Iran: The indiscriminate executions continue – The UN, EU and the International community must put the situation of the death penalty at the top of the agenda in their dialogue with Iran

While the political climate between Iran and the international community has been improving since the election of President Rouhani, and the P5+1 Group is preparing their second round of nuclear negotiations with Iran, executions continue at a higher rate than before inside the country.

Forty-five executions in Iran have been confirmed since Saturday, October 26. We condemn this wave of lawlessness in the strongest possible terms.

Six executions took place this morning, November 4, according to reports from Iran: Shirkoo Moarefi, a Kurdish political prisoner, was hanged in the prison of Saghez (west of Iran), and five prisoners charged with murder were executed in the prison of Kermanshah. Following the execution of 18 prisoners on Saturday, October 26, among them two Kurdish political prisoners and 16 Baluchi prisoners executed in retaliation for an armed attack by insurgents the day before, another Baluchi prisoner was hanged on Monday, October 28, convicted of membership in a Baluchi militant group, and one prisoner was executed on Tuesday, October 29, convicted of drug-related charges.

Referring to the retaliatory execution of the 16 Baluchi prisoners, Florence Bellivier, President of the World Coalition Against the Death Penalty, stated, “The death penalty in Iran is often carried out in violation of international law; in this case none of the safeguards provided not only by international law but also by internal regulations were respected”.

Reports from Iran had indicated that at least 12 Kurdish prisoners might be in imminent danger of execution. Iran Human Rights (IHR) warned about the imminent danger of execution for four Sunni Kurd prisoners sentenced to death, convicted of the assassination of a Sunni Cleric. Those prisoners were in detention when the assassination took place. Amnesty International has also warned of the danger of execution for the two Kurdish political prisoners Zanyar and Loghman Moradi, reportedly tortured into “confessing” to the 2009 murder of the son of a senior cleric in Marivan, Kurdistan Province, and participating in armed activities with a Kurdish opposition group. Additionally, four Ahwazi Arab death row prisoners have been transferred to an unknown location and could be executed at any time.

Since the election of the new Iranian President Hasan Rouhani in June, at least 278 prisoners have been executed in Iran. Of those, 166 including one juvenile offender convicted of a murder committed at 14 years of age, have been announced by official sources. This is a higher monthly average number of executions than in recent years. In the same period, the diplomatic ties between Iran and the international community have improved and EU and the P5+1 Group have resumed their dialogue with Iran.

“It is a paradox that the relations between Iran and the international community improve at the same time as the number of the executions in Iran increases. Notably, many of the death row prisoners are subjected to torture, forced confessions and unfair trials,” said Mahmood Amiry-Moghaddam, the spokesperson of Iran Human Rights. “Demanding a halt to the executions and due process of law must be on top of the agenda in the dialogue between the international community and Iran”.

The World Coalition Against the Death Penalty, an alliance of more than 150 NGOs, bar associations, local authorities and unions, was created in Rome on 13 May 2002. The aim of the World Coalition is to strengthen the international dimension of the fight against the death penalty. Its ultimate objective is to obtain the universal abolition of the death penalty.

Urgent : Four Ahwazi Arabs in fear of imminent execution

 

To :
– The UN Human Rights Council
– The UN Special Rapporteur on Human Rights in Iran Dr Ahmad Shahid
– The Amnesty International
– Human Rights Watch
– Reporters without Borders
– The Arab Human Rights Organisations
– The Iranian Human Rights Organisation
– International Organisations on human rights
The Iranian Intelligence Services have transferred four Ahwazi Arab activists from Karoun prison to unknown place on 3 November 2013.  Ghazi Abbasi, 31, Abdul Reza Amir Khanafareh, 26, Abdul Amir Majdami, 33, and Jasem Moghadam, 28, from Falahiya (Shadegan) previously were sentenced to death by Jude Ali Farhadvand, in branch one of the Ahwaz Revolutionary Court. They were charged with “Mohareb” (enemy with God) and corruption on earth.
They were allowed to be seen by their families prior their transfer that might be last time prior the execution.
Ahwazi Arab activists faced severe physical torture and. The prisoners sent letter from Karoun prison and made their appeal to the international human right organisations:
“After three years imprisonment we were appeared to unfair trail which lasted two hours and half in 2012 and were not allowed to defend ourselves and were charged with armed actions and “Mohareb” and Mofssd-fe-arz (corruption) and sentenced to death. Despite that 6 of Lawyers were attended there but were not allowed to defend from us. The weapon expert made his statement and said detainees never fired gun towards office or any governmental authority. However the Intelligence Service influenced the Court to change the experts and other experts were brought into the court and made their statement. The false statement said that Ahwaz Arab detainees fired gun on the Revolutionary Guards and Basij and other authorities.
The Islamic Republic was condemned by the international organisations such Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, the European and the British Parliaments, the German Foreign  Affairs, the British Foreign Affairs, and the US due to conviction of Ahwazi Arab activists, but the regime continuous the arbitrary arrests and execution of cultural activists in Ahwaz without fair trails.
The Ahwaz Human Rights Organisation (AHRO) condemns the death sentence of innocent cultural activists and calls the Islamic Republic to halt the execution and release other detainees without conditions. AHRO also calls the Islamic Republic to stop suppression and discrimination of Arabs in Alahwaz.

