Anglo-Iranian Communities in UK rally opposite Number 10 Downing Street in support of the Iran protests
The Anglo-Iranian Communities in the UK and supporters of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) held a rally opposite Number 10 Downing Street on Friday, December 6, in support of the ongoing popular protests in Iran that have turned into an uprising against the clerical regime. They also honoured the heroic martyrs of the Iran uprising as the death toll surpasses 1,000.
With regards to the regime’s brutal crackdown in response to the ongoing popular uprising, the NCRI President-elect Maryam Rajavi said: “The mullahs have seen themselves on the brink of collapse. They want to evade this fate by committing crimes.”
“The clerical regime in Iran is making every effort under various pretexts to conceal the true death toll. The UN must send a fact-finding mission without delay to investigate the deaths, the injured and those arrested and detained”, Mrs Rajavi added.
Malcolm Fowler, past President of the Birmingham Law Society, joined the Anglo-Iranian Communities in the UK and said, “I support your call on the UN Secretary-general to convene an emergency meeting at the UN Security Council to hold the regime and its leaders to account for their crimes against humanity.”
Mr. Malcolm Fowler highlighted: I support your cause for freedom and democracy and stand with the brave people of Iran in their struggle for legitimate change and to bring this appealing regime to justice for its atrocities including for the 1988 massacre.
Mr. Fowler stated: I support the call by NCRI president-elect Maryam Rajavi on the UN to send a fact-finding mission without delay to investigate the extent of the killings and visit detention centres in Iran.
On December 5, the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) released the names of 19 more martyrs of the nationwide uprising. As such, the names of 350 protesters killed by the Iran regime’s agents and suppressive state security forces have been published so far, see here: https://www.ncr-iran.org/en/ncri-statements/iran-protests/27019-another-19-martyrs-of-iran-nationwide-uprising-identified
Participants backed the call by the NCRI President-elect, Maryam Rajavi, on the international community to condemn the clerical regime’s brutal crackdown on the anti-regime protests and to act to hold its leaders to account for their atrocities and repression.
They urged the UK Government to work with allies at the UN and the EU to implement the following:
– Condemn the horrendous mass killing by the Iranian regime and to take urgent action to stop this crime against humanity and secure the release all those arrested;
– Ask the UN Secretary-General and relevant UN bodies to send a fact-finding mission without delay to investigate the extent of the killings and visit detention centres in Iran;
– Ask the UN Security Council and its president to declare the massacre of the Iranian people by the regime as a crime against humanity, and to bring the heads of this regime and those responsible for this horrific crime to justice including the Supreme Leader, Khamenei, regime’s president Hassan Rouhani, and other senior regime officials.
