Marking October 10th, the World Day Against The Death Penalty, it is worth noting that #Iran has the world’s highest number of executions per capita.

#Iran is also home to the execution of minors.

“Iran should immediately and unconditionally end the use of the death penalty for crimes committed by children under age 18, and move toward a complete ban on capital punishment.”

Call to bring to justice the masterminds & perpetrators of the #1988Massacre
@PoliticalCow @omarbula @perpetuok @1954candanga @ChristianRep
The #1988Massacre remains to be one of the darkest stains in modern history, as one of the least exposed and discussed massacres, where the perpetrators of this crime to this day are guarded with impunity.
#Call4Justice
#Iran - The pervasive silence of the past 3 decades must be shattered. The UN needs to launch an independent investigation into one of the most hideous crimes against humanity after the Second World War.