Iran Roundtable: “Iran must implement Special Rapporteur’s recommendations”

 

The report of the Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Islamic Republic of Iran, Ahmed Shaheed, was presented to the UN General Assembly in October 22, 2013.
The report as the Special Rapporteur highlighted “does not detail all of the violations of human rights in the country reported to the Special Rapporteur, but does provide an overview of the prevailing human rights situation.”
Despite being barred from visiting Iran to investigate first hand conditions of prisons, prisoners and victims of human rights violations, the Special Rapporteur has documented a wide range of violations on freedom of expression and association, administration/misadministration of justice, women and children’s rights, freedom of religion and nationalities rights.
In regards to the systematic violations of the basic human rights of persons belonging to ethnic, linguistic or other minorities, including Arabs, Azeris, Baluchis and Kurds and their advocates, the Special Rapporteur recalls the General Assembly’s past concerns that called upon the IRI Government to eliminate all forms of discrimination and other human rights violations against those persons in law and in practice. Despite the Government of IRI’s assertion on its commitment to guaranteeing those rights in its second periodic report to the Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, submitted in May 2011, nevertheless, the Committee communicated its concern about the impact of State-sanctioned discrimination against minorities on the full enjoyment of a range of economic, social and cultural rights and made several recommendations in that regard.
“The Committee also raised concerns about the extreme poverty and inadequate living standards facing ethnic minorities and urged the Islamic Republic of Iran to take immediate steps to improve access to safe drinking water, adequate sanitation, electricity, transportation facilities, schools and health-care centres in regions traditionally inhabited by ethnic minorities.” the report further added.
The Special Rapporteur has also included in his report a section on landmines, a hidden enemy that haunts the lives of many, especially children in the bordering provinces of West Azarbijan, Kurdistan, Kirmanshah, Iram and Khuzestan (Al-Ahwaz).  According to 2012 report by the head IRI mining centre, 20 million mines and explosives had been buried across approximately 42,000 km along the border of those 5 provinces during the Iran-Iraq war.
According to the Special Rapporteur’s report, In April 2013, a member of the National Security and Foreign Policy Commission of the IRI’s Majlis criticized celebrations for the conclusion of the demining process in Kermanshah Province, stating that “human casualties still occurred because of the lack of demining, and that the interior and defence ministers still had a responsibility to demine the contaminated areas and to protect people’s lives from the dangers caused by the detonators remaining from the war.  As recently as this month, 8 school children fell victim to this hidden enemy in the city of Mariwan.  The IRI Revolutionary Guards units blamed the Kurdish opposition groups.”
Part of Dr. Shaheed’s report on the horrendous human rights conditions in Iran is the effects of sanctions on the economic rights of ordinary Iranians.  While IRI officials claim that sanctions have had little or no effect on the country, and in contrary, have made Iran self-sufficient on many fronts, the Special Rapparteur’s report paints a different picture:
  • Gross domestic product reportedly contracted by an estimated 3 per cent in 2012 and is predicted to further contract by approximately 1.2 per cent in the coming year. Staggering inflation, estimated to have peaked at 30 per cent in 2012/13 and forecast to hover above 20 per cent for the next three years, has had a dramatic effect on the standard of living. Furthermore, Government cuts made in December 2010 to subsidies for social welfare programmes, which contribute to low prices of imported foodstuffs and medications, have reportedly contributed to raising the costs of basic commodities, such as cooking oil, fruit, vegetables, meat and nuts.
  • They also stress that the supply of advanced medicines, which treat the most serious illnesses, are particularly affected. In this regard, a number of reports indicate that shortages of drugs for the treatment of such diseases as cancer, heart disease, thalassemia, HIV/AIDS, haemophilia and multiple sclerosis, as well as shortages in the materials necessary to repair and maintain medical equipment, are having a profoundly worrisome impact on access to life-saving medical measures in the country.  According to the report, a former Iranian Health Minister is reported to have maintained that of the $2.5 billion earmarked for foreign exchange necessary to meet the import needs of the medical sector in 2012, only $650 million was provided, intimating that the funds were misallocated.
  • In its response to the request of the Special Rapporteur for its observations on the impact of sanctions on human rights in the Islamic Republic of Iran, the United Nations Children’s Fund office in the country highlighted much of the aforementioned concerns and pointed to local newspaper reports that mention the increasing number of homeless working children and elderly persons and the rise in the phenomenon of “street women”.

