Cross-party MPs and Peers discussed the continuation of popular protests in Iran, their impact on the future of the country and possible UK policy response to these developments at a conference in the UK Parliament on Wednesday, 22 February.

The conference concluded that the ongoing uprising entering its sixth month despite a violent crackdown and mass arrests by the authorities shows that Iran is on the brink of a new revolution.

Saturday, 11 February, marks the anniversary of the anti-monarchy revolution in Iran in 1979. What millions of Iranians had hoped would be the beginning of a democratic change and progress in their country soon became a nightmare as the mullahs stole the popular democratic revolution by usurping power and imposing a religious dictatorship on the people.

Conservative parliamentarians today discussed the current situation in Iran and its democratic future at a conference in Parliament with members of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) and the Anglo-Iranian community.

The British Committee for Iran Freedom strongly condemns the executions of two detained protesters Mohammad Mehdi Karami (22) and Seyed Mohammad Hosseini (39).

We call on the British government to unequivocally condemn this act of barbarism by the Iranian regime and to take immediate and concrete measures to hold the dictatorship in Iran to account for its crimes. Two other protesters had been hanged on December 8 and 12, 2022, respectively.
