On January 7th 2010, representatives of the PMOI (Peoples Mojahedin Organisation of Iran) gather outside Downing Street in London to hear a range of cross-party MPs and peers call upon the British Government to suspend all ties with the Mollah regime of Iran.
In recent weeks anti-government protests in Iran have increased. As a result, the Mollah regime have denounced the pro-democracy protests as mohareb (fighting against God) with Interior Minister, Mohammad Najar, warning those taking part face execution if they continue.
Last week, members of the Majlis (Parliament) tabled an emergency bill allowing those accused of Mohareb to be executed within five days. The rally speakers include Lord Corbett of Castle Vale, Conservative MP David Amess, Mr Brian Binley Conservative MP, Lord Cotter Liberal Democrat spokesman (House of Lords), Mr Roger Gale former Vice Chairman of the Conservative Party, Lord Maginnis of Drumglass and Labour MP, Mr Joe Benton.
The protests in Iran continue and in recent days China issues official statements in support of the regime. As a direct result, a wave of executions are expected to be announced by Iran in coming weeks as they continue to consolidate their position with the use of violence.
