MEK members, massacred in 1988, the composers of “the right to free election” and “the right to freedom of thought” in the free Iran of tomorrow
In 1988, Khomeini committed a widespread massacre of 30,000 political prisoners, the majority of them, the members and supporters of the MEK.
The massacre of Iranian political prisoners in mid-summer of 1988 is considered to be the greatest crime against humanity after the World War II. It is a crime that all the factions of the theocratic regime ruling Iran took part in, and a pond sea of blood that Khomeini baptized all his regime in it.
In response to the international protests against the tortures and the executions of political prisoners in mullahs regime’s prisons, regime’s officials including then prime minister, Mir Hossein Mosavi and then foreign minister, Velayati, on the recommendation of Khomeini, would answer: “We have no political prisoners in Iran”.
Khomeini had told them to call the MEK and other political prisoners as terrorists and never admit to the existence of any “political prisoners”,. and never talk about them with any political or legal entities in the world.
On Friday, September 14th, on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of this massacre, a commemorative meeting will be held with the participation of a number of human rights activists at the United Nations Headquarters in Geneva. The meeting aims at drawing the attention of the UN Special Rapporteur on Human Rights in Iran and the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights to the inclusion of this massacre, in the agenda of the UN Human Rights Council at its forthcoming summit, to attract the attention of the public opinion.
The speakers are Ms. Ingrid Betancourt, Gilbert Mitrán, Taher Boumedra, Lawrence Reil (member of the Swiss Federal Parliament), Dr. Vidal Coadras, the prominent Juan Garseau lawyer, and Mrs. Elizabeth Zamparotti, the secretary of ‘Hands off Cane’.
Every honorable person humbles with pride facing the glory of these silent heroes.
