Human Rights Watch
For Immediate Release
Iran: New Arrests of Labor Activists Overturn Convictions, Drop Charges, and Free Peaceful Union Advocates
(New York, January 30, 2012) –
Iranian authorities should immediately release dozens of labor and independent trade union activists imprisoned for speaking out peacefully in defense of workers, Human Rights Watch said today. Convictions solely for the peaceful exercise of freedom of association and assembly should be quashed, and charges should be dropped against others facing prosecution for these reasons, Human Rights Watch said.The latest round of arrests took place in Iran’s Tehran, East Azerbaijan and Kurdistan provinces. The authorities summoned four activists in mid-January 2012 to begin serving long sentences imposed in 2011. On January 28, authorities arrested Alireza Akhavan, a teacher and labor rights activist, in his home in Tehran. It is not know where he is currently being held. On January 18, security forces arrested Mohammad Jarrahi in his home in Tabriz. Three days earlier, intelligence agents arrested Shahrokh Zamani, another Tabriz labor rights leader, and summoned two others also in Tabriz. Authorities also arrested Shays Amani, a prominent rights activist and member of an independent trade union in the city of Sanandaj on January 16. Earlier in the month authorities detained Mehdi Shandeez and transferred to Ward 350 of Evin prison in Tehran. All those arrested are labor activists or members of independent trade unions not authorized by the government.“Independent trade unions have played a critical role in protecting workers’ rights under Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s presidency,” said Joe Stork, deputy Middle East director at Human Rights Watch. “This latest round of arrests continues a long and ugly tradition of targeting independent trade unions to enforce full state control over these groups.”Authorities initially arrested Zamani on June 7, 2011, in connection with his activities as a member of an independent painters’ syndicate and a board member of the Committee to Pursue the Establishment of Labor Unions. Branch 1 of the Revolutionary Court in Tabriz sentenced him to 11 years in prison for “participating in the organization of an unlawful group opposing the state … with the aim of disrupting national security by way of workers’ strikes and armed rebellion,” “assembly and collusion to further illegal activities,” and “propaganda against the regime.”In the same case, the court sentenced Jarrahi, who was arrested on June 20, to five years in prison for organizing an “unlawful” group called the Democratic Workers Movement, and Nima Pouryaghoub to five years on the same charge plus an additional year for “propaganda against the regime.” Sassan Vahebivash was sentenced to six months for related activities. Pouryaghoub and Vahebivash are engineering students at Tabriz’s Azad University.Authorities freed the four defendants after they posted bail, but, in November 2011, Branch 6 of the East Azerbaijan appeals’ court confirmed the original sentences handed down by the trial court. Authorities did not summon the defendants to serve their prison terms until this year.According to Iranian media reports, Amani, a prominent labor rights activist in Sanandaj (Kurdistan province) and a board member of the Iran Free Workers’ Union (IFWU), was arrested after he went to the prosecutor’s office in Sanandaj to inquire about the status of two other activists who had been detained earlier in January.Human Rights Watch is concerned about the well-being of several other prominent labor and trade union activists currently serving prison sentences, including Reza Shahabi, Ali Nejati, Ebrahim Madadi, and Behnam Ebrahimzadeh. Madadi is vice-president and Shahabi is treasurer of the Syndicate of Workers of Tehran and Suburbs Bus Company (SWTSBC). Madadi is serving a three-and-a-half-year sentence on charges of endangering national security. Shahabi was arrested on June 12, 2010. A revolutionary court in Tehran tried him of endangering national security and “propaganda against the state” on May 25, 2011, but there has been no ruling in his case yet.According to a source familiar with his case, Shahabi spent 18 months in Tehran’s Evin prison without charge, including several months in solitary confinement, and suffers from serious neck and back pain. Shahabi is in Imam Khomeini hospital in Tehran after ending a 30-day hunger strike on December 22 to protest his detention and the authorities’ refusal to provide proper medical care.Two other activists, Ali Nejati and Behnam Ebrahimzadeh, who are serving one and five-year prison terms, respectively, on national security charges related to their independent trade union activities, also suffer from serious medical conditions. According to information received by Human Rights Watch, both Nejati and Ebrahimzadeh asked for long-term furloughs from prison so they could seek proper medical care, but judicial officials have denied their requests.Nejati is a former president and current board member of the Haft Tappeh Sugar Cane Workers’ Syndicate (HTSCW), and is in Ahvaz’s Dezful prison in southwest Iran. Ebrahimzadeh is in Evin prison.The IFWU and the bus workers’ and sugar cane workers’ unions, are among the largest and most active independent trade unions in Iran. Iran’s labor law does not recognize the right to create labor unions independent of government-sanctioned groups. Since 2005, authorities have repeatedly harassed, summoned, arrested, convicted, and sentenced workers who are affiliated with these independent trade unions and harassed their families.Most of these arrests have taken place during International Workers’ Day celebrations or strikes the unions have called, often for back wages that have not been paid for months. Mansour Osanlou, the current president of the bus workers’ group, was sentenced to five years in prison on charges of “acting against the national security” and “propaganda against the state” following several arrests between 2005 and 2007. Authorities allowed Osanlou to leave Evin prison in June after he had served about four years of his sentence, but could still summon him to serve the rest. Human Rights Watch called on the judiciary to quash Osanlou’s sentence.Independent unions have protested amendments to the current labor law introduced by President Ahmadinejad. The amendments, currently being reviewed by Iran’s parliament, make it easier for employers to fire workers and reduce workers’ benefits such as annual vacation days.Article 22 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR), and Article 8 of the International Covenant on Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights (ICESCR) protect the right to form and join labor unions. Iran is a signatory to both of these treaties. Iran is also a member of International Labour Organization (ILO), but has so far refused to sign covenants 87 (Freedom of Association and the Protection of the Right to Organize Convention) and 98 (Right to Organize and Collective Bargaining Convention) of the ILO treaty.“Labor activists have been at the forefront of the struggle for freedom of association and assembly in Iran, and they have paid a heavy price,” Stork said. “Iranian law should recognize the right to organize independent unions and release activists who have committed no crime other than representing the interests of their constituents.”

