Iraq: Camp Liberty under siege – March 2014

images (7)Depriving the patients of having access to medical services and doctors under the pretext of not holding ID cards

Intelligence forces affiliated to the Iraqi Prime Ministry are interfering in the residents’ medical affairs and are depriving them of medical services. Preventing the patients from going to hospitals and depriving them of access to medical services is an inhumane act. In order to legitimize this act, the Iraqi Intelligence Forces are resorting to various pretexts. One of the most significant pretexts is the issue of ID cards. Recently, Iraqi forces under the pretext that the patients do not have protected ID cards, which were issued by US Forces in 2004, are preventing the patients from going to hospitals. This means people who don’t have ID cards won’t be permitted to go to hospitals. Continue reading

NCRI appeals to save Iranian woman on death row for defending herself against MOIS agent

I’d like to draw your attention to a shocking report about the suppression of women in Iran under Rouhani’s rule. This report, given by the NCRI women’s committee, is an appeal to save the life of an innocent young women who faces the threat of execution.

The Women’s Committee of the National Council of Resistance of Iran calls on all international bodies and human rights organizations, especially the UN Special Rapporteur on Extra-judicial, Summary or Arbitrary executions and the UN Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Iran, as well as the bodies defending women’s rights, to take urgent action to have the death sentence of Ms. Rayhaneh Jabbari revoked.

Canada Iran group: UN must send troops to protect Iranian dissidents in Camp Liberty

The United Nations must send blue helmet peace-keeping troops to Camp Liberty to protect Irnanian opposition members from attack, the Canadian Friends of a Democratic Iran have urged.

British Parliamentarians urge UN protect 1000 Iranian women at Camp Liberty

Statement issued by Baroness Turner of Camden

More than 110 members of both Houses of Parliament supported a statement about the Iranian women’s struggle for freedom and gender equality. The statement also pressed for assurances on safety, security and well being of 1000 brave women at Camp Liberty who are facing serious threats by Iraqi armed forces at the behest of the Iranian regime.

While honoring the International Women’s Day, our hearts bleed for the Iranian women who have been the prime victims of the ruling religious dictatorship for more than three decades. On March 8, the International Women’s Day, 80 women were arrested in the streets of Tehran. A few days prior to that a 26-year-old woman was hanged in the city of Isfahan leaving behind her 8-year-old daughter.

Desperate to find a way out of the political and economic crises that surround it, the Iranian regime finally gave in to nuclear talks with the P5+1 in Geneva. The economic crisis in Iran has raised the potential of a popular uprising against the ruling mullahs by the Iranian people and their organised resistance to an explosive level, and has set the regime on the road to its downfall.

One example of the social dissatisfaction was the protests recently held by the Bakhtiari people in southern cities, in which the demonstrators chanted “Death to Khamenei!” and “Death to Rouhani!” and expressed their will to overthrow the ruling regime.

Hassan Rouhani, the regime’s president, is trying to contain the economic crisis in Iran by obtaining sanctions relief at the negotiating table. However, the principle cause of the crisis isn’t the sanctions but the current bankrupt, crippled, collapsed and uncontrollable economy that is the result of three decades of religious dictatorship by the mullahs in Iran.

Third week of food and medicine blockade of Iranian opposition members in Iraq

camp-liberty5It is over two weeks now that in an anti-human and criminal measure, government of Iraq is barring entry of medicine and food to Camp Liberty using fictitious excuses. Many of the essential foodstuffs in the camp are either completely consumed or about to be finished and the sick are facing shortage of the medicine that they need.

Additionally, Iraqi forces systematically hamper transfer of patients to hospitals. In a recent case on March 16, as the ambulance was leaving the camp, two of the interpreters of the patients were prevented from accompanying the patients and only after two hours and switch of the interpreters, the ambulance left the camp;however due to the delay, a number of patients were too late for their medical appointments and fruitlessly returned to camp.

Iran’s mullahs were caught red-handed – again – smuggling weapons to their proxies in the Middle-East region. An intercepted cargo of M-302 missiles, originating from Bandar Abbas, was bound for Gaza to stoke the fires of destruction and mayhem and further distance the region from peace and stability, the main beneficiary of which would be the Iranian regime, a dictatorship that thrives on terror and death and is the number one state sponsor of terrorism in the world.

This happens while the P5 + 1 readies itself for the next round of talks with the mullahs over their much-contested nuclear program scheduled within the next week. Continue reading
