Anglo Iranian Youth Society Press Conference. Downing Street, London, UK. 4th November 2009.

As the Iranian Mollah regime hold its annual anti-US day of protests in Iran, which are met with a new movement of pro-Democracy students angry over the questionable re-election of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to President in June, the Anglo-Iranian Youth Society meet outside Downing Street to hold a press conference.

They call for international pressure on the Iranian Mollah regime and make further calls for the security and safety of the residents of Camp Ashraf in Northern Iraq. The press conference is also attended by those who assemble to remember those who continue to be executed by the Iranian regime for the crime of attending pro democracy protests in Iran since June.

The Mollahs have chosen to place those attending these protests on trial for acting in concert with foreign actors with the intention of undermining national security. The trials more often than not end in the conviction and eventual execution of those involved. As the protests step up, a new spate of executions by hanging is expected in the near future as the current arrestees are processed through the Iranian courts.

A female woman holds up the image of an Iranian pro-Democracy man who was hanged in Iran for attending anti-Mollah protests in Iran after the June election, believed by many to have been fraudulant. After the pro-Democracy protests held in June, the Iranian security forces arrested a large number of those involved, later sentencing them to death by hanging.
