Amman Human Rights Studies Center Statement with UN consultative status
We urge the United Nations and international human rights defenders to strongly condemn the suppression of protesters in Iran and immediately send a delegation from the United Nations to investigate the situation of the martyrs, the wounded and those arrested.
The international silence on crime against humanity in Iran is unacceptable. The UN Security Council must recognize the Iranian regime and its officials as responsible for crimes against humanity and bring them to justice.

We condemn the brutal suppression of Iran protests. The protests have so far resulted in 1000 deaths, 4000 wounded and 12,000 arrests. The detainees face very difficult conditions. Khamenei and Rouhani ordered to attack the protesters. We call on the United Nations and all its member states to publicly condemn this bloody crackdown, independent observers and UN fact-finding mission should be allowed to visit Iranian prisons.
Call for Human Rights Committee – Bangladesh to the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights
We join Amnesty International and other human rights organizations and urge the United Nations and its member states to explicitly condemn the bloody crackdown on demonstrations in Iran and to persuade the Iranian authorities to allow independent human rights monitors and representatives of UN fact-finding mission to visit hospitals and detention centers
Statement by Roger Lyons former head of the UK and Wales trade unions
What is happening in Iran now must arouse the conscience of the whole world.
The Iranian regime is ruthlessly attacking civilians. Hundreds have been killed and thousands have been wounded, and this is how the criminal regime acts against humanity.
I urge the world to support the statement by Iranian opposition leader Ms. Rajavi calling for international action.
