Rejected petition Support the demands of Iranian women and men protesting for their human rights!

For weeks now Iranians have been protesting against the Islamic Republic in cities across Iran, demanding an end to religious dictatorship. Here in Britain, despite thousands protesting in London, the UK Government and Opposition remain silent on the uprising in Iran.

More details

Iranian women and men have stood their ground against security forces that have killed dozens of protesters. We call on Britain's third female Prime Minister, Liz Truss, and the Leader of the Opposition, Keir Starmer, and the leaders of all UK parties to express the solidarity of the British people with the legitimate demands of Iranians to enjoy the same rights and freedoms that we enjoy here in Britain.
