(en) France, FA: Stop State Crimes in Iran (ca, de, it, fr, pt, tr)[machine translation]

Date Fri, 27 Jan 2023 08:27:32 +0200

The regime of the Islamic Republic has chosen as usual to bloodily suppress the unprecedented movement of "Woman - Life - Freedom" which began after the assassination of Mahsa Amini in Iran on September 16. ---- The estimate of a human rights organization is 520 dead in street protests, including 70 people under the age of 18, provisional figures from January 12. ---- The various forces of repression arrested more than 19,000 protesters, either in the street or at home. Several political prisoners have lost their lives under atrocious torture. The judiciary has not been idle either and has organized completely unfair and summary trials. There have already been four executions by hanging: Mohsen Shekari, 23, on December 8, Majidreza Rahnavard, 23, on December 12, Mohammad Mehdi Karami, 22, and Mohammad Hosseini, 22, on January 7.
At dawn on January 9 two other executions were scheduled against Mohammad Boroughani and Mohammad Ghobadlou. But, following the call of Ghobadlou's mother, a night rally was held in front of the prison. The judiciary has announced that Boroughani's execution is not on the agenda, but that the regime can execute Ghobadlou at any time.
The list of political prisoners arrested in the current movement in Iran and sentenced to death included 22 names as of January 10.

MEPs have sponsored or sponsored political prisoners in Iran. Clémentine Autin from NUPES was Mehdi Karami's godmother. These symbolic gestures have no influence on the bloodthirsty regime of the ayatollahs and do not stop the killing.
More offensive actions are needed, for example demonstrations in front of the diplomatic representations of the Islamic regime all over the world or the demand for their closure by expelling diplomats.

Amnesty International claims that the ayatollahs' regime executed an average of one prisoner per day in 2022. This is mainly the execution of common law prisoners, which is just as unacceptable as that of political prisoners, especially since these executions were mostly carried out in the poorest regions.
Thus 26% of executions in 2022 concern Sistan-Baluchistan, while the Baluchis constitute only 5% of the population in Iran.

The Anarchist Federation condemns the repression of the revolutionary movement in Iran.
It demands the immediate cancellation of all death sentences pronounced, both against political prisoners and prisoners of common law.
The death penalty is a state crime.

The Anarchist Federation declares its unwavering internationalist solidarity with the women and men of Iran who struggle for freedom and equality.
It salutes the memory of all the women and all the men who fell for their emancipation, in the streets and on the firing squads in Iran.

Stop the massacre in Iran
Freedom for all political prisoners
