About Iran, Mr. Tunne Kelam Member of the European Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee

Subject: Demonstrations in Iran
Date: 30 December 2017

Tens of thousands of Iranians are demonstrating in different cities all over Iran against dismal living conditions, against lack of hope for any real improvement, be it economic, social or political. This is a clear indication that people cannot be endlessly misled and intimidated. Iranian youth and women, who are suffering most from absence of perspective for dignified life and work, are among the first to challenge the clerical dictatorship.
The current demonstrations show also a different quality in putting the blame directly on the highest leaders, on the president Rouhani and supreme religious leader Khamenei. It is remarkable that Iranian citizens perceive the connection between Tehran’s continued military expansion in Syria and elsewhere in the Middle East and their dramatically worsening living standards at home.
Today, it is time to finally draw lessons from the massive demonstrations against the 2009 election fraud, where Western democracies lacked resolve to side with the Iranian people. Today, the hopes that the 2015 nuclear deal and the subsequent ending of sanctions would stimulate Iranian peaceful development and benefit its people, have clearly proved illusionary.
Today, it is time for the EU to face the realities of the Iranian dictatorship that has brought misery to its citizens, continues jailing and hanging them on record scale, is engaged in military expansion all over the Middle East, boosts its ballistic missile program and collaborates closely with the North Korean dictator. Western clinging to desperate belief in “reformed” and “moderate” dictators is nothing less than appeasement.
Taking the side of Iranian people who have suffered for 38 years under one of the cruellest regimes in the world is not just a condescending gesture of humanitarian nature. It is equally about the values and credibility of the EU and its future.

More than 700 activists have made a request to Iraqi government

According to Komala Party of Iranian Kurdistan’s December 9th 2017 statement; on November 17, Iraqi government is responsible for the lives of two Kidnapped Iranian Kurdish opposition in Iraq.
International Community
International Human Right Organizations,
According to Komala Party of Iranian Kurdistan’s December 9th 2017 statement; on November 17, 2017 two members of this party were on regular trip to Erbil, the capital of KRG, and mistakenly entered an Iraqi check point on Kirkuk’s territory. The check point was under the control of Hashed Al Shabi (MPF), The militias illegally and immediately detained Rashid Afshari and Saad Moazez in an unknown location. As stated in the Komalah’s press release “the detainees were traveling with legal documentation and they had no intention to breach any laws or regulations of the country. Due to many evidences, Mr. Afsahari and Mr. Moazez were kidnapped by MPF thus, unfortunately their destiny is unpredictable and in great danger”. During the last few weeks, Komala Party of Iranian Kurdistan has tried all available means and paths, to find the location of its kidnapped members. However, all of the party’s endeavors have failed to lead to the two’s release. Therefore, we the signatory of this petition call on the international community, Iraqi authorities and human rights INGOs/IGOs to put pressure on the Iraqi government to free the aforementioned detainees. Iraq is a signatory member of many international laws, declarations’ and protocols, hence, the Iraqi government should accept its legal responsibilities and release Mr. Moazez and Mr. Afsari.

Komala and UNPO jointly paid a visit to the European Parliament in Brussels and to discuss the urgent human rights issues in Iran.

On the 22nd of November, Komala and UNPO jointly paid a visit to the European Parliament in Brussels and to discuss the urgent human rights issues in Iran. Meetings were held with members or assistant of members of the Iranian delegation, the Human Rights Subcommittee and Foreign Affairs. We met with MEP Jytte Guteland, Zsuzsanna Ferency, Franseco Agnello and Damiano Zoffoli to discuss how the earthquake affected the region and under what severe conditions victims of the earthquake have to live. Furthermore, it was discussed that there is an urgent need for action, as victims are freezing to death because of the cold and foreign access to supply aid such as food, water and medicines are being denied by the Iranian government. Furthermore, the case of Ramin and his immanent death sentence was discussed to inform them about the case and request for their assistance and the overall human rights violations against minorities in Iran.

In the earthquake area, the Iranian government decided to call back Artesh and to replace them with Sepah,

On Sunday 21 November at 21:48 a tremendous earthquake took place 30 kilometers northwest of Sar-e-Pul Zahab and 32 kilometers southwest of Halabja, felt by about 150 million people. Approximately more than  2000 people found death as a result. The exact amount of casualties is still unknown however, since many still have to be removed from the rubble.

Right befor the earthquake took place, ambulances with medical assistance were send to Karbala, a Shiite city in Iraq, instead of helping out Iranian Kurdish civilians. Therefore, there were no medical facilities for the victims in Iran. The villages that were destroyed because of the earthquake were meant for low income employees and it were these people, the poorest amongst the populations, that were therefore struck the hardest.

One day after the earthquake, clothing, food and other aid was provided in the Kurdistan area. The next day however, the government decided to control the popular highways to stop the aid cars from handing over aid to the victims. The government furthermore even prevents foreign aid. Doctors Without Borders has repeatedly requested the Iranian government to let them in from the Iraqi border, but the government won’t allow them to. Even journalists are denied access into the area.

