People’s message to regime in the 2013 election in Iran: Free political prisoners in Iran

Following the so-called  2013 Islamic regime’s presidential election and announcing Hassan Rohani as the president, there was a demand, which was imposed on him by people, that stood up against all others: the release of all political prisoners.

Rohani announced that he will release political prisoners and will give freedom to the press. During the last 34 years, regime and its leaders, including Rohani, have been telling the world that Iran has no political prisoners!! Now, under the pressure from people in Iran, the regime and its presidential candidate have been forced to mention this in their election campaigns. This is the first time that the Islamic regime has admited there are political prisoners in Iran.

The 2013 sham election was neither free nor fair by any international standards. The promise by Rohani is a perfect example of people’s power in Iran. Prior to the “election”, Khamenei begged people, even those who are against the regime, to vote. This showed how weak and desperate the regime is.

Rohani is part of the establishment and will not release political prisoners and will not allow any freedom for people or the press. The freedom of all political prisoners is tied to the struggle of people in Iran as well as the work of the international campaigns such as CFFPI.

On 20 June 2013, the International Day in Support of Political Prisoners in Iran, we call on all concerned individuals and organisations to join CFPPI and show their support and solidarity with political prisoners in Iran. You can show your support by joining our events which is organised in different cities across the world. You can also support by posting solidarity massage on our/your Facebook page, our/your Twitter or by sending an email to your country’s government officials. You can also speak about the situation of political prisoners in Iran on your media. CFPPI is adamant to keep pressurising the regime in Iran until all political prisoners are freed. Help us to achieve this goal!
