solidarity with the Iranian

By Pooya Stone

The ACHRS Amman Center for Human Rights Studies in Jordan, in consultation with the United Nations on 6 December, released a statement on its official website, titled “Statement of solidarity with the popular uprising of people, workers, and students in Iran”, condemning the crackdown on the Iran protests.

Highlighting the rights of the Iranian people to protest and demand their rights, the center asked human rights organizations and government agencies to condemn violations of the fundamental rights of Iranian workers, people, and students, and demand the immediate and unconditional release of political protesters arrested in the protests.

The statement said:

“Reports from Iran indicate that the Iranian Revolutionary Guard and other Iranian security forces have fired directly at peaceful demonstrations in Iranian cities. Regime officials are hiding corpses in order to keep the government’s firm crackdown on protestors a secret.

“In the recent nationwide uprising, more than 1000 people have been killed by direct shooting by the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, including those as young as thirteen years old. In addition, more than 4,000 people have been injured and more than 12,000 have been arrested. However, actual statistics may be much higher.

“We support all political prisoners including women, men, youth, students, workers and teachers who were imprisoned because of the positive change they have attempted to initiate. We demand the immediate and unconditional release of all political prisoners detained during recent uprisings and protests.

“We urge all human rights organizations and individuals around the world to join this declaration of solidarity with the Iranian people to help the Iranian people and youth and uphold their rightful demands.

“We encourage the United Nations and the international community of human rights defenders to strongly condemn the suppression of the Iranian protests. We call on the United Nations to urgently send a delegation to Iran to investigate the situation of killed, injured and arrested protesters.

“International silence in the face of the heinous crimes against humanity in Iran is absolutely unacceptable.”

Iran: Unpaid wages, hungry workers, live bullets

“Mass protests in cities across Iran erupted on November 15 in response to a hike in the price of fuel. The government responded with lethal force and shut down the internet, and in some places even mobile phone service, cutting people off from one another and from the outside world. Since then, some limited information has begun to trickle out.

“Video evidence analyzed by Amnesty International confirms that security forces, including rooftop snipers, opened fire on unarmed demonstrators. Hundreds of protestors, largely workers and the urban poor, are so far known to have been killed; many thousands have been arrested. Families are being billed the price of the bullets which killed the victims.”
