NCRI – The mullahs in power in Iran are stealing the wealth of the Iranian nation and brutalizing opponents, Irish human rights activist Susan Mathews has said.
Ms. Mathews addressed a Geneva conference on September 18 on the sidelines of the 30th session of the United Nations Human Rights Council.
Iranians plan to rally outside the United Nations in New York on September 28 to denounce the visit by the mullahs' President Hassan Rouhani to the UN General Assembly.
The rally, which is being organized by the Organization of Iranian-American Communities (OIAC), will press the international community to hold the regime in Iran accountable for its abhorrent human rights record.
