She gets hold of her camera and checks the battery; it’s not fully charged. She thinks to herself, for the job I have it should be fully charged, most probably I won’t have access to any electricity.
It might be my last day of filming, she thought; because former Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri Maliki threatened he would attack Ashraf, home to more than 3000 Iranian dissidents, members of Iranian opposition.

Camp Ashraf in Iraq’s Diyala Province was home to nearly 3,400 members of the organized opposition facing the regime ruling Tehran and the scene of a horrific bloodbath in the early morning hours of April 8th, 2011.
The attack on this camp began at 4:45 am by the Iraqi Army 5th Division led by Staff Brigadier General Zia Kadhem Danbus. Five other Iraqi Army battalions, including a mechanized infantry battalion and an armored battalion from the Iraqi Army 9th Division also participated in this lethal assault.
This onslaught was carried out while the Iraqi government had provided official written guarantees to the US government in December 2008 pledging to respect Ashraf residents’ rights based on International Law.

Eids and national festivals and holidays are periods that highlight human values and everyone endeavors to show and let out these inner sentiments. For example, some people give donations to human rights organs. Some government organs and departments donate a day’s wage to the most needing sectors of the society. Some go to visit homeless and unattended families and children. Others go to refugee camps and comfort them with their support.

Specifying the time needed to go from A to B is always one of the most important parameters of mankind in pursuing their smallest to biggest objectives, and even in their routine daily lives. The reason is by specifying the time needed to span a distance man can calculate the time needed to reach his objective. Currently, scientists are using this parameter and they can easily say one can reach the moon in a period of two weeks.
This is a scientific example and it has nothing to do with people’s lives, spirituals or moral principles. However, we the members of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran stationed in Camp Liberty (adjacent to Baghdad International Airport) have been living in Iraq for nearly 30 years now in our struggle to free our country, Iran, from the grasps of the ruling religious fascism, have never been able to calculate the time period between the words and deeds of human rights organizations, especially the United Nations.

Liberty Is Not FreeCamp residents are calling on the UN and U.S. government to respect their moral and legal responsibilities vis-a-vis their safety, security and rights, and also take action to stop the Iraqi forces’ approach.On a gravel road passing through a refugee camp neighboring Baghdad International Airport, Iranian dissidents gather day after day, protesting human rights violations, prison-making measures by Iraqi forces and security threats endangering their lives at the hands of Iran-backed extremist groups in Iraq.
This camp, with laws imposed by the Iraqi government similar to that of a prison, is ironically dubbed Liberty, in which thousands of Iranian dissident members of the main opposition to Tehran, PMOI, are residing. These refugees, one third of whom are women, were mostly educated and graduated from universities in Europe, the United States and various Iranian cities. However, they have dedicated their lives to establishing freedom and democracy in their country, and to rid their land of the viciousness and barbarity of the ruling mullahs. The Iranian mullahs are known as the godfather of ISIS and Islamic fundamentalism.
