selection as the so-called president of the
Islamic Regime in Iran (IRI) is not a surprise.
However, he as one of the most illustrating face
of the IRI, provides more opportunities for us to
reduce and stop our shame for allowing a brutal,
religious dictatorship to rule our country for
more than forty years.
we keep raising our opposition by statements,
petitions, meaningless demands and slogans, the
interest driven world will continue its
relationship with the regime and help its
stability and more endurance. US authority have
already announced with pride that Raisi’s election
has nothing to do with their negotiations with the
regime about limiting its atomic activities and
resuming their previous deals.
to them to consider the human rights violations
and stop recognizing this regime has not and won’t
stop the recognition of IRI. They must be forced
to do so. This can be done if freedom loving
Iranians and all other informed people of the
world get involved and enforce this task by
participation in the political process.
selection with his clear, documented background
has created a decisive movement by the
International Human Rights Organizations. This
would facilitate our tasks of exposing the real
face of IRI and involve many people to demand from
their political representatives to stop the
recognition of IRI.
has started a serious action against the selection
of Raisi due to his role in the 1988 massacre of
the political prisoners.
about the 1988 massacre can be reviewed on the
MEHR website .
has started a movement for the formal
investigation of Raisi for crimes against humanity
wide range of international activists have also
called on UN for
on 1988 prison massacres ,
activists could have started a grass root movement
around the MEHR initiation in 2002. MEHR adopted a
resolution at AI Southern Region Annual Meeting in
which September 1st was suggested as a
commemoration Day for the massacre of political
prisoners. This proposal was adopted at AI annual
meeting in 2003 in Pittsburg. September 1 was
supposed to become an international day for the
remembrance of the victims of political violence
in international meeting in London.
However, since AI observed that rather
than MEHR no other Iranian group observes this
day, stopped to pursue this task. A wide range of
the groups worldwide ignored continuous MEHR’s
proposal to consider this day along any other day
that they traditionally remember this day. Not one
single group showed any interest!
have started reaching AI again hoping that this
time murderous Raisi may change the sad situation.
steps to be taken to take advantage of the
international attention to human right abuse in
Iran will be discussed in details in another
writing in both English and Persian.

investigated for crimes against humanity
