Open Letter to the International Community
People in Iran have joined the recent wave of demonstrations in the Middle East. The ongoing demonstrations has started in 14 February and is currently underway in many cities across Iran. Flowing the recent uprisings in Egypt, Tunisia, Libya and several other counties in the region, once again world is witnessing a mass demonstrations against the Islamic regime in Iran. Once again world is witnessing another brutal crackdown on the demonstrators by the Islamic regime. Thousands have been arrested, and will be added to the pool of political prisoners who are already in prison being tortured, and are awaiting their execution.
Despite the fact that regime in Iran has been putting a tight restrictions on the Internet and is closely monitoring telephone calls from Iran to the outside world, people have managed to send out their messages and the news of their protests through the social networks such as Facebook and Twitter.
I would like to echo the voice of political prisoners and their families, and urge the international community to condemn the crack down of the protestors by Islamic regime of Iran. If the crack down on the demonstrators in Libya, Egypt, and Tunisia is condemned, then the same message of condemnation must be sent to the authorities of the Islamic Regime in Iran. The imprisoning and torturing of the demonstrators must be strongly condemned by the international community. The Islamic Regime should know that the world is watching and will not tolerate and allow their heinous act of crime to continue.
In reaction to recent crack down in Iran, the international community, the heads of states, and governments around the world must sever, and freeze their political ties with the Islamic Regime in Iran, and recall their ambassador from Tehran. The International community must not close their eyes on what is happening in Iran and should issue an arrest warrant for each of the authorities of the Islamic regime for crime against humanity.
