Ahvazi Arabs: Prisoners of the day

15 arrested protesting executions

Radio Zamaneh: Fifteen people were arrested in Ahvaz Thursday during protests against the execution of four political prisoners [videos].

The Human Rights Activists News Agency reports that following the execution of four Arab political prisoners in Ahvaz, the city erupted in protests, during which at least 15 people were arrested.

Three brothers — Taha, Nasser, and Abbas Heydarian — together with Ali Sharifi Naami were transferred to an unknown location on June 9, and 10 days later their families were informed that the prisoners had been executed.

The four had been arrested in April of 2011 during protests in the Mallashieh neighborhood of Ahvaz.

Reports from their cellmates indicate that they had been subjected to torture in prison. They were charged with murdering a security officer, but their families insist that the charges were false and any confessions extracted from them were coerced.

In recent years, Khuzestan Province has seen several mass protests, which have triggered a severe government crackdown.

Protesters claim the government treats the Arab community with widespread discrimination in housing and employment as well as social and political rights.

Iran & Bahrain need a population exchange

Transfer the Iranian Arab Sunni Muslims to Bahrain and send the Bahraini Shia to Iran.  Then there will be peace.  It worked for Greece and Turkey after WW1.

At least they were not put in prison or Gallow!



درود بر تمام ایرانیان مبارز


Iranians of all walks of life taking a stand for their freedom and just rights.  They are to be commanded and supported by all freedom loving folks.


  Iranians need to stand united in their support for these brave souls, support their goals and aspiration for a  free independent and prospers Iran. 

 Foreign nations which thru their apartheid policy practice the same insanity and unjust detentions cannot be a good example for the future of Iran and need not to apply. 


'Hambastegi' is the main key to victory 



Islamist Rapists

by Fred on

Regime change is the only way to end the endless gross violation of human rights by the unreformable Messianic Islamist Rapists, “reformist” and all.

Backbreaking airtight sanctions plus air/naval quarantine is a must.
