    A glance at the abysmal human rights situation in Iran 


    By Masoud Dalvand

    Iran’s Human Rights Monitor has issued a comprehensive annual report of the shameful human rights situation under the rule of criminal mullahs. Referring to the report of Ms. Jahangir, the United Nations Special Rapporteur on Human Rights in Iran, explains about the lack of an independent judiciary in Iran and numerous violations of the basic rights of the Iranian people and the suppression and increase of oppression in Iran.

    In this report, the latest criminality of the Iranian regime can be seen in the deliberate neglect of the state of the earthquake in the west of the country.

    Also, with regard to the right to life for humans, the increasing number of executions and arbitrary murders in Iran has been addressed.

    The report provides good information on the situation of Iranian prisons and prisoners in general, in particular political prisoners and women imprisoned, and the intensification of suppression and the very inhuman situation of detainees.

    Another part of the report describes the retaliation against human rights activists in Iran by the mullahs regime.

    Non-human punishments and punishments, such as flogging in public and amputations, are another part of this comprehensive report.


    Violations of freedom of expression, the press, religious minorities and ethnic minorities are another part of this annual report.



    The violation of the economic, social and cultural rights of the Iranian people, such as workers and child laborers, has been described by the Iranian regime in this report.

    American thinker, July 10, 2017 — Iran is currently one of the youngest countries in the world. Seventy percent of the current population of 80,957,894 are under 35.
    Children in Iran suffer from poverty, where government affiliated elites steel millions of dollars
    Despite having rich oil and gas fields, culture, and civilization, the youth and especially children in Iran are still deprived of basic human rights.
    Instead of going to schools, children in Iran have fallen victims to injustice
    An Iranian child has to grow fast to learn the harshness of the life of poverty
    Today in Iran, the common belief is that child labor is ‘normal.’ Parents regard their children as additional sources of income. Some families attempt to combine school attendance with excessively long and heavy work.
    These are the hands of Iranian children that have fallen victims to injustice
    This sweet little girl is force to sell cigarrets and match boxes for living
    At a very early age, children often separate from their families to earn a few cents per hour and are consequently exposed to serious hazards and illnesses. You may find them on the streets of large cities like Tehran, Esfahan, and Tabriz in large numbers. They simply do not have enough time to go to school and improve their future prospects.
    Recently, Iranian media published reports on seven million child laborers, as well as a significant number of children abused in the drug trade.
    Instead of going to schools, children in Iran have fallen victims to injustice
    These are the children of injustic
    The state-run ISNA news agency quoted three officials of the Iranian regime on June 2, 2017.
    Sarah Rezaie, a member of the so-called Imam Ali population, reduced the dimension of this social problem by claiming that there are two million working children in Iran, but unofficial statistics show the number of child laborers at seven million.
    Instead of going to schools, children in Iran have fallen victims to injustice
    She announced that these children are between 10 and 15 years old and added: ‘There are some pieces of evidence that show even 5-years-old children and babies are also caught in forced labor.’
    She described the situation of children working in some of the metropolitan areas of Iran as ‘disastrous … and this has become a kind of norm.’
    Instead of going to schools, children in Iran have fallen victims to injustice
    Rezaei pointed to the existence of shops where adolescents, often addicted themselves, sell addictive substances such as nas, pan, glass, and crack, adding that ‘these children are used in other cities of Sistan and Baluchestan province.’
    These children swallow these drugs, and after they crossed the border, they expel them. Many have died in the process.
    Instead of going to schools, children in Iran have fallen victims to injustice
    Sousan Maziarfar speaks of the children who search in garbage dumps for food and said the average age of these children is 12 years. ‘Forty-one percent of these children are illiterate and 37% of them have dropped out of the school in order to work,’ she added.
    Instead of going to schools, children in Iran have fallen victims to injustice
    Maziarfar revealed that many of these children face not only disease, but also having their faces, fingers, and toes chewed and wounded by rats.
    Soraya Azizpanah, a member of the association for the protection of the rights of the children, also quoted the Iranian regime parliament’s research center, which, according to ISNA, indicates that 3.2 million children have dropped out of school to work.
    Help The Poor Iranian Children
    CPWB recovers 11 children, 4 of them were serving as ‘agents’ for local drug dealers.
    In Iran, child victims of exploitation have the right to protection from all forms of ill treatment, abuse, neglect, and violence.
    Every child has the right to live, learn, and play, to be happy, safe, and free.
    Iranian media published reports on seven million child laborers, three million and 200 thousand children dropped out of school
    But under the tyrannical rule of the mullahs, children in Iran are deprived of basic human rights.
    By spending its treasure and time on foreign adventures in Iraq, Syria, Yemen, and Lebanon, the Iranian regime paved the way for the sale and trafficking of children and forced or compulsory labor, including use in war.
    Situation of 100,000s of children in Iran Working 2 support their families to help make ends meet
    In the 1980–1988 war with Iraq, Iran used child soldiers extensively, with estimates of up to 100,000 killed.
    They sent the children into battle with a plastic ‘key to paradise’ around their necks, issued personally by the ayatollah. That’s childhood in the theocracy of the mullahs.
    Hassan Mahmoudi is a human rights advocate, specializing in political and economic issues relating to Iran and the Middle East.