Iran Roundtable, while alarmed by the deplorable human rights and dire economic conditions in Iran under the IRI, welcomes the report of the Special Rapporteur, Dr. Ahmed Shaheed, and hopes that the authorities in IRI take the issue of human rights in Iran serious and act upon the recommendations made by the Special Rapporteur in his report.

Iran Roundtable also calls upon the IRI authorities to reconsider their longstanding defiance with the international community by reversing their harmful and unnecessary disputed nuclear program.  This approach will not only relieve Iranians from the dreadful effects of sanctions, as well illustrated in the Special Rapporteur’s report, but also, if coupled with improved human rights conditions and freedom for all Iranians inside the country will, no doubt, make Iran an effective, strong and responsible member of the international community.

The Special Rapportuer’s October 2013 press conference at the UNGA

Press conference by Mr. Ahmed Shaheed, Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Iran

24 October 2013

Dr. Shaheed talks to the UN press core about his report on the situation of human rights in Iran

 

Good morning ladies and gentlemen,

Yesterday, I presented my latest report to the Third Committee on the situation of human rights in the Islamic Republic of Iran, and I took that opportunity to make three points.

The first was that the welcomed positive signals and statements forwarded by President Rohani
raise expectations for tangible and sustainable reforms.

The second point was that these reforms must produce concrete and demonstratable changes in the country’s human rights situation as raised by the General Assembly and the UN human rights mechnisms. To this effect, actions considered by the new government should work to address issues in the legal system as a whole, and in problematic long-term official practices that undermine basic rights like the freedoms of expression, association, assembly and religion, freedom from arbitrary detention, the right to fair trial, and the right to life.

Such laws include the country’s 1986 Press Law, the Computer Crimes law, and aspects of the Islamic Penal Code that allow for the application of the death penalty for crimes that do not meet “most serious” standards, like drug-related offenses. It also includes the retention of cruel and inhuman punishments, such as stoning and amputation, and the retention of broad and poorly defined national security laws. I also highlighted the problematic Custodianship Law that would allow a man to marry his adopted or foster daughter, who can be as young as 13 years old. Such a law undermines the Government’s responsibility to ensure that the best interests of the child be the primary consideration of actions undertaken by public or private institutions in its jurisdiction.

I also took the opportunity to welcome the recent release and furlough of more than a dozen prisoners of conscience, including prominent human rights activist and lawyer, Nasrin Sotoudeh, as well as human rights activists, Mahboubeh Karami, Jila Karamzadeh-Makvandi, and Majid Tavakoli; all of whom I hope will permanently remain with their families, without condition. I further urged the Government to consider additional steps to ensure the unconditional release of hundreds of other human rights defenders that remain in detention.

My third point was that the role of my mandate is to assess, encourage and assist Iran with efforts to improve its human rights situation and compliance with its international obligations. The establishment of a constuctive and cooperative relationship that serves to identify areas of neccessary improvement, and to highlight positive efforts and tangible outcomes as the Goverment works to advance the solutions proposed by President Rouhani is my goal. To date, Government representatives have taken some steps to engage with me and to build confidences about the possibility of such a relationship, and I look forward to working towards this goal in the coming months.

It is undeniable that respect for human rights and dignity results in individual, national, and global security. A legal system that constitutes comprehensive and equal protections for the rights promulgated by the international human rights treaties is one that possesses the prerequisites for enduring stability and security for its people and its neighbors. Therefore, human rights considerations must be central to the new government’s legislative and policy agenda, and to international dialogue and cooperation.

