Commemorating the Ahwazi Intifada - 19 April 2013 Demonstration
UNPO and the Democratic Solidarity Party of Ahwaz invite you to join them for a demonstration of solidarity with the Ahwazi people of Iran
Friday, 19 April 2013
Gathering at 12pm in Schuman Square, Brussels
In April 2005, the Ahwazi led an uprising against the Iranian government, calling for an end to the human rights violations and ethnic cleansing they are victims of. Today, the Ahwazi continue their struggle, facing poverty, illiteracy, Persianisation and the loss of their ressources. We call on the European Union to act upon such human rights violations.
This demonstration, followed by a short march, in front of the European Institutions marks the commemoration of the 8th anniversary of the 2005 intifada.
