Why #WeSupportMEK 🌹
#WeSupportMEK because they are the most active, organized, united, efficient, brave, honorable, educated, non-corrupt, honest, sacrificing, 24/7-struggling, Iranian and Iran-loving resistance against the occupying and brutal regime in #Iran. That’s why #IStandWithMaryamRajavi ✌️
#WeSupportMEK because the regime executed +120.000 of our loved ones for speaking up against Islamic fundamentalism and we won’t give up until we receive justice for our victims and for our children. Until we achieve the most basic #HumanRights in our nation. We will resist IRI

2/Agree with @dtbyler about centrality of a #Uyghur voice, “Alim,” impressed w smart protection for him. Esp given his biodata gathered forcibly, detention in a “political education” camp, “release” but still flagged by surveillance technology even when supposedly “free.” @hrw

Before you defend the mullahs in #Iran & stop efforts to hold them accountable--know the struggle of the #Iranian people & their pains and sufferings as described by imprisoned #humanrights activist #GolrokhIraee women.ncr-iran.org/2019/01/06/gol… 1/18
We, who tolerated the pain, the poverty, the fall into the depths of fundamentalism, and over a century of tyranny. We, who were lashed but stood up. We, who lost our people but survived. We, who spread our empty tablecloths but carried on.

By the grave of our pens, we sang the song of freedom & did not relent. Now we're pounding at the trembling pillars of fundamentalism. Until the cracks in the wall of theocracy r widened, we shall stand, even if the hangman’s poisonous dagger pierces in2 our body..

Earlier today I was arrested with 17 other Jews and allies in the Cannon congressional building in Washington, DC, as part of a #NeverAgainIsNow protest against the US government's detention and abuse of immigrants in American-run concentration camps around the country.
As an American Jew, I grew up hearing NEVER AGAIN. Never again can we allow the horrors of the Holocaust. Never again to death camps and forced labor. Never again to ripping children from their parents. Never again to weaponizing abuse, indignity, and dehumanization.
As an American Jew, I also grew up hearing where the world fell short; where humanity failed to live up to that rallying cry of NEVER AGAIN: Cambodia. Bosnia. Rwanda. Darfur. I learned that NEVER AGAIN is both a call to action and a reminder of the cost of inaction.

🚨Pompeo announces new State Dept commission to review the role of #HumanRights and "natural law" in American foreign policy. "Natural law" sets off alarm bells, as its narrow philosophy of rights excludes abortion, same-sex marriage, and much more. washingtonpost.com/world/national…
The State Dept's Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights & Labor (DLR) already reviews countries' #humanrights records. Critics fear Pompeo's new "natural law" commission will undermine DLR, which for more than FOUR DECADES has been responsible for holding abusive govts to account.
Surprise! Pompeo's new "inalienable rights" task force, which aims to "reexamine" how the State Dept defines human rights, includes commissioners who are on record praising human rights abusers. pbs.org/newshour/world… via @AliRogin h/t @joshrogin

Germany’s Department of Protection of the Constitution asserts every year including just a few days ago, that the #Iran ian Embassy is engaged in espionage against their opponents, particularly against PMOI and NCRI. So, why is it that this embassy is not shut down? #FreeIran
The prosecution, punishment and expulsion of the mercenaries of the #Iran ian Intelligence Ministry & the Revolutionary Guard Corps, as well as the EU declaration of April 29, 1997 must be implemented and enforced. #FreeIran

If you're reading this, I have just been arrested with 17 other Jews and allies outside of the ICE Detention Facility in Boston, protesting the US government's detention and dehumanizing abuse of immigrants in concentration camps at the border and around the country.
Growing up Jewish, I heard the message over and over from my elders: NEVER AGAIN. Honestly, I heard it so often, I got a little impatient, as kids sometimes do. I thought: I get it, I get it, you don't have to keep saying it. Obviously the Holocaust should never happen again.
Surely everyone understands this now.

I am heartbroken to have grown to understand what they already knew. We are now a country locking children in cages, forcing grown women to drink from toilets, forcing men to live in cells so cramped they can't lie down to sleep.

Everyone involved in #humanrights needs to read this challenging, provocative article on how the human brain responds to evidence of abuses and atrocities (spoiler alert: rarely with empathy). Some implications below.
openglobalrights.org/brain-research…
1/ If #humanrights orgs only show people inhumanity, it becomes the new norm, the new reference point. Without solutions and alternatives, people will accept that atrocities and abuses are just a natural part of life and turn away.
2/ But it gets worse. Repeated exposure to a certain kind of behaviour (such as abusing another groups human rights) makes it seem like normal behaviour to other people in that group. This is called simulation theory. Human rights reports risk modelling the behaviour they oppose

#Thread Let me tell you why the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe’s decision to re-admit Russia will prove to be an own-goal and why those who voted in favour have made a fatal error of judgement.
Your claims that Russia belongs to the CoE with all the rights & obligations this confers is self-defeating. The hallmark of the Kremlin is that it actively chooses to operate outside the norms of international law, whatever the forum and whatever the rules or rulings.
Remember the aggression against Georgia and Ukraine? 13,000 dead and counting. Vetoing and obstruction of the investigation into #MH17? The #Salisbury attack as well as election meddling around the world? Are memories so short?

There shouldn't had been a trial in the first place as the Crown Prosecution Service said no further action & the case was thrown out. But #LBRUT unlawfully overruled the Crown Prosecution Service decision & brought a case

Friends and supporters of the Iranian Resistance, I salute you who are conveying at this moment the voice of an oppressed nation, a nation who has been subjugated and plundered, but has risen up.

Freedom cannot be achieved unless you have a long line of selfless men and women firmly determined to persevere and resist for achieving freedom without having any personal interests or expecting any rewards for themselves.

Frustrating how @TwitterSupport suspends #Iranian dissidents like #HeshmatAlavi while #IranLobby is enjoying the #FreedomOfSpeech, press & safety in #USA using full name, picture & verified @Twitter accounts.
Obviously their families in #Iran are also safe thanks 2 their lobbying
When @jack Dorsey, @ev-an Williams & @biz Stone founded @Twitter in 2006 it began as a toy for online flirtation but during the #IranElection in 2009 it suddenly turned to a serious platform for #Politics representing #FreedomofExpression & #FreedomOfSpeech in #Iran
#FreeAlavi
People in #Iran used anonymous @twitter accounts to tell the world about what is happening in the streets of #Tehran in real time. This is exactly what #HeshmatAlavi was doing especially during #IranProtests in Dec 2017 until his account was suspended.
#FreeAlavi
