Background

 

On September 2, 2003, MEHR Iran will sponsor its 2nd conference in “Remembrance of the Massacre of Thousands of Prisoners of Conscience by the Islamic Regime of Iran in summer of 1988.” Based on MEHR’s proposal, Amnesty International recognized September 1st as the universal memorial day for massacre victims during its 2003 General Meeting.

 

Fifteen years have passed since the Islamic regime of Iran brutally killed thousands of political prisoners so that it could continue its mediaeval despotic rule. MEHR is pleased to announce that on the fifteenth anniversary of this horrible day and after six years of hard work it has finally filed a law suite against the Islamic regime of Iran through the Center for Justice and Accountability.

 

This event is organized to inform the world community of this horrific crime, a crime that has been ignored for so many years. The objective of the conference is to unveil the crimes of the Islamic Regime, which is responsible for these and many other murderous acts. This conference will also emphasize the importance of seeking justice for the victims through international avenues.

 

In addition, this conference hopes to appeal to the freedom loving people of the world to help us stop the interest-driven Western governments from supporting the Islamic Regime.
