Iran: World must strongly condemn use of lethal force against protesters as death toll rises to 161

Amnesty International:

Iran; World must strongly condemn use of lethal force against protesters as death toll rises to 161

Updated: 29 November 2019, 10:41 UTC



The confirmed number of protesters killed in Iran has risen to at least 161 protesters, according to credible reports received by Amnesty International.

The real death toll is likely to be significantly higher.


The international community must denounce the intentional lethal use of force by Iranian security forces that has resulted in the killings of at least 143 protesters since demonstrations broke out on 15 November, Amnesty International said today.

According to credible reports received by the organization, at least 143 people were killed. The deaths have resulted almost entirely from the use of firearms. One man was reported to have died after inhaling tear gas, another after being beaten. Amnesty International believes that the death toll is significantly higher and is continuing to investigate.

"The rising death toll is an alarming indication of just how ruthless the treatment of unarmed protesters has been by the Iranian authorities and reveals their appalling assault on human life," said Philip Luther, Research and Advocacy Director for the Middle East and North Africa at Amnesty International.

An Open Letter to the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights on Repression in Iranian Kurdistan

A Joint Letter to Denounce Iran's Crackdown and to Save the Lives of Thousands of Detainees


To: Dr. Michelle Bachelet Jeria

United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights

Palais Wilson, United Nations; the Office of High Commissioner for Human Rights
Geneva, Switzerland

Dear High Commissioner,

Over the last week you like many of us you have recollected scattered scenes of heinous crimes against protesters in Iran and wondered about the Orwellian nightmare that has reined over Iran under the Islamic Republic of Iran. As the result of "the political panic" that the ISI has felt, it shutdown Internet and stifled every form of communication within and across Iranian communities to prevent any depictions and coverage of its acts of terrorism so that to nip in the bud the legitimate protests against the sudden hike in fuel cost. Using its terror network and propaganda inside the country, it managed to repress the digital coverage of the protests.

The Demise of the American Empire and The Kurds

Los Angeles, USA November 4th, 2019 

Recent American troops pull out of Syrian Kurdish region (Rojava) by an order from President Trump and granting green light to Turkey to send in Turkish troops to slaughter the Kurdish population is illegal, immoral and inhumane. It is back stabbing and betrayal of the most reliable ally by the United States.

President Trumps knew exactly what the consequences would be, mass killing of Kurdish civilians and the destruction of Rojava's infrastructure, creation of refugees by hundreds of thousands (so far 275,000 refugees and hundreds dead), a new generation of orphans, resurgence of ISIS, more than 800 ISIS members have escaped prisons held by Kurds and opened by Turkish bombing. Turkish invasion can engulf the region in an endless and unpredictable war. 

When asked Donald Trump why a sudden pull out American troops and leaving the Kurdish people without protection, the most reliable American and Western ally, his response was: "Well they (Kurds) didn't help us in Normandy, they didn't help the United States in WWII"... this statement indicates the President's lack of understanding of politics, geography and history.

Kurds vs. CAIR: Turkish Cash Prompts Protests at Islamist Group’s LA Banquet

NOVEMBER 20, 2019

Halloween ended two days prior, but on the evening of November 2, 2019, plenty of monsters and heroes walked about the Anaheim Hilton, just across the street from Disneyland. Two big events bumped up against each other, each constructed on fantasy worlds and drawing distinctly-attired attendees. But the real world intruded upon their fantasy in the form of pro-freedom protesters.

The Anaheim convention center was hosting "BlizzCon," celebrating computer game company Blizzard Entertainment, responsible for such titles as World of Warcraft and Starcraft. Thus, numerous individuals were fully decked out in "cosplay" attire, from ogres and elves to sorceresses and space soldiers.

In clothes of a different sort were the event's protesters: pro-Hong Kong demonstrators, some sporting Winnie the Pooh outfits, a satisfying jab at China's authoritarian leader Xi Jinping, who has been savagely mocked for resembling the lovable bear with a very little brain. (Blizzard has chosen the predictably corporate and wrong side in the Hong Kong vs. China question.)
