Protestors of the Iranian regime will rally against increased Iranian human rights violations under president Hassan Rouhani. Protesters intend to call attention to the number of executions carried out by the Iranian government while Rouhani has served in office.
Hassan Rouhani’s presidency has an abysmal track record when it comes to human rights. Despite Rouhani running on the perception of a moderate platform, Iran still executes more people per capita than any other country in the world, including at least 694 people between January 1 and September 15 of 2015.
Women and young people see some of the harshest human rights violations: Iran is still the worst offender when it comes to juvenile executions, and a law in 2013 made it permissible for men to marry their adoptive daughters – a law Rouhani implemented himself.
Iranians and their allies have already joined together online under the hashtags #No2Rouhani and #StopExecutionsIran. The protest will take place in Trocadero Square in Paris on January 28 – the same day Rouhani also plans to be visiting Paris.
