Protest Letter To the Prime Minister of Australia



Date: 16/01/2010

The Honorable Kevin Rudd MP, Prime Minister of Australia
cc: Honorable Stephen Smith MP, the Minister for Foreign Affairs
cc: Honorable Anna Bligh, Premier of Queensland


Subject: Opposing Execution of Protesters within 5 days

Today, 15th of January 2010, we have gathered in front of your office because we are deeply disturbed by severity and extent of human rights violations in Iran. We are here to seek your immediate action to prevent imminent executions of innocent people by the brutal regime of the Islamic Republic of Iran. These abuses are contrary to claims that Iran is a democracy, and its obligations under The Universal Declaration of Human Rights and The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.

Dear Prime Minister,
Iranian people are against unjust and harsh punishments, in 22nd of December 2009, thousands of people who opposed execution of two convicts in Sirjan, were shot at, five innocent people were killed and a large number wounded, many of them transferred to hospitals in surrounding cities including Kerman. The similar situation happened during hanging of Ehsan Fattahian in Sanandaj only a week later. People went on general strike, bazaars closed down in Kurdistan following that shameful event.


Dear Prime Minister,
Today, Iran is under dictatorship rein of the Supreme leader by backing of the most notorious commanders of IRGC, Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corporation. All the honest and responsible members of this force, especially those who defended the nation during the Iraqi invasion have been removed, retired or forced to resign.


Dear Prime Minister,
We are particularly here to protest against the proposed legislation which legalizes execution of protesters within 5 days after arrest. We believe this is another attempt to suppress the Iranian national uprising which has intensified after the fraudulent presidential election of June the 12th 2009, which returned Ahmadinejad, an IRGC representative, to power.

Dear Prime Minister,
During the last seven months, IRGC and its generously paid militia, Basij, have shot dead a number of innocent people, arrested thousands, invaded hundreds of campuses, dormitories and houses of defiant students.
Numerous impendent academics have been expelled; several reformist newspapers and student newsletters have been banned.
Detained reformists have been tortured in an attempt to force them into TV "confessions" of a foreign-led plot against the Islamic regime.



Dear Prime Minister,
The Islamic parliament, Majlis, is controlled by under cover IRGC hardliners who have occupied people’s seats by fraudulent parliamentary elections in 2006.
The National Broadcasting Organization is headed by Medhi Zarghami, another member of IRGC, appointed by the supreme leader.

The supreme leader has appointed Sadegh Larinani as the head of the Judiciary, an inexperienced and unqualified person. This appointment has been denounced by Iranian judges and top Islamic clergy.
Sadegh Larijani has appointed another IRGC commander as his deputy, General Mohammad Bagher Zolghadre.


Dear Prime Minister,
Khatam al Anibi corporationa, the industrial and commercial arm of IRGC, controls the biggest and the most and expensive national projects.
IRGC spies on all conversations and internet communications by owning 51% of Iranian Telecommunication Corporation.

Dear Prime Minister,
We ask the Australian Government to openly condemn these inhumane behaviors of the Islamic Republic of Iran and pressure them to;

* Free all the political prisoners
* Free jailed journalists, respect independence of Nation Broadcasting

Organization and the media
* Stop invading campuses and dormitories
* Stop detaining and torturing dissidents
* Respect civil rights including freedom of expression and religious beliefs
* Allow free Information access by stopping Internet filtering and bandwidth

reduction

Dear Prime Minister,
While we oppose any military action against our homeland, we do believe that there are effective mechanisms that could be implemented by the International community to support freedom lover Iranians. We sincerely offer our knowledge and support for exploring these solutions.
