Statement on the recent Iran protests September 2022

    The Iranian Canadian Congress is deeply troubled by the situation in Iran and reiterates its solidarity with peaceful protestors demanding their fundamental rights, freedom and justice. We are devastated to hear about instances of violence and police brutality that have claimed tens of lives and left hundreds of people injured. The ICC condemns these acts of violence that threaten the sanctity of life and jeopardize the Iranian people's human rights to peaceful assembly and protest. We strongly condemn targeted harassment and repression against women in Iran. We are also deeply concerned by the state-imposed internet blackouts in Iran - leaving those in Iran unable to communicate with the outside world as well as those in the diaspora unable to connect with their family and loved ones during this difficult time. Thousands of Iranian Canadian community members have joined the solidarity protests across Canada. We echo their calls for freedom, unity, and peace. We stand with our family, friends, and fellow Iranians back home.
