Emily Thornberry must resign over her Iran comments

This petition had 41 supporters

Emily Thornberry, the Shadow Foreign Secretary has has been condemned after saying Labour cannot support anti-government protesters in Iran because it was unclear who were "the guys with white hats" in the conflict.

To me it’s simple: I’m against gay people like me being hung. I’m against Islamic extremist regime who since 1979 has publicly lynched women who do not cover their heads. Ordinary young working Iranians are rising up against this brutal Islamic dictatorship keeping them in poverty and repression.

What happened to Labour standing up for the oppressed and vulnerable?!

Thornberry - resign now!
