NCRI – Iranians in Canada and Holland have held rallies to condemn the human rights abuses that exist in Iran and urge international protection for Iranian dissidents who are under threat of massacre in Iraq.
Supporters of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) in Ottawa held a banner which read “Stop executions in Iran” and another which read “29 hangings in one day: Mullahs’ leaders must be tried for crimes against humanity.”
They also held Iran’s tri-color flag.
In Holland, the protesting Iranians held a banner which read “Camp Liberty, now = a prison and totally unacceptable.”
They were referring to the camp in Baghdad which houses thousands of members of the main Iranian opposition group People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) who have come under numerous rocket attacks by the Iranian regime’s proxy terrorist forces in Iraq.
Another banner read “Stop executions, medieval torture and cruel punishments in Iran.”
One of the banners in the rally in Montréal read: “The silence [of the] international community vis-a-vis the brutality of the Iranian regime has emboldened fundamentalism everywhere.”
“Free political prisoners in Iran,” another banner read.
