Rally organized against Iranian president in France on January 28th: Protestors say #No2Rouhani

Posted: January 21, 2016 at 8:09 am   /   by

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 throughout the time that Rouhani has served in office.

More than 2,000 people have been executed during Hassan Rouhani’s tenure as President of the regime. This is the highest rate of executions in the past 25 years which has already secured Iran’s place as the nation with the most executions per capita.

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.

The protest will take place in Trocadero Square in Paris on January 28 – the same day Rouhani also plans to be visiting Paris. Banners with Twitter hashtags #No2Rouhani and #StopExecutionsIran will be displayed to show human rights abuses in Iran.
