No to execution! Stop executions in Iran!
These days, the repression and killing machine of the Islamic
Republic has escalated to an extreme level. Only from 8 to 19 May 57 prisoners
were executed with various charges. This is only the number that has been
announced by the media, among them political prisoners, Baloch, Arab and Kurds.
In order to suppress the oppressed people of Baluchistan, the
people who have made the continuation of people’s uprising possible because of
their continued protest every Friday up to now, the Islamic Republic has made
its gallows more numerous and more active. In addition to the death sentences
that were carried out in recent days, dozens of other people are also on the
Since the beginning of its rule, the Islamic regime has cling to
the power based on bloody repression, but this time it has carried out
large-scale executions to prevent the growing trend of womenʼs struggles
against the compulsory hijab, to prevent the struggles of teachers and
pensioners, to prevent the continuation of the struggles of the workers, to
prevent the struggles of the mothers and families of the martyred and in another
words, to deal with the continuation of the Masha’s(Jina) uprising. The Islamic
regime has been also carrying out a vicious chemical attack on the girl’s
school in parallel to these executions in order to punish the school girls for
their important role in Masha’s (Jina) uprising.
But in the current situation, the situation that has been created
as a result of the revolutionary struggles, these executions are not from a
point of strength but from a point of weakness as the regime is so terrified by
the scale of the struggles and its continuation. The Islamic Republic is in a
deep economic and political crisis. The regime is struggling hard by
suppressing the people and especially those from oppressed nationalities such
as Balochistan and Kurdistan who played an important role in the revolutionary
uprising, to come out of these crises.
These executions and the high security measures by the Islamic
regime is aimed to display an atmosphere of repression and to display the
killing machine in front of the desperate masses that, in the last eight
months, mocked the death and stood up to a regime that is armed to the teeth.
The people exposed the competence of this regime more than ever before.
At the same time when the number of executions is shocking, the
Human Rights Council of the United Nations appoints the representative of the
Islamic Republic Ali Bahraini as the head of this assembly for the year 2023.
This is disgraceful and a clear insult to the masses of people in Iran that their
most basic human rights has been violated by this regime for the last 44 years.
The only way to deal with the gallows of the Islamic Republic is to
continue the struggle in a broad, persistent and aimful way.
While the western governments despite their noise against the
Islamic regime are quietly helping the Islamic regime to stay in power, the
Iranian people need the support of the masses all over the world and the masses
of people in this country. They need your support to stop these executions. The
justice and freedom lovers who have respect for the life of human kinds and the
people who are fighting a barbaric regime should raise their voices and protest
against these executions and the violation of the most basic rights of the
people in Iran. Protest in any way possible to save the life of the people who
are only fighting for their basic rights.
