We are writing to invite you to join us at a photo exhibition on Human Rights Conditions in Iran organized for November 18th, 19th, and 20th in the U.S. Senate Russell Rotunda.
As you know, Iranian regime is among the world’s most notorious violators of human rights. Iranian government executes more per capita than any other nation in the world, even as its’ President Hassan Rouhani paints a moderate and diplomatically savvy image.
In his yearly report, U.N.’s special rapporteur for human rights in Iran noted that the country’s rights situation and the number of executions remain alarming despite the nuclear deal. Juvenile executions were specially noted, as were various forms of torture, surgical removal of eyes, flogging, and limb amputations.
We invite you to participate, believing fully that your participation will greatly empower our community’s efforts to address rights violations in Iran and help enable democratic change by the Iranian people.
