People around the world protest human rights violations in Iran

Protestors recently gathered in various cities around the world to rally against the recent wave of executions in Iran, according to the National Council of Resistance of Iran. Banners held by the protestors featured such phrases such as “Youths face execution in Iran,” and “Support democratic change in Iran.”

One of the protests was led by the supporters of the Iranian Resistance in Montreal, Canada on September 29. This was the third protest by the group in recent weeks, and the demonstrators campaigned for democratic change in Iran.

On September 30, protestors in Vancouver, Canada signed a petition declaring their solidarity with the Iranian Resistance.

In Germany, protestors gathered on September 28 and 29 to bring public attention to the repression of youth in Iran, and the execution of minors occurring under the pretext of public morals.

Demonstrations also took place in Denmark and Italy.
