Iranian society remains in an explosive situation

With the gradual lifting of the Internet blackout in Iran, the dimensions of the Iranian regime’s cruel repression and bloodshed to quell the national uprising that shook the pillars of the theocratic regime were revealed.

According to reports from the interior of the country, the number of people killed during demonstrations in 181 cities has exceeded 450. The actual figure is higher. But the regime is desperately trying to conceal the extent of its crimes refusing to hand over the bodies of the victims to their families or preventing their funerals.

The number of wounded has exceeded 4000 and the number of people arrested and detained since the beginning of the uprising has so far exceeded 10,000. The wave of arbitrary arrests continues. Tehran’s prisons are overcrowded and face severe space shortages. The situation is worse in other cities and prisoners are held in places belonging to the Pasdarans, or even in schools.

On 25 November, representatives of the Ministry of Intelligence (MOIS) and the Security Forces attended a closed session of the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee (Parliament). The spokesman for the commission told them: “In the last two years, the PMOI has trained various groups and circles and directed them during the demonstrations. These will not be the last incidents and we could see other similar incidents.”

The judicial authorities threaten that “execution by hanging is certain for the leaders of recent riots”. The Iranian regime’s leaders are expressing, one after the other, their fears of the extent and continuation of the national uprising.

Parliamentarians, Politicians, Associations and Human Rights Defenders are coming together to call for an end to the arbitrary killings and arrests in Iran. They will also urge dispatch of a UN fact-finding mission in Iran.

It is time for Europ to end the appeasement policy vis-à-vis the religious dictatorship in Iran.
