Article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights reads “All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.”

Every year on 10 December, the world celebrates Human Rights Day, the very day when, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948.

The principles of equality and non-discrimination are at the heart of human rights. This year’s Human Rights Day theme relates to ‘Equality’ and Article 1 of the UDHR.

While the world concentrates on reaching the 2030 UN agenda, we will be drawing attention to the dire human rights situation in Iran, the world record holder in both executions per capita.

The cycle of execution, torture and gross violation of human rights will not stop until the regime is held accountable. 

Just in the summer of 1988 over 30,000 political prisoners were executed in summary executions with 2-3 minute trials based on a fatwa by Khomeini and seen through by ‘Death Commissions’ which included some of the highest ranking officials including Raisi.

As Iranians are denouncing Raisi for his role in the 1988 massacre, they call on the international community to act to end impunity. The cycle of executions in Iran will not stop until impunity is lifted and Khamenei, Raisi and other heads of the regime are prosecuted in an international court for crimes against humanity and genocide.
