Yesterday during the weekly protest of the Iranian-Canadians in Ottawa in front of the Parliament Hill and across from prime minister's office the protesters called for the freedom of political prisoner, Narges Mohammadi and Arzhang Davoodi and all other political prisoners in Iran. They also called for the trial of those responsible for the 1988 Massacre of 30,000 political prisoners in Iran. The
Iranian-Canadians then in an act of solidarity joined the demonstration of the Syrian community towards the Russian embassy. They were carrying banners which demanded a halt to massacre of Aleppo residents in Syria.
Mohammadi was arrested last year after joining a campaign to end the death penalty in Iran.
The number of women executed during Rouhani's tenure so far amounts to 71. Hassan Rouhani took office in 2013.
He added: "We have submitted a plan proposing social deprivations and deprivation from services by the Islamic Republic, for clothing abnormalities and unconventional behavior." Tasnim belongs to Quds terrorist forces.
The Daily Telegraph wrote on September 29, that the world's top
female chess players have reacted with horror after being told they must compete at next year's world championship wearing a hijab when competing in Iran.
Within hours of Iran, being revealed as its host country, the prestigious event was plunged into crisis as it emerged players taking part face arrest if they don't cover up.
In response, Grand masters lined up to say they would boycott the 64-player knock-out and accused the game's scandal-hit governing body Fide of failing to stand up for women’s rights.
Fide's Commission for Women's Chess, meanwhile, called on participants to respect “cultural differences” and accept the regulations...
However, players claim by awarding the event to Iran Fide is turning a blind eye to sexual discrimination.
Nazi Paikidze, the US women's champion, also raised concerns about players' safety in the Islamic republic and said: "It is absolutely unacceptable to host one of the most important women's tournaments in a venue where, to this day, women are forced to cover up with a hijab.
"I understand and respect cultural differences. But, failing to comply can lead to imprisonment and women's rights are being severely restricted in general.
"It does not feel safe for women from around the world to play here.” Paikidze added: "I am honored and proud to have qualified to represent the United States in the Women’s World Championship. But, if the situation remains unchanged, I will most certainly not participate in this event…."
Fide is already reeling after its president, the eccentric multi-millionaire Kirsan Ilyumzhinov, was placed on a US sanctions list for alleged business dealings with Syrian president Bashar al-Assad's regime.
