Each year the Iranian resistance holds a massive convention in Paris calling for democratic change in Iran. The event draws tens of thousands of participants, more than a hundred elected officials and dignitaries from various countries, and brings together a multitude of political groups and factions. This year things felt a little different, as the event not only garnered significant attention worldwide, but also reflected the steady and deliberate pace at which the Iranian resistance continues to sustain its movement.

Recent reports have shed light on the tactics used by the Obama administration to sell the Iran deal to the American public.  Ploughshares, a group identified by the White House as a key partner in selling the Iran deal to the public has recently been found to have provided funding to specific reporters and media outlets. The revelation calls into question the ethics of the administration, and raises serious questions as to the integrity of certain non-governmental organizations and media outlets. Putting aside the nuclear deal with Iran, the Ploughshares controversy uncovers a deeper issue with respect to the treatment of the Iranian opposition by those involved in the “echo chamber.”

Iran is making headlines, but for all the wrong reasons. This past month saw a series of important stories come out with respect both internal and international issues in Iran. The stories are consistent with two themes that many Iranians have maintained over the last year; that the nuclear deal with Iran has not changed the nature of the regime, nor has it benefitted the people of Iran with regard to human rights.

A recent article in theNew York Times Magazine provided a candid look at the politics and rhetoric surrounding the Iran deal. The article featured an interview with Ben Rhodes, the deputy national security adviser for the Obama administration, and detailed how the Iran deal was sold to the American public. The remarks by Rhodes were not only surprisingly honest, but confirmed the charge made by many that the administration had misled the public with regard to the deal with Iran.

The Iranian regime employs many methods in its war against its own people. This includes torture, execution, isolation and terror. For political prisoners, incarcerated in the dungeons of the regime, one of the most difficult challenges they face is the policy of medical negligence. This policy, predicated on unsanitary living conditions, dismal medical care, and agonizing pain and isolation amounts to state sanctioned torture and in some cases death. The issue of medical negligence faced by Iranian prisoners is of growing concern for human rights organizations and activists struggling for change in Iran.
