Iran: 2nd day of Dervish protest rallies in Tehran, mass detentions

Families of Dervish detainees rallied on Sunday morning for the 2nd straight day along with a large number of Dervish community members from across Iran, outside the regime's public prosecutor’s office in Tehran expressing anger over the recent waves of arrests and inhumane conduct against the Dervish detainees.
The regime’s anti-riot guard forces, Ministry of Intelligence plainclothes agents and Bassij members attacked the protesters arresting a large numbers and  transferring many with at least 20 vans to various police stations. It's been reported more than 800 Dervishes have been arrested thus far.

They even took old mothers and various members of the Dervish inmates to another area in order to prevent people from joining their rally.
According to reports received from inside Iran at least 1,000 Dervish community members have to this point been transferred to this area where the regime’s security forces are preventing others from joining their ranks.
The families of the Dervish inmates and other Dervish community members, that slept last night at a religious center where regime forces had transferred them to, were literally besieged this morning by plainclothes agents and anti-riot forces that prevented them from exiting the area.

The regime’s security forces resorting to the severe beating of old Dervish mothers and young women outside the public prosecutor’s office raised immense anger amongst the protesters. This widespread protest rally is being held in support of the Dervish inmates in Evin and Shiraz prisons who have been on hunger strike since August 31st.
The Iranian regime suppressive forces arrested 500 Gonabadi dervishes Saturday morning, September 20. Dervishes planned to gather at 11 AM in front of Tehran’s Prosecutor’s Office in solidarity with the imprisoned dervishes who are on hunger strike. The families of the prisoners who are on strike and a large number of women and children are amongst the arrestees. They are requesting to meet their imprisoned families and relatives who are in critical condition after 21 days of hunger strike. They are saying that if their brothers are to be victimized in prison, they too would want to join them. Their sole crime is that they are Dervish.
After the protest gathering was announced by the dervishes, on Saturday morning, the clerical regime dispatched a large number of IRGC, intelligence, security and anti-riot agents to the street leading the Prosecutor’s Office in
Ark Square (central Tehran). They closed down the street, as well as the exits of Tehran’s Bazaar metro, in an effort to prevent the formation of this gathering. They are preventing protesters from standing and even sitting in front of the Prosecutor’s Office. The families of the dervishes, particularly the women who resisted the coercions by the suppressive forces, were assaulted, insulted and battered.
Those apprehended were taken to 13 various police stations, in
Tehran and Alborz province.
Nine of the imprisoned male dervishes, Hamidreza Moradi Sarvestani, Afshin Karampour, Farshid Yadollahi, Reza Entessari, Amir Eslami, Omid Behrouzi, Mostafa Daneshjou, Mostafa Abdi and Kasra Nouri have staged a hunger strike in the Evin and Shiraz prisons since August 31 to demand complete release of the dervishes’ community from prisons and for the regime to be held accountable for years of violation of dervishes’ rights. The imprisoned dervishes in recent years have been under great pressure by regime’s henchmen. In addition to physical tortures, on numerous occasions they have been transferred to ordinary prisoners’ ward or to solitary confinement and in a humiliating act, their mustache have been shaved off.
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi , President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, expressed deep abhorrence regarding this issue and called on all international bodies and human rights organs, especially the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, to adopt immediate measures to secure the swift and unconditional release of all the arrestees, as well as the imprisoned dervishes, and to look into their demands. She also called for the referral of the dossier of crimes of the
Iranian regime to the United Nations Security Council.
The dervishes who have been arrested in 2 days of rellyis in different police stations in Tehran are said to have gone on hunger Strike as a way of showing their protest.

An Iranian man sentenced to 24 years in jail for creating a terror group and intend to cause harm in Canada
Hiva Mohammad Alizadeh, an Iranian man police called the ringleader of a group accused of plotting attacks in Canada, has pleaded guilty to explosives possession with the intent to cause harm as part of a terrorist conspiracy and received a 24-year sentence as part of an agreement.
CBC Ottawa Television reported on Sept. 17 that Hiva entered the plea in court in Ottawa on Wednesday under a deal agreed to by Crown and defence lawyers.
Alizadeh received a 24-year sentence, minus time served, the sentence means Alizadeh will spend 18 years in a federal prison.
Hiva Alizadeh, one of three men charged with terrorism-related counts after a 2010 RCMP investigation, pleaded guilty Wednesday in Ottawa to explosives possession with intent to cause harm as part of a terrorist conspiracy.
Alizadeh apologized in court, saying that he wanted to be de-radicalized.
Justice Colin McKinnon told Alizadeh in court he was effectively guilty of treason and had betrayed his family and community.
Alizadeh is one of three men arrested and charged in 2010 after an RCMP investigation.
Misbahuddin Ahmed, an Ottawa X-ray technologist, is awaiting sentencing after he was found guilty in July of conspiring to knowingly facilitate a terrorist activity and participating in the activities of a terrorist group.
A third man whose voice was recorded in police surveillance — former London, Ont., pathologist Khurram Sher — was found not guilty in August of planning terrorist activity.
After returning to Canada, Alizadeh sought to start his own group in Ottawa. He met with Ahmed in February 2010 and attempted to radicalize him. In July 2010, the two men also met with Sher and attempted to recruit him.
When police searched Alizadeh's apartment, they found a President's Choice grocery bag containing a partially assembled circuit board for an IED with seven components soldered on, in keeping with instructions in the accompanying terrorist training material.
Police said the device needed only three more components readily available at consumer electronic stores to be functional when combined with explosives, and classified this as an "explosive substance" under the Criminal Code. They later found the bag and its contents in Ahmed's possession.

Seifzade, is a lawyer and a senior member of the Human Rights Activists Center and has been sentenced to six years behind bars for his protests and refusing to take part in the court hearings.

Iraqi forces prevent entry of fuel to Camp Liberty

On Thursday, September 18, the Iraqi forces once again obstructed entry of a fuel tanker and gasoline to the Iranian Camp Liberty residents in Iraq and returned the tanker from the entrance to the airport area. Since two months ago, at the behest of the Iranian regime and following a visit by Ali Shamkhani, Secretary of the regime Supreme Security Council, and Qasem Soleimani, Commander of its terrorist Quds Force, the Iraqi forces have intensified the anti-human siege on Camp Liberty.
Camp Liberty residents need at least two fuel tankers (34000 liters of fuel) per day, but in the past 37 days only 18% of the needed fuel has been allowed into the camp. Camp Liberty is not connected to the national electric grid and all of its vital facilities, such as lighting, cooling systems, refining of water, cooking and discharge of black water completely depend on the electricity produced by camp’s power generators. 
Preventing entry of fuel in the heat of
Iraq is a physical and psychological torture of the residents and part of Iranian regime’s and its Iraqi cohorts’ plan for tormenting them to death. Another part of this plan is the medical siege of Camp Liberty that since 2009 has led to the death of 21 residents. The latest victim was PMOI member (People's Mojahedin Of Iran) Mr. Taghi Abbasian who passed away in the early morning hours of Thursday, September 18.
