ASMLA protestors leading a demonstration against the Iran regime’s oppression of Ahwaz, Asharq Al-AWSAT

Berlin- Freedom activists and supporters for the Ahwaz cause held a mass demonstration against the oppressive Iran regime executions outside the German Parliament in Berlin on Friday. Many multicultural communities joined their call for freedom and human rights.

Yaqoub Hor Al-Tostari wrote that protesters at the demonstration, entitled ‘No to Executions in Ahwaz’, organized by the Arab Struggle Movement for the Liberation of Ahwaz (ASMLA), carried pictures of a few of the Ahwazi activists executed by the regime in recent years, including three resistance fighters from the west of Ahwaz in Hamidieh who were recently killed by the regime.

The demonstrators, including a number of prominent German figures who attended the event to show their solidarity with the Ahwazi people’s long struggle for freedom and dignity, chanted slogans against the Iranian regime and its crimes against the Ahwazi people.

Protesters strongly condemned the Iranian regime’s crimes against the Ahwazi people, saying that these have reached the stage where they should be rightfully classified as crimes against humanity.

Despite the vast natural wealth in Ahwaz which stretches from the Iran-Iraq border to the southwest of Iran, successive Iranian regimes have subjected the Arab people of Ahwaz to brutal apartheid-style racist discrimination and oppression, deliberately maintaining them in conditions of medieval poverty and denying them any share in the wealth from their own lands.
