Act Now: Sign the National Council of Resistance of Iran petition in support of human rights and democratic change in Iran in 2015.

Most people would wish that President Obama succeeds in striking a deal with Iran that will see it shut down its nuclear centres, halt uranium enrichment and give up permanently the goal of obtaining a nuclear weapon. Iran however, has shown next to no signs that it will forgo its nuclear weapons program. What most of us don’t know is how ordinary Iranian citizens opposed to the mullahs’ regime would feel about a “bad deal” that would see Tehran cheat its way to the bomb as it stalls world powers.

According to the United Nations and human rights organizations, Iran has the highest rate of executions per capita in the world with the situation of human rights deteriorating during the Presidency of Hassan Rouhani. Reporters Without Borders has described Iran as world’s leading jailer of female journalists and Freedom House ranked Iran as the worst country for internet freedom in 2014. A number of political prisoners, including those associated with ethnic and religious minorities have been executed. One of these prisoners was merely charged with giving financial contribution to the TV station that supports the main opposition PMOI. Girls and women have been the main victims in Iran; many were target of acid attacks for “malveiling”.