Iran has itself accepted the necessity of a number of key reforms during its Universal Periodic Review and during its reviews by the UN Treaty Bodies. It is now vitally important for the future welfare of the Iranian people that the new government sets-forth to advance a bold policy programme designed to realize these public commitments and legal obligations.

As I made clear at the outset, if the government chooses to take this path, if it expresses its determination to strengthen the promotion and protection of human rights for all Iranians, it will find in me and, I am sure, in the human rights mechanisms willing and determined partners of that path.

Iran one month from a nuke…and we’re negotiating

 

705px-Operation_Upshot-Knothole_-_Badger_001

It was George Santayana who said, “those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.” It was Japan who had sent a delegation to Washington DC for talks as Admiral Yamamoto’s naval armada steamed towards Pearl Harbor. So history repeats itself as the US has begun negotiations with Iran. Yet according to nuclear experts at the Institute for Science and International Security, Iran could be just one month away from having enough weapons-grade uranium for a nuclear device.

Just last week we remembered the 30th anniversary of the Beirut bombing that left some 250 Marines, Sailors, and Soldiers dead. The country behind that attack was Iran and what was to become their proxy Army, Hezbollah. As a matter of fact, the “reformist” president of Iran, Hassan Rouhani, named as Defense Minister Hossein Dehghani, who was responsible for that heinous truck bomb terrorist attack.

Don’t forget it was the weakness of another Democrat President — Jimmy Carter –that gave us the radical Islamic totalitarian regime of Iran in the first place.

According to foreign relations policy in the Obama administration, we spy on our allies while embracing our enemies, Iran and the Muslim Brotherhood. The only way to negotiate with Iran is from a position of strength, probably from about 30,000 feet going at mach speed.

Ahwazi Arabs lead the campaign to Save Karoun River

 

AHRO’s Karim Abdian meets

UN Special Rapporteur Catarina de Albuquerque in Geneva

Ahwazi Arabs are stepping up the campaign to Save the Karoun River, calling on the intervention of the United Nations Special Rapporteur for Safe Drinking Water and Sanitation Catarina de Albuquerque.

Dr Karim Abdian, director of the Ahwaz Human Rights Organisation (AHRO), first raised the issue of the Karoun’s diversion  at the United Nations Sub-Commission on the Promotion and Protection of Human Rights in May-June 2005, warning of the consequences of dams along the Karkhe and Karoun rivers on the indigenous Ahwazi Arab inhabitants.

Last year, he met with UN Special Rapporteur Catarina de Albuquerque and provided details of the impact of the dam programme, which caused the forced displacement of thousands of Ahwazi Arabs and destroyed their farms and fisheries.

Ahwazi groups are calling on Special Rapporteur de Albuquerque to support the voice of the many hundreds of Ahwaz residents who are now demonstrating regularly along the river banks.

The destruction of the Karoun has brought together environmentalists, Ahwazi rights activists, scientists and others in opposition to the Iranian regime’s pillage of natural resources in the Al-Ahwaz region.

October 2013 report of the Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Islamic Republic of Iran

The report of the Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Islamic Republic of Iran, Ahmed Shaheed, submitted in accordance with Human Rights Council resolution22/23, in which the Council extended the mandate of the Special Rapporteur for the second time. Presented to the UN General Assembly in October 2013.

The present report does not detail all of the violations of human rights in the country reported to the Special Rapporteur, but does provide an overview of the prevailing human rights situation, with a focus on systemic issues that pose obstacles to the ability of the Islamic Republic of Iran to comply with its international human rights obligations.

غلامرضا قانعی پور عامل سپاه قدس در ترکیه

ستاد مرکزی سپاه آنلاین در کشور ترکیه به شواهدی در مورد عاملین سپاه قدس برای به دام انداختن پناهجویان و فراریان از جمهوری اسلامی در این کشور دست یافت . یکی از شکنجه گران سپاه که در درگیری های سپاه با اعراب خوزستان و گرفتن زمین های آنها نقش ماثری را ایفا کرده است .

