Holding this exhibition is particularly inspiring and effective on the 32nd anniversary of the #1988Massacre of 30,000 political prisoners in #Iran, one of the most horrific cases committed by the clerical regime on Khomeini’s fatwa.

The international community must adopt a firm policy and apply maximum pressure on the regime, including by referring its #HumanRights record to the UN Security Council. #1988Massacre ImageImage

Important THREAD⬇️

1-Imagine, you wake up one day to find out that there're posters, a Twitter storm, & threats by officials of Islamic Republic of Iran calling for your kidnapping. How would you feel? I’ll show how this regime uses assassination& hostage diplomacy to silence us

Meet Tiam, the daughter of Abbas Mohammadi.

Her father, and four others in the city of Isfahan, central #Iran, may be executed any moment today, for taking part in the country's December 2017 & January 2018 protests.

This was the last time little Tiam and her brother got to see their father... with his feet in chains.

The five men facing imminent execution in Isfahan, central #Iran, had been subjected to brutal torture in prison to extract confessions.

2-#Islamic_Republic_is_not_my_choice. it's a regime taking people hostage. It sentences human rights campaigners & women's rights activists like Nasrin Sotoudeh, Narges Mohammadi, Saba Kord-Afshari, Raheleh Ahmadi, Yasaman Aryani,Monireh Arabshahi. To this list add my own brother
3-#Islamic_Republic_is_not_my_choice, as it tortures prisoners.Political prisoners like Maziar Ebrahimi, Saeed Malekpour, & many others were brutally tortured for months before they confessed.Iranian-Canadian journalist Zahra Kazemi & blogger Satar Beheshti were tortured to death

There's no justice in Iran.

You're at the mercy of erratic judges who can play with your life!

1-Political prisoner, Saba Kord-Afshari, 19, had been sentenced to 24 years.

After reducing her sentence, the judge now decided to increase it again.

Imagine this happening to you
2- Saba hasn't committed any crimes. She merely participated in #WhiteWednesdays to say no to forced hijab and #IranProtests to say no to economic mismanagement.

The authorities have arrested her mother, Raheleh, as well for supporting her daughter.
3-In a letter she wrote from prison, Saba said "we're hostages in the hands of this government".

In Iran, a judge can wake up one day and decide to increase your sentence without any legal basis, because he wants so!

Saba and many others are innocent

THREAD on Iran's economic meltdown:

The regime's Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei last Wednesday issued an Executive Order sending Iran's 2020-2021 budget bill to the Guardian Council without Parliament's approval, using the #Coronavirus crisis as an excuse.…
By bypassing lawmakers Khamenei hasn't solved Iran's economic crisis. He's simply swept it under the rug. The new budget is 20176016794000000 Rials.
~20000 trillion Rials = $480 billion (official rate) or $132 billion (actual rate). The regime has nowhere near that kind of income
Iran's 2019 budget was based on oil exports of 1.54M bpd at $54/barrel. But US sanctions brought exports as low as 100000 bpd. The new budget is based on sales of 1M bpd at $50/barrel, so income will be < last year. Oil/gas revenue is estimated at $10.83B (454986 billion Rials).

#Iran: 3 Prisoners At Risk of Execution
Amirhossein Moradi, Mohammad Rajabi and Saeed Tamjidi have been sentenced to death in
connection with acts of arson that took place during protests in November 2019. #IranProtests…
They were denied access to lawyers during the investigation phase and say they were tortured. Amirhossein Moradi says he was coerced into giving a “confession” that was broadcast on state television and used as evidence to convict them! #Iran #IranProtests
Amir Hossein Moradi is only 25 years old! He has been sentenced to 15 years of imprisonment & 74 times flogging. His father a blue color worker is a postmaster carrier motorcyclist. Amir Hossein took refuge in Germany, but did not survive the hardships of being away from family!

During the Aban month nationwide #IranProtests, the regime reportedly killed 1,500 Iranians and detained 7,000 more. Over three months have now passed since this brutal crackdown but the fate of many thousands of innocent Iranians remains unclear. #coronavirususa #COVIDー19
Now, with the rapid spread of the #Coronavirus across Iran, in light of the horrid health and safety standards in the regime’s prisons, there is further reason to be gravely concerned for the lives of Iranian political prisoners. #COVIDー19
Fear is spreading of yet another crime against humanity by the regime, this time inside the prisons. The Islamic Republic must immediately free all prisoners of conscience. #COVIDー19 #coronavirususa

1) This is Amir Hossein Moradi, 23, a protester from #IranProtests who's just been sentenced to death. One of his family members told me: "When his family saw him give forced confessions on TV, they didn't think he'd be sentenced to death this quickly" His family is devastated.
2) In my interview with one of his family members, I was told "Amir Hossein believed in freedom. He wasn't affiliated with any group. He protested like many people during #IranProtests of Nov 2019. He had previously lived in Germant for 3 years. He was forced to confess on TV"
3-The same family member said, "Amir Hossein couldn't live away. He came back to Iran to be closer to his mum & sister. Since his arrest, his family has been in a terrible state. Judge Salavati has precipitously sentenced him to death. He also faces 15 years in prison & flogging"

1-Since my brother's arrest on Sept 23, I wake up every morning & feel a void. I used to talk to him daily & now he's in Iran’s notorious Evin prison. History will write this. My brother is jailed as he refused to disown me. The regime has arrested my brother due to my activities
2-The regime deceitfully uses the charges of “campaigning against the system” and “insulting the supreme leader” to justify my brother’s imprisonment. The same regime that mercilessly killed 176 innocent people aboard Ukrainian Airlines plane while wanting to hit the Americans.
3-We’re talking about the same regime that mercilessly killed more than 1500 people in the streets of Iran during November 2019’s #IranProtests. The same regime that shut down the internet for more than 7 days while massacring these people in the streets.
