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.

While U.S. President Barack Obama is pressing to finalize a nuclear agreement with Iran, a growing number of congressmen and officials from allied states, especially in the Middle East, are expressing deep concerns over the framework of the deal being shaped.
During the course of these talks, the Obama administration is reluctant in showing any reaction vis-a-vis Iran’s increasing crusade to expand its influence across the Middle East; in fact it appears the administration is ready to provide Tehran a power-role in the region, which will come at the expense of the people of Middle East nations—especially in Iran, Iraq, Syria and Yemen.

This place is the so-called Camp Liberty near Baghdad airport where several thousand members of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran are residing. Today, words like liberty and democracy have lost their meaning and become void, used by anyone for their own intention and personal interests.
Now, please come with me to Camp “Liberty”.

When you lose a loved one, you record all the love, memories and affiliation you had with them in your mind because you know that there will never be a next chance to talk or see her\him again. The only place that you can share those feelings of love, loss and sorrow, is when you visit their grave, which I believe all of you have once experienced this feeling; the feeling of comfort that you receive on your visit to their grave.
However, the Iranian regime has even deprived me of this feeling and opportunity and has severed this emotional connection with those whom we love and have lost. And unfortunately some of my friends and I have faced this bitter measure.

A true story of a rainy day in Camp Liberty
By Bahman Bakhshi,
It is 3 O’clock of a rainy afternoon in Camp Liberty, where Iranian dissidents live, just next to Baghdad international airport. Some call it Liberty Prison. It is one of the last cold days of winter. I have to wear my large wool socks and my knitted gloves to keep me warm in my very cold room. I also have my scarf around my neck. This scarf with its white lines means a lot to me. It is a souvenir of my fallen friend, Bijan. He was killed on a Christmas Eve when it did neither rain nor snow in Camp Liberty, but fatal rackets fell on us. I look through my window which unlike all windows in winter is not Steamy at all. That reminds me of my childhood, when I used to draw pictures with my finger on steamy windows. You find no steamy window in Camp Liberty. There is a logistic siege exerted on us by the security forces that control the camp.

It was February when I was finally released from Prison after some 10 years. During this time, I was only kept behind bars for my political dissent to the mullahs ruling my country. A day after my release, in order to pay my respects to my friends who had been executed by the Iranian regime, I rushed to the Behesht Zahra Cemetery in Tehran.
Yet what I saw before my eyes were broken tombstones, shattered by the repressive regimes’ elements. The regime’s forces had no mercy on them when they were alive, and after their death emptied their hatred and animosity on their lifeless graves.
