IHRDC Urges Canada’s Parliament to Recognize the 1988 Iranian Regime Prison Massacre as a Crime against Humanity

(June 3, 2013) – The Iran Human Rights Documentation Center (IHRDC) calls on the Canadian Parliament to adopt a unanimous consent motion, expected to be presented on June 5, 2013, recognizing the massacre of political prisoners by the Islamic Republic of Iran (IRI) in the summer of 1988 as constituting crimes against humanity. The motion before the Canadian Parliament has been proposed by the Massacre88 campaign—a group of Iranian-Canadian human rights activists seeking justice and accountability for the atrocities committed by the Iranian authorities in 1988.
