Friday 12th of August

CONFERENCE Extermination of Political Prisoners under the Regime of Islamic republic of Iran:  In the course of two months, in the summer of 1988, more than 15000 political prisoners in Iran were brutally massacred after a summary trail of 2-3 minutes. It was a kind of Inquisition under which political prisoners were exterminated, because of the suspicion of the authorities about their alternative way of thinking. Today, with more than 27 years of consistent struggle by the members of families, friends, and political activists, the movement for the remembrance of victims is getting more and more momentum. It is unfortunate that after 27 years, there are lots of mysteries about this horrible case of crimes against humanity in Iran. It is, however, promising that this grass root- movement is bringing many aspects of this hidden crime to the fore, in the face of the total denial of authorities and their execution gangs. Please note that the policy of extermination has been continuing by the Islamic Republic of Iran since the revolution in Iran happened in 1979 till now specially in years 80’s.
