Statements

Rise in protest against the anti-human crimes of the clerical regime and the splashing of acid on women and support the zealous Iranian women, especially the victims of this tragedy

Ms. Sarvnaz Chitsaz, Chair of the NCRI Women’s Committee, expressed strong abhorrence for the tragic crime of splashing acid on the faces of women and girls in different cities.

We condemn the recent wave of acid attacks against Iranian girls and women for the sole crime of being women, being beautiful and not succumbed to the clerical regime’s misogynist laws. Courageous women in Iran have been targets of attacks by plain-cloths agents and we support the Iranian women who are in the forefront of the movement to establish freedom and democracy against the mullahs’ ruling Iran and their misogynist laws.

NCRI - February 01, 2014 - State-run news media in Iran have run stories titled: "The countdown to the execution of a fifteen-year-old bride”, reporting about a 26-year-old mother facing execution on Sunday (Feb. 2) for the murder of her husband, which she denies, in the city of Isfahan.
 
Farzaneh mother of a 10 year old girl, was married to the man at the age of 15 against her will. The man was killed six years ago.

NCRI - December 02, 2013 - The Iranian regime is launching a tough new clampdown on 'improperly veiled' women in 200 towns and cities across the regime. It is the latest in a series of increasingly draconian restrictions of basic human rights under Hassan Rouhani's new 'moderate' rule.

Rouhani pledged during election campaign speeches that he 'would not allow any agent to question anyone in the street' and that 'girls should feel secure'. But only four months later, the Headquarters for Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice has announced improperly dressed women will be issued with official warning.
