Maliheh Malek – October 8, 2020
We salute all the people who were executed by the criminal regime. The last ones were Mostafa Salehi and Navid Afkari, a wrestling champion. His execution angered the entire world community. His crime was to stand up against the tyranny of the regime.
The death of Navid is painful for all of us, but showed the faceoff between justice and crime. On one side was human rights and democracy, all the people who stood up by his side, and on the other was regime Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and criminal regime officials who executed him.
The mullahs might be able to slaughter our heroes, but they will pay a heavy price. Navid has become a symbol for all people who stand up for freedom. We want justice, the regime must be sanctioned for its human rights abuses.
The United Nations Security Council must restore resolutions against the regime or else the regime will continue its crimes. As we near the anniversary of the November 2019 protests, we pay homage to 1,500 protesters killed by Iranian security forces and express solidarity with those who still linger in prisons.
