Free jailed workers and all political prisoners in Iran! End executions!
Demonstrate 12 Pm Thursday Parliament House NSW
The Islamic Republic of Iran is speeding up the rate of execution, with tens of prisoners executed over the past few weeks alone. There are 3000 people of death row.
Given economic crisis and widespread poverty, the Iranian regime has started a new wave of executions and has increased all forms of persecution of trade union leaders, aiming to instil fear and stop mass protests.
In addition the regime is using alleged “drug trafficking” as a pretext for the recent executions of those who oppose it – including the political prisoners Satar Beheshti, a dissident blogger, and Jamil Souaidi.
Nasrin Sotoudeh, a human rights lawyer, is currently on hunger strike in protest at the conditions of imprisonment of political prisoners.