39 political prisoners in a Statement: First Step towards National Sovereignty is the Freedom of Mr. Musavi ,his wife Zahra Rahnavard And Mr. Karoubi

On March 2nd Iranian people will march against made up /illegal parliamentary election!
This is at least what it seems to happen.
according to report released 39 political prisoners in a statement from prison asked Iranian people to inform everyone about the coming planned and engineered parliamentary election by regime on March 2nd and to put effort for the release of two leaders of the Green Movement Mr. Mir Hossein Musavi and his wife Zahra Rahnavard and Mr. Mehdi Karoubi who are apparently in solitary confinement and their families are forbiden by Khamenei's security forces to see them.
Mr. Musavi ( former prime minister of the Islamic Republic ) and Karoubi ( former speaker of the parliament) are in prison for the last 11 months.
Regime organized a presidential election coup in June 2009 and people protested in millions against that for almost a year of unrest and now regime is again planning to organize a made up parliamentary election coup on March 2,2012 close to Iranian New Year.While former reformists are either in jail or under watchful eyes of the security forces and have announced not participating in the coming election( Like members of the Mosharekat Party and Mojahedin Enghelabe Eslami organization),the other Iranian political opposition group outside Iran also announced boycotting the coming parliamentary election.They are:
1-Iran Republican United
2-Kurdistan Democratic Party of Iran
3-People's Democrati Party of Iran
4-Kurdistan Kumeleh Party of Iran
5-Iran National Front -Europe
6-Organization of the Iranian People's Fedaian United
7-Organization of the Iranian People's Fedaian (Majority)
8-Coordinating Committee of the Provisional Council of Iran Left Socialists
9-Coordinating Council of Iran Democrat & Secular Republican Movement

Based on reports,it seems that people mobilization for a massive boycott or protest on March 2,2012 will bring the Islamic despotic regime to its knees.