Self-made tents are severely damaged by the rain and several have collapsed. The past week, people have even frozen to death as a result of the cold and rain. Therefore, it is extremely important to take immediate action, as survivors of the earthquake are getting more and more ill. The social media show a very bad situation in the area. Right after the earth quake Artesh, the army of the Iranian government, helped to search for survivors of the earthquake under the rubble. Recently however, the Iranian government decided to call back Artesh and to replace them with Sepah, which resulted in military control of the area without any assistance in the search for victims or survivors of the earthquake.

UNPO Side-Event to the 36th Session of the UNHRC: Enforced Disappearances in Iran and the Assault on the Fundamental Rights

Mr Peshko Khosravi, representative of the Komala Party, emphasized the surveillance apparatus put in place against the population and political dissidents. He reported the case of Narmin Karimi, who was captured by security forces at her place in exchange of her hiding brothers – they never heard back from her. Mr Khosravi’s took the opportunity to denounce the increasing militarization of Kurdish cities in Iran, evident with his friend’s case in Sanandaj, who was arrested 30 minutes after his arrival to hospital, while receiving medical assistance. Criticizing the international community’s misconception of the Iranian President Hassan Rohani, assumed to be a moderate, Mr Khosravi clarified that, in fact, human rights violations have increased tremendously under his mandates as he benefits from the lack of international pressure.

Enforced Disappearances in Iran and the Assault on Fundamental Rights

Enforced Disappearances in Iran and the Assault on Fundamental Rights:

On Wednesday September 20, Komala’s representative Peshko Khosravi participated in a meeting in Geneva organized by the Nonviolent Radical Party, Transnational and Transparty (NPRTT) in cooperation with the Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organization (UNPO).
Khosravi says that he wanted to “unmask the numbers and statistics behind the Iranian regimes systematic use of enforced disappearances as a weapon of mass destruction against political dissidents and their families” by introducing the audience to the local stories and fates of some of his own family members and their neighbors who were subjected to enforced disappearances, torture, forced displacements and executions. “The logic in abducting innocent teenage girls or displacing and impoverishing old people was simple”, Khosravi stressed, “it was solely to punish my father and his two brothers for their political activism that they abducted their younger sisters and inflicted unspeakable horrors upon them while forcibly displacing their old parents far away from their home to a camp in the other end of Iran.”

Ongoing protests in the Kurdistan region against the killing of two more kolber workers.

Over the past few days, several demonstrations took place in the Kurdistan area of Iran, leading to several injured and detained by the Iranian regime. Demonstrations started on September 4, 2017 after two kolber workers, Kader Bahrami (41) and Haider Faraji (21), were killed near the Iraqi-Iranian border for smuggling small goods.
On September 5, residents of Baneh demonstrated against the killing of Kader and Haider and Iran’s human rights violations by closing down their shops and taking the streets. Iran’s regime however forced them to stop these protests after which residents of Sanandaj decided to take the streets and close down their shops as well and on September 7 to show their support. Government forces responded by using tear gas to disperse these protest and by arresting dozens of Kurds. Currently, demonstrations are ongoing in the Kurdish provinces.
Iran has seen many changes over the past few years, many of which were welcomed by Iranians as well as international powers, assuming that the nuclear deal and the appointment of president Rohani would result in important political changes within Iran. One of these assumptions was that Iran would become more open and tolerant, which in the longer run would result in a decrease in human rights abuses.
Unfortunately, 5 years after the appointment of president Rohani and 3 year after the nuclear deal, it is fair to state that human rights abuses in Iran have increased significantly. While many of you might know this, only few are aware of the extreme extend of these human rights abuses by the Iranian regime within the Kurdistan area, the North-Western part of Iran.
Every week, several unarmed Kurdish kolber workers and their horses are killed by Iranian soldiers for smuggling small goods at the Iranian border crossing near neighboring Iraqi and Turkish Kurdish regions, leading to over a hundred deaths a year. Many of those that are not directly killed are left to bleed to death or are denied medical access after being detained. In some cases, families even have to pay for the bullets that killed their family member or family members are left with no other option then to pay ransom in order to receive the body of their loved one back.
Although kolber workers, which stands for ‘back delivery’, are well aware of the dangers they face, the Iranian regime leaves them with no other option then to smuggle small goods. This is the direct result of the discriminatory economic policies imposed on the Kurdistan areas of Iran. The Kurdish population has relied on agriculture as a source of revenue, which has been affected detrimentally by government policies of laying land mines in agricultural fields and closing borders and land vital for the relocation of livestock for agricultural production in the region.
Furthermore, the Kurdish region is economically underfunded and exploited by the central government. They receive a very small budget from the central government, which has resulted in the highest unemployment and suicide rate of Iran within this area.
The central government sees no interest in investing in the Kurdish area, leaving the Kurds in Iran economically deprived.
This is in direct contradiction to the Iranian constitution’s Article 48, which states that ‘there must be no discrimination among the various provinces with regard to the exploitation of natural resources, utilization of public revenues, and distribution of economic activities among the various provinces and regions of the country, thereby ensuring that every region has access to the necessary capital and facilities in accordance with its needs and capacity for growth’.
The institutionalized violence by the Iranian regime towards the Kurdish minority in Iran, which consists of 13 million Kurds, continues on a daily basis. To end this violence, we need the help of the international community to put an end to the human rights abuses towards these kolber workers and to abide by Article 48 of the Iranian Constitution.
