On the occasion of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, the Iranian community in Belgium, staunch supporters of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), gathered in Saint-Jean Square in Brussels. Their banners proudly displayed the tenets of Ms. Maryam Rajavi’s 10-point plan, the President-elect of the NCRI, which advocates for the equal rights of both men and women, emphasizing the crucial role of women in shaping the political leadership of future Iran.
Belgian NCRI supporters highlighted the pivotal role of women in overthrowing the Iranian regime as a crucial step toward establishing a free and democratic Iran—an essential stride in the broader campaign to eliminate violence against women.
This rally also served as a poignant moment to commemorate Milad Zohrevand, an Iranian protester who was tragically executed on November 24th. The event underscored the ongoing struggle for human rights and gender equality in Iran, as the community rallied together in solidarity against violence targeting women.
On the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, I greet all my sisters in #Iran and worldwide who stand up for equality and freedom and an end to violence against women. I also salute all women who have suffered, been tortured, or hanged in this struggle.… pic.twitter.com/r0ZFXzgafp— Maryam Rajavi (@Maryam_Rajavi) November 25, 2023
Amnesty International is horrified by reports of the chilling execution of Milad Zohrevand on 23 November in Hamedan Central prison and calls on the international community to urge Iranian authorities to immediately establish an official moratorium on executions. 1/5 pic.twitter.com/AZeClA1Jf9— Amnesty Iran (@AmnestyIran) November 24, 2023