IRAN WATCH CANADA will update and bring more news to you about the discourse and plan /decision making by the oppositions.

Human Rights Watch’s World Report

Iran: Authorities Defiant on Rights Record Executions Soar, Activists and Dissidents Systematically Suppressed
(New York, January 22, 2012) – Iranian authorities in 2011 carried out more than 600 executions and imprisoned more journalists and bloggers than any other country, Human Rights Watch said today in issuing its World Report 2012 Iran chapter. Iran’s judiciary works hand-in-hand with security and intelligence forces to harass, imprison and convict opposition and rights activists, despite increasing international condemnation of the country’s rights record.In March the United Nations Human Rights Council appointed Ahmed Shaheed to be the first special rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Iran since 2002. Since Shaheed’s appointment the Iranian government has refused him entry to the country, executed more than 400 prisoners – including people convicted of committing crimes when they were children, and prosecuted dozens of outspoken lawyers, journalists, and rights activists for their peaceful speech and associational activities. In February the authorities placed the 2009 presidential candidates Mir Hossein Mousavi and Mehdi Karroubi under house arrest, where they remain.“The Iranian government crushes all voices of opposition while scoffing at the international community’s growing concern over human rights,” said Sarah Leah Whitson, Middle East director at Human Rights Watch.In its 676-page World Report 2012, Human Rights Watch assesses progress on human rights during the past year in more than 90 countries, including popular uprisings in the Arab world that few would have imagined. Given the violent forces resisting the “Arab Spring,” the international community has an important role to play in assisting the birth of rights-respecting democracies in the region, Human Rights Watch said in the report.In Iran, the authorities carried out more than 600 executions, according to several rights groups, even though the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights and four UN experts pressed Iranian officials for an immediate moratorium on the death penalty, “particularly for drug-related and juvenile cases.” Government sources announced only around 350 of these executions. The vast majority were for drug-related offenses, including trafficking and possession. The pace of executions accelerated following the entry into force in December 2010 of an amended anti-narcotics law, drafted by the Expediency Council and approved by Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.Despite the hundreds of executions, Yuri Fedotov, executive director of the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), made no mention of the wave of executions taking place in Iran for drug-related offenses and praised the country’s anti-drug efforts during a visit to Tehran in July. The UNODC has provided up to $22 million since 2005 to support training projects for Iran’s anti-drug forces, and the European commission, European Union member states, and several other governments including Japan, Norway, Australia and Canada, provide money, technical assistance, and legislative support to Iran’s anti-drug efforts.Iran also led the world in the reported execution of people convicted of offenses they allegedly committed before age 18, despite the prohibition on such executions under international law. Iranian law allows capital punishment for people who have reached puberty, defined as age 9 for girls and 15 for boys. The judiciary allowed the execution of at least three children in 2011.Authorities have executed at least 30 people since January 2010 on the charge of moharebeh (“enmity against God”), for alleged ties to armed or terrorist groups. On January 9, 2012, a revolutionary court in Tehran sentenced Amir Mirzaei Hekmati, an Iranian-American, to death on charges of moharebeh, “corruption on earth,” and espionage. The judiciary sentenced Hekmati after authorities detained him for more than four months without providing him access to a lawyer, his family, or the Swiss consular officials who represent American interests in Iran.As of December 42 journalists and bloggers were in prison in Iran, according to the Committee to Protect Journalists. More than 60 journalists were forced into exile in 2011 alone, and authorities have shut down at least 40 publications since 2009. On January 17, 2012, Iran’s Supreme Court confirmed the death sentence for blogger Saeed Malekpour, a Canadian resident who was convicted of “insulting and desecrating Islam” in October 2011. At least two other individuals have been sentenced to death by the judiciary on internet-related charges. The government blocks certain websites that carry political news and analysis, slows down internet speeds to hinder web access, and jams foreign satellite broadcasts.In January 2011 a revolutionary court sentenced Nasrin Sotoudeh, a prominent rights lawyer, to 11 years in prison and barred her from practicing law and leaving the country for 20 years on charges of “acting against the national security” and “propaganda against the regime.” The judiciary later reduced her sentence to six years and a 10-year ban on travel and practicing law. The judiciary prosecuted, convicted, or sentenced several other prominent lawyers to prison terms and bans on the practice of law. Earlier in the year Sadegh Larijani, the Head of the Judiciary, warned lawyers that they should refrain from giving interviews that damage the government’s reputation.On January 10, 2012, the Interior Ministry’s election commission disqualified several dozen candidates from running in the upcoming March 2 parliamentary elections because of their “lack of adherence to Islam and the Constitution.” The disqualified candidates include several incumbents who were critical of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s government. In November and December reformist and opposition activists, some of whom are currently serving prison terms, issued several statements calling the parliamentary elections a sham and concluding there was no reason to field candidates. In December the Iranian judiciary announced that anyone calling for a boycott of the upcoming parliamentary elections would be subject to prosecution.Mousavi and Karroubi were placed under house arrest in February 2011 after they called for mass protests. Several days earlier, beginning on February 8, security forces had arbitrarily arrested dozens of political opposition members in Tehran and several other cities.“The continued detention of Mousavi and Karroubi, not to mention the dozens of reformist candidates arrested after the disputed 2009 presidential election, is a reminder to all of us that Iran’s human rights crisis is linked to the demand of citizens to participate in free and fair elections,” Whitson said.

