The Left Party of Iran (People’s Fadaian) expresses its joy at the release of Narges Mohammadi, calling it the result of her courageous stand and the all-out struggle of freedom-loving forces around the world, who unanimously condemned prison sentences against civil activists and human rights defenders and those who fought for the release of political prisoners and ending detention, torture and imprisonment of civil activists, journalists and dissidents in Iran.

Mohammad Reza Shajarian was a unique singer with a unique voice and mastered his profession and it can be said that he was the most influential figure in contemporary Iranian music. He was a bridge between the old generation and the later generation of Iranian singers and had his own style. He had an admirable skill in reading Persian poetry.

The Left Party of Iran (People’s Fadaian), as a party whose core believes are based on the human rights values ​​and recognizes the "right to life" as one of the highest human rights, considers the inhuman and cruel death penalty to be "deliberate state murder" which is regrettably, still run by some regimes preceded by the IR of Iran.

We demand an immediate end to this military conflict, declaration of ceasefire and the return of the two sides to the negotiating table.

We, at ÖGB strongly urge the authorities to release trade unionist Ismael Bakhshi and journalist Sepideh Gholiyan as well as to engage in a meaningful and authentic social dialogue in order to contribute to not only the economic but also to the social peace of your country.

In this issue, you read:

- Unforgivable Crime

- The representative of the European Parliament in the negotiations with Iran strongly condemned the murder of Navid Afkari!

- No More Youth Killing!

- Silence against Rape and Sexual Harassment is to the Detriment of Society!

- In prisons and with political prisoners

 

 

Political prisoners in Iran have always been held hostage by the regime. For more than forty years, the ruling dictators have used prisoners as means of pressure on society and tools to intimidate the people the way they wanted and as much as they could. Now that the regime is in the throes of another uprising and is facing a more powerful resurrection, it is furiously trying to push back the outbreak of the protest movement by violently repressing people inside and outside of the prison.

Any agreement that is not based on assuring the basic and inalienable rights of the Palestinian people on their land, putting an end to the Israeli occupation and recognizing the right of the Palestinian people to establish their independent national state on the land of Palestine with Jerusalem as its capital, can only be described as a surrender agreement that blatantly denies the just cause of the Palestinian people and their struggle, that is full of sacrifices, to end the abhorrent occupation

Navid Afkari was a victim of the usual frame-ups of the intelligence-security organs and the judiciary of the IR. According to his lawyer, in Navid's case, there is not the slightest evidence to prove his guilt, except for the confessions obtained under torture and dictated by the interrogators. The repressive apparatus of the regime has forced Afkari brothers to confess against each other and accept false accusations under torture.

Navid was not an unknown figure like many other detainees of the August 2018 nationwide protests, but a conscious choice by the IR's repressive apparatus to say that even an international reputation would not prevent the killing of protesters, and that street killings would not suffice but will be complemented by mass detentions, mass torture, insults and confessions and executions.
