US Congress overwhelmingly approved a resolution in solidarity with protesters in Iran. The 420-1 vote is the latest international condemnation of the Iranian regime’s repression of nationwide protests.
Last week, the European Parliament held a similar vote and called for the terrorist designation of the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC).
Since September, the regime has killed at least 750 people and arrested 30,000. Authorities have executed four people for taking part in protests. Dozens more are under the threat of being executed.
Claudia Tenney (R-NY): “It is vital that we… stand with one voice to affirm our support for the brave Iranian people”.
Gregory Meeks (D-NY): “We want the Iranian people to know that we see you. We know the risk you’re taking and the danger that you face… Stay strong, as freedom will always win over tyranny”.