فردی به نام علامرضا قانعی پور صالحی عضو سپاه گلف اهواز در استان خوزستان که از یک سال و نیم  به عنوان مامور وزارت اطلاعات خود را شناسانده اما در اصل او فردی است از سپاه قدس که برای سلسله عملیاتی وارد این کشور شده است  و تحت عنوان پناهجو در ابتدا به سفارت های گوناگون کشورهای مختلف از جمله کنسولگری آمریکا در کشور ترکیه در شهر استامبول رفته و ادعاهای کذب زیادی را مطرح کرده که این سفارت در همان ابتدا با دانستن دروغ بودن این داده ها از سوی او ارتباط را با این فرد قطع کرده ؛ و این شخص بارهای بار به این سفارت مراجعه کرده ولی جوابی دریافت نکرد ،در نهایت خود را به کمیسریای عالی پناهندگان سازمان ملل رساند و تحت عنوان پناهجو در ترکیه ماند

که ویزای او تمام نشود و بتواند به راحتی در این کشور بماند ،در ادامه کار  بر این شد که اطلاعات کذب خود را به سایتهای خبری غربی بفروشد که در ابتدا موفق شده که مبلغ بالایی را از این سایت ها دریافت کند اما همچون سفارت آمریکا این سایت ها و افرادی که از او اطلاعات می خریدند هم به عمق فاجعه پی بردند و سریعا از این فرد فاصله گرفتند . 

این فرد در فاز اول حرکت خود شکست خورده بود و در پی محقق شدن اهداف خود در  فاز دوم عملیات خود یعنی ارتباط با افرادی در اپوزسیون و جدا شدگانی از نظام جمهوری اسلامی بود . در میان جدا شدگان از نظام با خود من یعنی شاهین ترکمان ارتباطی برقرار کرد که در این ارتباط من به دلیل عدم شناخت از این فرد به او مقداری کمک مالی کردم که البته به خاطر همسر این فرد که در شرایط بیماری بود که بعد از ان متوجه شدم که اولا اینها ازدواج نکرده اند و ثانیا آن بیماری ساختگی بوده و از این طریق خودشان را برای کسانی که می خواستند ارتباطی را آغاز کنند ، درمانده نشان می دادند در حالی که خانه هایی را که در استامبول برای زندگی اجاره می کنند هر روز 80 دلار هزینه دارد و با تحقیق ما مشخص شده که این فرد هر هفته 1500 دلار از ایران دریافت می کند . در ادامه کارهایشان با برخی از افراد نا اگاه در اپوزسیون با نامهای آقایان امیر ایرایی و آرین خوشبنیانی ارتباط گرفتند که از هر کدام از این افراد هم مبالغی دریافت کرده اند و جالب مساله این است که تمام این افراد بدون شناخت دقیق از این فرد به راحتی با او همکاری داشته اند ، بعنی با شخصی از سپاه قدس ایران که برای انجام عملیات های مختلف وارد کشور ترکیه شده اند .(این بخش تکمیل می شود افراد زیادی که الان در حال رایزنی با آنها هستیم به زودی معرفی خواهند شد ).

در فاز سوم عملیات خود به کلاهبرداری از پناهجویان ایرانی تحت عناوین مختلف و زنان و دختران تنها در این کشور روی آورده و تاکنون ادامه دارد .بسیاری از مال باختگان زنان و کودکانی و دختران جوانی هستند که برای خروج از ترکیه به راههای غیر قانونی روی آورده اند و به چنگال این فرد افتاده و تمام پولشان را این فرد در شهر استامبول تحت عنوان اینکه میتواند آنها را به صورت غیر قانونی از این کشور خارج کند دریافت کرده وبرخی از انها را به خانه های فساد کشانده و برخی از آنها از دستش گریخته اند . تعدادی از آنها هم اکنون در پی شکایت از این فرد هستند و روال قانونی شکایت از این فرد را طی کرده اند و در پی بازپس گیری این مبالغ هستند .(اسامی و روند دادرسی به شما عزیزان اطلاع داده خواهد شد )

فاز چهارم عملیات این فرد قاچاق مواد مخدر از طریق نیروهای سپاه قدس به این کشور است که از طریق فردی با نام صادق مرزوکیان انجام می شود که به تازگی وارد کشور ترکیه شده است و به ظاهر نقش برادر همسر او را بازی کرده و به زودی ویزای قانونی او تمام شده و قرار است همچنان به صورت غیر قانونی در کشور ترکیه بماند و به کارخویش ادامه دهد

مونا مرزوکیان به ظاهر همسر او _البته همسر دوم که ازدواج آنها در ابهام است_مسئول بخش اغفال مردان ایرانی در تیم کوچک آنهاست فردی که به زبان عربی مسلط است و در شاخه دزدی های مالی انها از پناهجویان عرب زبان از کشور های مختلف فعال است و هر دو این افراد خود را مجرد عنوان کرده اند و به راحتی حتی در صفحه های اجتماعی

آنها به مانند فیس بوک این مساله مشخص است

.

