A day of protest in Washington DC against the recent surge of executions of political prisoners in Iran

 Supporters of freedom!

Defenders of human rights!

Once again, the reactionary and inhumane regime of the Islamic Republic of Iran has shamelessly and fearlessly embarked on a new wave of killings and executions of innocent and brave sons and daughters of this country.

In recent weeks and months, the regime has begun a new wave of executions of political prisoners- and it seems that – the killing machine will likely to continue. This is whilst the new government of Rouhani had promised the betterment of general conditions for all Iranians, especially the oppressed nationalities.

The overall conditions of Iranian people have drastically worsened since the rise to power of the clerics following the revolution in 1979; however, nationalities under twofold oppression have suffered immense injustice and oppression under this regime.  Regrettably, once more the killing machine of this menace regime has gone full speed and a number of Balochi, Ahwazi Arabs and Kurds have been put on death row; a clear indication of this regime’s culminating antagonism against these oppressed nationalities.

Currently, there are dozens of Arab, Balochi and Kurdish political prisoners, languishing in Iranian regime’s prisons, unjustly condemned to death in hasty trials without due legal process.  The international community should not choose silent in the wake of executions and repression, fearing possible “derailment” of negotiations with the regime on its nuclear issue, the export of terrorism and interference in the affairs of neighboring and regional countries, among other issues.

We the signatories, while condemning these heinous crimes  and unwarranted oppression of the people of Iran by the regime , stand with the legitimate demands and rightful aspirations of the people of Iran for freedom and democracy, with all its Turkmen, Arab, Balochi, Kurdish, Turkish and Persian population included.  We therefore urge the international community, world public opinion and international institutions to seek a legal and binding solution to stop these acts and policies of the regime of Islamic Republic of Iran without delay.

Thus, we also appeal to the freedom-loving people of Washington capital Region to participate in a protest organized for this sombre occasion, to be held on:

Tuesday 12 November 2013 from 11:00 AM to 03:00 PM in front of the US Department of State at 2201 C Street NW Washington, DC 20520.

About Kurdish American Committee for Democracy and Human Rights in Iran(kacdhri)

Kurdish American Committee for Democracy and Human Rights in Iran On November 2005 a group of Kurdish-Americans decided to organize a committee to work on Kurdish issues in Iran and to build a relationship among Iranian opposition groups toward democracy in Iran. The following points clarified a need for organizing and helping the Iranian political parties to come together and to start coordinating their efforts We considered that: 1. Iran is not a homogeneous ethnic society and formidable Iranian opposition parties are aligned with separate ethnic groups. 2. Persians are a minority who has been the dominating power since the end of WWI and all other minority groups have revolted at some point during the 20th century and continue to do so in this century. 3.Kurdish struggle for human rights and self-determination is the longest and most mature democratic national movement in Iran, the only one to have developed a constitution for a democratic society (The Republic of Kurdistan, Mahabad 1947). 4. We considered that any political opposition to the Islamic regime without the involvement of Turkmans, Baluoch, Azeri, Kurd and Arab groups would fail. 5. Almost all Persian nationalist parties have vowed to side with the Islamic regime to “fight” minority groups and democracy. Based on the above ideas and considerations, Kurdish Americans from Iran organized a Committee for Democracy on December 2005. “Kurdish American Committee for democracy in Iran” had a sense of obligation to take an active role in organizing the Iranian opposition groups by:
