Dear European citizens, I need to bring your attention to human right issues that really matter. First, it is important to know that after the nuclear deal with Iran, in 2016, EU imports from Iran increased by 344,8% and EU exports increased by 27,8% (http://ec.europa.eu/trade/policy/countries-and-regions/countries/iran/ Iran is a corrupt dictatorship which has been suppressing its people for many decades in every possible way. The youth unemployment is 26%, considerable number of people live in poverty and child labour is a common practice. All media belongs to the government and lawyers and journalists who stand up for people end up in prison. Women's right is a joke and the rape victims are considered guilty. Death sentence is a common sentence which is also given to children under 18. People have suffered enough and now thousands of them have gathered in the streets of numerous cities to ask for their civilian rights. Even though the law (principle 27) permits demonstrations without carrying weapons, the government has opened fire on its own people and by the seventh day of opposition in the streets 21(including a 13-year old) are dead and thousands are arrested.
If you believe in freedom, equality, and human rights you can agree that such government should not receive the commercial benefit of trading with EU companies to empower itself for slaughtering innocent people. Aren't those companies ran by your fellow citizens who believe in the same values as you do?
