  • Second declaration of a group of killed people's families in 80's

Let's hold the remembrance ceremony of murdered people during 30 years killings of Islamic regime in Khavaran cemetery.

Thirty-one years have passed since confiscation of the revolution.The governing Islamic regime in all these thirty-one years and uninterrupted has been doing repression, imprisonment, torture and executions and still is. Anti-revolutionary repression system of regime without any sensitivity to «family» type differences which sometimes have been too noisy , just has continued its anti-revolutionary and anti-democracy path and has been a beyond-faction tool for protecting regime and suppressing opponents.

But in the last 31 years and in two different periods of opponent's killing and torture has showed that this regime is worst than the previous ones in Iran.Once in 80's which with the excuse of war was able to massacre and eradication in a 10 years attack and in its peak point in 1988. massacred and eradicated and the other in the past 2 months : when people after 30 years and by deepening of the gap between government factions were able to bring their cries on the streets and roof-tops and demand for recapturing their revolution.

By passing 30 years of the Islamic government and despite the deepness of faction gaps , the repression system again does what he did to its opponents 30 years ago : repression , prison,torture , rape, execution,confession shows and making judicial case for opponents...but this time because regime aim was more about scaring the opponents , enforcement of brutality and medieval tortures was worst than any other previous fascist regimes.

If news of 80's massacres particularly group killing of prisoners in 1988 heard less in the world and many of "human rights defenders" organizations and " democracy defenders " governments had shot their mouths,this time and because of people loud screams , popular news coverage ,public opinion pressure and developed forces across the world ,there is no power that can ignore the people's cries even some of the Islamic regime elements .But regardless of who are supporting these cries , the modality of these cries are not different from the breaking cries of 80's : all of them are demanding freedom and justice .But despite of all these cries and public opinion pressure , the Islamic regime repression machine is doing the same thing that it did to opponents in 80's .So Islamic regime and its repression machine is standing against all of us , we all are from the same family .Our pains and desires are same and have shouted the same cry.

We families of killed people in 80's during all these years have been in the most difficult situation and know that if this routine continues what has happened to us will happen to the recent killed families as well.
They kidnapped , tortured and executed our loved ones.We didn't know any thing about time of their trial and did not see the people who put our loved ones on trial and did not understand what was their charges.Their testaments were not given to us neither their bodies and were not told about their burial places .After a long time of search we were told that our loved ones have been buried in individual or group graves at Khavaran or similar cemeteries in other cities.

Today opponents are being killed on streets by baton or bullet or being faced in official or non-official prisons by the most brutal tortures and rape and if we are lucky we can take their bodies back.During this period they harass us (families of detainees) like our loved ones.We've been deprived from studying and fired from work places and closed any way on us for any kind of progress and develop.

Our families torn apart and meanwhile some of the family members went mad or had serious disease.Some forced to leave their country and suffer from depression , poverty and disease.
The survivors of recent killings are not allowed to cry for their loved ones or talk about them.They are being threatened and a way to cemetery is being closed to them.The same thing that happened to survivors of 80's killing ,now is happening to them.

Even they closed the way to the graves that they ,themselves had given us their location.There was a time that they closed the gates of Khavaran cemetery .some other time and with an other excuse they plowed the land and planted trees instead of graves.

We were even banned to hold funeral ceremonies in out homes . We and our children were threatened and arrested .They attacked to the ceremonies that we had held in our homes and out families under pressure no to hold nay ceremony at home.And isn't the same thing happening today?

So we-some of the 80's killed families- invite the freedom demanders to gather at Khavarn on Friday August 28th ,9.00 am and in 21st anniversary of prison's massacre and sympathy with survivors of 80's killings and recent event killings .

Our gathering demands are as follows :
  1. The people who caused the 80's killings to put on trial , particularly group executions in 1988 and repression ,killing ,torture and rape in recent events.
  2. Announce the names of 80's buried people at Khavaran cemetery and also names of killed nad arrested people in recent events.
  3. Unconditional release of all political and ideological prisoners
