Dutch priest supports Iran protests
Progressive Dutch pastor Mr Rob Rosenboom in a message announced his supports for Iran protests for freedom and democracy.
In his message, which is accompanied by a two-part poem about protests in Iran and the suppression of youth, he said:
“Dear Friends, Salam! Included two small poems I wrote due to the many problems in homeland Iran.
Massive unrest in home country Iran, It is a form of compassion, to bring in words what is going on and maybe the most important… My commitment to you, the PMOI liberation movement!!
Despite withheld messages. We will NOT yield. Wish honest info about home country Iran, Keep hoping and believing, on help from the heavens, and condemnation of these cruel tyrants!”
So far, many distinguished figures around the world have supported the Iran protests and called for respect for the human rights of the Iranian people, including US senators and members of Congress from both sides of the aisle, members of parliament and political dignitaries from Switzerland. Also, a number of Nobel laureates have written a joint letter to the United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres highlighting the Iranian regime’s crackdown on the Iran protests. Besides, members of the United Kingdom’s Parliament, expressed their solidarity with the Iranian people and their ongoing uprising in over 187 cities.
On Tuesday anti-regime protests that erupted across Iran over the sudden increase in the price of gasoline entered their nineteenth consecutive day. So far, according to information obtained the network of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), the demonstrations have spread to 187 cities.
The demonstrations continue despite a brutal crackdown on the protests by Iranian security forces and a clampdown on internet access across Iran.
The MEK’s network confirms at least 600 people have been killed by regime authorities, along with over 4,000 people injured. Reports also indicate at least 10,000 protesters were arrested. The final statistics could, unfortunately, be far higher.
