners in Iran 

Supporters of freedom!
Defenders of human rights!

Once again, the reactionary and inhumane regime of the Islamic Republic of Iran has
shamelessly and fearlessly embarked on a new wave of killings and executions of innocent and
brave sons and daughters of this country.
In recent weeks and months, the regime has begun a new wave of executions of political
prisoners- and it seems that - the killing machine will likely to continue. This is whilst the new
government of Rouhani had promised the betterment of general conditions for all Iranians,
especially the oppressed nationalities.
The overall conditions of Iranian people have drastically worsened since the rise to power of
the clerics following the revolution in 1979; however, nationalities under twofold oppression
have suffered immense injustice and oppression under this regime. Regrettably, once more the
killing machine of this menace regime has gone full speed and a number of Balochi, Ahwazi
Arabs and Kurds have been put on death row; a clear indication of this regime’s culminating
antagonism against these oppressed nationalities.
Currently, there are dozens of Arab, Balochi and Kurdish political prisoners, languishing in
Iranian regime’s prisons, unjustly condemned to death in hasty trials without due legal process.
The international community should not choose silent in the wake of executions and repression,
fearing possible “derailment” of negotiations with the regime on its nuclear issue, the export of
terrorism and interference in the affairs of neighboring and regional countries, among other
issues.
We the signatories, while condemning these heinous crimes and unwarranted oppression of
the people of Iran by the regime , stand with the legitimate demands and rightful aspirations of
the people of Iran for freedom and democracy, with all its Turkmen, Arab, Balochi, Kurdish,
Turkish and Persian population included. We therefore urge the international community,
world public opinion and international institutions to seek a legal and binding solution to stop
these acts and policies of the regime of Islamic Republic of Iran without delay.
Thus, we also appeal to the freedom-loving people of Washington capital Region to participate
in a protest organized for this sombre occasion, to be held on:

Tuesday 12 November 2013 
11:00 AM to 03:00 PM
in front of the US Department of State