Iranian in the green movement are preparing to boycott the coming Parliamentary election in March !

March 2nd ,2012 will mark the ninth Parliamentary( Majles ) election in Iran. Once again this event will bring fear among regime officials for yet another uprising of Iranian people against Islamic Republic regime in Iran and discussion among the opposition how to look into this opportunity to rethink and reorganiz the mostly young Iranian to boycott or show a kind of referendum for not participating nationwide in this coming election.
While regime is spending more money into organizing its own show of force and propaganda , the opposition in the green movement need to bring more political figure and parties or personalities around the table to discuss for a successful boycott of this election.

According to report, "The Coordinating Council of the Green Path of Hope " is asking all activists and supporters of green movement particularly the youth and students to find a way to protest and curb the Islamic Republic dictatorship from February 21 - March 2nd the day of the parliamentary election.

Since regime electoral machines( The guardian council) rejected almost all the former reformists to enter into the election race, this coming parliamentary election has a special meaning for Iranian people. Regime is trying to prepare for a made up election and let more ultra conservative and radical Islamist to enter into the Majles.

In the past Mr. Mehdi Karoubi one of Green Movement leader who is now in a security controled house arrest said:
"Regime is trying to have an ordered or made up election."

Farokh Negahdar former leader of the Fedaian Khalgh majority who live in exile in London in an interview with "Jaras" website said : There is a possibilities that people will decide by a massive strike to boycott the election and through this they will push the regime back . He believes people will challenge what Khamenei the leader of the Islamic Republic regime in Iran have said: Khamenei in the past said: "We expect to have a more enthusiastic election than before.". Mr. Negahdar believes on March 2,2012 Iranian people will say a Big NO to regime's made up election and it will become a national solidarity among all Iranian and a day of the great test.

A week in Cuba and what a coincidents!?

A week of stay in Cuba coincided with Ahmadinejad's travel to Cuba and latin America.
I was in Havana market this past week when i encounter six Islamic Republic security forces (two by two ), looking for something in that market,Perhaps Ahmadinejad's wife ( Which i didn't see) or his delegates were in that market. However ,If i had encountered Ahmadinejad in that market place ,i would have welcomed him with a plate full of cream cake at his face in the sake of all Iranian political prisoners,cheating presidential election almost three years ago by a coup and killing many Iranian young protesters.

Latin American Nation and Daniel Ortega or Fidel Castro/Raul Castro and... must know that , by Inviting Ahmadinejad to presidential innagural office ( Ortega's case) or in their country, are ignoring the struggle of Iranian people for freedom and democracy.
