NCRI – Iranians residing in Sweden are today on Day 3 of a three-day hunger strike in Stockholm in solidarity with the victims of the recent mass executions in Iran. They are calling on the Swedish government to make respect for human rights in Iran a key priority before upgrading ties with the mullahs’ regime.
Members of the Swedish-Iranian community began a three day sit-in on Thursday at Mynttorget, Stockholm, to highlight the alarming human rights situation in Iran and to condemn the recent mass executions of Sunni political prisoners in the country.
A number of the protesters are on a three-day hunger strike in solidarity with Iranian political prisoners who are under heavy pressure by the regime and are denied access to medical treatment as a means to torture them.
The Swedish-Iranian supporters of the main Iranian opposition group People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI or MEK) also commemorated the 28th anniversary of the massacre of 30,000 political prisoners in 1988 in Iran. The political prisoners were mainly affiliated to the PMOI (MEK).
The protesters in Stockholm are urging the Swedish government to recognize this 1988 massacre as a crime against humanity and to act in both the European Union and United Nations to demand those responsible for this heinous crime be brought to justice at the International Criminal Court.
The Swedish-Iranian community called on the Swedish government and Foreign Minister Margot Wallström to condemn the recent mass execution of Sunni political prisoners and increase pressure on the mullahs’ regime for an immediate halt to executions, torture and arbitrary arrests in Iran.
