In the realm of foreign policy, Iran has meddled in the affairs of the countries in the region, especially Syria; albeit that the Syrian nation does make a distinction between the mullahs’ meddling and the Iranian nation.

The policy of suppression and terrorism through execution and detention of dissidents and freedom-lovers and even lawyers is ongoing. We also witness all types of discriminations; be it gender-based, ethnic or class related or political. Meanwhile, the ruling clique bought on international sanctions with their nuclear program, and this has led to extreme poverty across Iran.

In such circumstances, there is no solution but solidarity of all freedom-lovers who crave a democratic government. There must be a separation of the mosque and the state and other progressive principles adopted from the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Given that the prisoners of conscience are condemned in illegal courts by illegal judges in unjust trials while deprived of a legitimate defense, the unconditional freedom of these prisoners is a humanitarian necessity.

In this regard, saying NO to executions is a national demand.
