EventsA 16-day international exhibition of human rights entitled "Humanity, 2005" in the historic city of Valmantone, Italy, devoted its ninth day to the human rights situation in Iran.
A delegation of the Iranian resistance comprised of Ms. Sarvenaz Chitsaz, chairwoman of the women’s committee of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, Mr. Mohammad Reza Rowhani, chairman of the NCRI Ethnic Minorities committee and Mr. Reza Olia, renowned artist and member of the NCRI,
attended the meeting. The Iranian resistance’s delegation described the devastating Human Rights’ situation in Iran under the mullahs’ rule.
The exhibition was co-sponsored by Mr. Aldo Foorbiche, an Italian scholar and social personality, Medicine San Frontier, Amnesty International-Italy branch, Italy’s refugee council, UNICEF and a number of other human rights organizations and NGOs in Italy.
The Iranian resistance’s president-elect, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, sent a video-taped message to the exhibition pointing out the horrendous record of suppression in Iran. She said, “Considering this dreadful record, one cannot categorize the Iranian regime as a violator of human rights, but as a regime that denies human rights.”
She said: "The problem with Iran’s ruling fundamentalism is not just its violation or non-commitment to humanitarian standards, but the fact that the Iran’s mullahs have no respect for human rights and are engaged in annihilating it."
A monument symbolizing members of the Iranian Resistance slain by the Iranian regime was also on display from the first day of the exhibition, featuring pictures of thousands of the victims. Posters and pictures of executions, torture, and the massacre of political prisoners and suppression of PMOI families were put on display in "Iran’s human rights exhibition."
