Conservative MPs and Peers support Iran Uprising;

Stress that the prospect of change in Iran has never been this accessible urging the UK Government to recognise the right of the Iranian people to defend themselves by any means necessary and to overthrow this regime.

30 Conservative MPs and Peers at the Party Conference in Birmingham backed a statement by the British Committee for Iran Freedom supporting the Iran uprising.

The British Committee for Iran Freedom strongly condemns the death in custody of the young Iranian woman Mahsa Amini.

We extend our condolences to her family and stand in solidarity with the Iranian people.

The British Committee for Iran Freedom is deeply saddened by the passing of Her Majesty the Queen.

As the Speaker of the House of Commons said: “For all of us, the Queen has been a constant presence in our lives – as familiar as a member of the family, yet one who has exercised a calm and steadying influence over our country.”

The British Committee for Iran Freedom welcomes the verdict of the Swedish District Court on 14 July, which led to the sentencing of a former official of the Iranian regime, Hamid Noury, to life imprisonment for involvement in the massacre of thousands of political prisoners in 1988 in Iran.