    Iran’s Children: Victims of Early Labor 

    By Heshmat Alavi

    Innocent little lives destroyed due to poverty imposed by the regime ruling Iran

    What is the definition of child labour? These are small #Childrenwho are constantly placed at work and mostly deprived of going to school and enjoying their precious childhood. Child labour is banned in many countries and considered so by many international organisations due to the physical and psychological damages inflicted.

    “The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (commonly abbreviated as the CRC or UNCRC) is a human rights treaty which set out the civil, political, economic, social, health and cultural rights of children,” as described by Wikipedia. This text aims to defend children’s rights and was adopted in 1990 after ten years of negotiations amongst the UN Member States.

    June 12th is commemorated as Child #Labor Day to raise awareness annually on this issue and prevent the spread of this deplorable phenomenon.


    The situation in Iran

    In #iran under the mullahs’ rule, however, there are cases of children being sold or families having no choice but sending them off to work. Poverty imposed by the mullahs’ regime is forcing parents to such measures in order to make ends meet.

    There are no exact statistics of how many labour children can be found in Iran.

    “Around 3 million children are working across the country, according to government organisations. However, investigations carried out by popular organisations indicate over 7 million such childrenspread throughout Iran. Government statistics show around 20,000 such labour children in Tehran alone. In various areas, these children lack any official identification papers and small girls are also seen working as maids.

    Most labour children are forced to accept arranged marriages once they reach the age of 10 to 12, according to Tehran’s City Council Social Committee Chairman.

    Most of these children are deprived of any education as official numbers show at least 30% of these children don’t go to school, 31% are aged between 6 to 11 and 9% are actually below the age of 6. Unbelievably, 60% of these children are their families’ only source of income.

    With each passing day reports show such labour children are involved in a variety of different areas of work. Some are even used to clean the carcases of animals killed for meat. Some are involved in household jobs, others in factories and even carrying heavy loads in provinces bordering neighbouring countries where smugglers are active.

    Contracting firms are known to use Afghan migrants’ children to search trash fields for a variety of goods that may be found for sale.


    Even more numbers

    Research shows 45% of labour children and those living on the streets are suffering from illnesses such as AIDS, hepatitis and others. These children are also known to be suffering from malnutrition, being short in height, low weight, skin illnesses and psychological disorders.

    Many such children work at least 6 hours a day and don’t eat even a single decent meal, providing the grounds for these children to obtain even more illnesses.

    A large number of these children are seen carrying heavy loads and begin suffering from back problems at a very early age. And since they have no access to medical care, such an illness paves the path for even more problems further down the road.

    Despite enduring all this suffering these children only receive one fifth of a normal worker’s salary. However, a long slate of risks continuously threatens their lives. If they suffer any injuries, there is no entity willing to provide any support at all.

    Those children who are obligated to help their families make ends meet, those who do not have proper IDs, find themselves being sold by their families, not knowing where they will end up.

    Iran’s children are suffering from such conditions while year after year the regime provides huge budgets for its vast security, military, political and propaganda machine. For example, 150 trillion tomans (around $42.86 billion) is allocated to state-run TV and radio stations.

    A picture is a thousand words…