رضا قانعی پور سعی بر اغفال سیستم های اطلاعاتی حاشیه خلیج فارس داشته که این دستگاهها هم به او اعتماد نکرده و نفوذی بودن این فرد برایشان نمایان بوده و در  همان ابتدا این فرد را طرد کرده اند و این ارتباطات از طریق مونا مرزوکیان و تماس های با اداره های پلیس برخی از کشور های حاشیه خلیج فارس بود ه و گزارش غلط از عملیات های تروریستی دادن به این ادارت امنیت شهری که مشخصا هیچ کدام از آن موارد صحت نداشته است .

وبلاگ های این فرد تحت عناوین مختلف از فروش دختران ایرانی گرفته تا گرفتن ویزای آمریکا برای متقاضیان در دسترس است در موتورهای جستجوگر به مانند گوگل و ……

ما از تمامی افراد چه در اپوزسیون چه افراد عادی که مالباخته این فرد ، همسرش  مونا مرزوکیان. برادر همسرش صادق مرزوکیان در ابتدا می خواهیم که از این فرد فاصله گرفته و از دسته دوم می خواهیم که خیلی سریع با ما تماس گرفته تا ترتیبی دهیم که با افراد مالباخته به روند دادرسی دعوت شوند .

 گزارش دوم را به زودی منتشر خواهیم کرد

Ahwazis unite against Iran’s dam project

 

The drying of the River Karoun is becoming a rallying point for Ahwazi Arabs, who have accused the Iranian regime of presiding over an ecological disaster on a par with the destruction of the Amazon.

Environmental campaigners in Ahwaz City formed a human chain along the Karoun this week in protest at the river diversion project. The mega-project involves the construction of dams and tunnels to divert water away from Iran’s largest river which flows through the city and is essential for farming, drinking water and the local ecology.

Controversy surrounds the Koohrang-3 tunnel, which is currently under construction and is set to transfer 255 million cubic metres of water per annum to Zayandeh Rood in Isfahan. The diverted waters will be used for agro-industrial projects, instead of irrigating traditional Arab lands where food staples are grown, such as rice and wheat. Already, three tunnels transfer around 1.1 billion cubic metres of water from the Karoun and its tributaries to Isfahan every year.

 
Currently, there are seven dams and tunnels diverting Karoun’s water with a further 19 dams under construction as well as 12 dams on Karkheh river basin and five dams on Jarrahi river basin. Twelve of these dams have built in Lorestan province in the Karoun and Karkheh basins, which store 800 million cubic metres for local use. Two dams have built in Ilam province on Karkheh river basin with annual storage capacity 1.04 billion cubic metres. Three dams have been built in Kohgiluyeh and Boyer-Ahmad province on Jarrahi River with annual capacity of 1.24 billion cubic metres. So far, 25 dams with total capacity of 10.44 billion cubic metres have into operation in the Karoun basin. These dams are located in Chahar Mahaal and Bakhtiari province, Lorestan province and the north part of Al-Ahwaz (Khuzestan).
 
Due to the dam projects, around half the Karoun’s water flow is now waste water. This will reach 90 per cent when Iran’s dam building project is completed, according to Iranian scientists. The Karkheh and Jarrahi tributaries are now almost dried up and Ahwazi activists fear the Karoun – Iran’s only navigable river – will now dry up. Already, the region’s marshlands on which many Ahwazi Arabs traditionally depend for their livelihoods are a fraction of their former size due to the dam projects. 
 
One of the groups campaigning against the destruction of the Karoun, the Patriotic Arab Democratic Movement in Ahwaz (PADMAZ), has claimed that as a result of the dam projects “the Ahwazi environment will be destroyed and Ahwazi Arab will be forced to move to other cities in addition to contracting intestinal and renal diseases and different kinds of cancer… This will speed up the Iranian colonial plan of ethnic cleansing of Ahwazi Arabs.”
