Ethnic Cleansing and Infanticide by Iran’s Regime During World Cup 2022

It is no secret the the Kurdish spirit has long been a thorn in the side of the Iranian regime, their own Kurdish regions and Iraq’s have been instrumental in the struggle against the totalitarian regime. Meanwhile Turkey’s dictator Erdogan is irritated by Turkish-Kurdish resistance, and has recently been bombing the Kurdish regions in Turkey and Syria, we have to ask if this is co-ordinated. For the Iranian part, the protests have given the regime clearance to attack, possibly making an example of these remote regions – Mahabad, Javanrood, where internet accessibility can easily be cut off, and services (water for some days now) also. The atrocities are to be internationally condemned and we ask you to please, please write to your MP easily via this link/ or Senator, to bring this urgent matter of life and death, in Parliament/ Senate.
