Saturday, September 16th, marked the solemn anniversary of the tragic death of the Iranian girl, Mahsa Gina Amini. A year ago, authorities of the Iranian regime tragically took the life of an innocent girl, falsely justifying their actions by citing her inadequate hair coverage.

While the untimely demise of Mahsa was deeply saddening, it signaled the beginning of the decline of oppressive governance. As horrifying as this act was, it galvanized a collective consciousness amongst Iranians, leading to the historic ” Woman, Life, Freedom” movement. In this uprising, Iranians of all ages, weary of outdated beliefs and political deception, took to the streets. Their sustained and fervent protests showcased their unwavering determination to bring about significant political and social reforms in Iran, for the world to witness.
Over the past year, the unwavering and collective participation of Iranians, especially the brave and tenacious young women and girls who spearheaded this transformative movement, evolved this societal protest into a political revolution. Their dedication aims to permanently dismantle the pillars of ignorance, eliminating superstition, unawareness, and violence.

In recognition of this, while we honor and remember all those who sacrificed for this monumental movement, the International Organisation to Preserve Human Rights urges all Iranian citizens, global human rights advocates, and civic activists to firmly and actively support the Iranian people’s revolution. This movement’s goal is to instate and uplift human rights values in Iran, championed by its very citizens.

The International Organisation to Preserve Human Rights emphasizes to governments worldwide that the year-long persistent struggle of Iranian citizens against the present regime stands as undeniable evidence of its illegitimacy. This Organisation, therefore, earnestly calls upon all governments, especially those who advocate democratic values, to cease their support for the unauthorized regime in Iran, upholding the rights of its citizens to chart their own course.

Furthermore, in light of the clear determination displayed by Iranian citizens over the past year, voicing their desire for regime change, the The International Organisation to Preserve Human Rights seeks the global community’s backing in facilitating a national referendum in Iran. This referendum should be supervised by delegates from reputable international bodies such as the United Nations and the European Union. Additionally, we demand the immediate suspension of the current Iranian regime’s membership in all international assemblies, notably the United Nations and its associated committees, until the outcome of the referendum clearly establishes the political system chosen by the Iranian populace.

In conclusion, the International Organisation to Preserve Human Rights urges all human rights-supporting governments to go beyond mere verbal endorsements of the Iranian people’s revolution — a revolution rooted in human rights values and the pursuit of freedom. We encourage these governments to adopt concrete measures, such as curbing political and diplomatic relations with the unauthorized regime governing Iran. In doing so, they can demonstrate their unwavering commitment to the fundamental values that underpin their societies.
