The Islamic republic of Iran has embarked on a new wave of suppression. I the recent days it has executed a number of prisoners, stoned some to death and arrested a number of labour, student and activist of womens movement in Iran. This is part of its assault to intimidate the rising protest movement in Iran.
Number of arrest and summarily executions has risen dramatically.
Last week, the Islamic regime stoned Jafa Kiyani to death in Takistan.
On Saturday 14 July, in northern city of Tabriz, Horiyeh, was executed in public for having sex out of wedlock.
On the same day 3 others were hanged in the same city.
It was announced that in a few days time, Mokarameh Ebrahimi, mother of 5 children would be stoned to death.
The Leaders of the Islamic Republic have announced last week that they have verified the execution of 20 young people.
Mansour Osdanloo, leader of the Tehran Bus drivers Union has been kidnapped and imprisoned.
Furthermore they have announced that religious police would be doubled in city parks and streets to prevent teenage boys and girls mixing and floating religious ethics. While Mahmoud Salehi, a leading labour activist, is still in prison, they have continued to put on trial two other labour activists, Shieth Amani and Sadeeg Karimi, from the city of Sanandaj for organizing celebrations of May 1st international workers day .
The Islamic republic has turned to violent aggression at the very time when it is in deep crisis and protest movement in Iran is escalating. The so called petrol protest in opposition to hike in petrol prices in Iran is an example. The increase in religious police to impose hejab is an attempt by the Islamic republic to confront this movement which really indicates that Iranian society is rejecting the Islamic imposition and its policies.
We will confront this assault and will defeat it!
