2. Write to Oberlin College
Iran denies it committed these crimes against humanity and has repeatedly dispatched regime insiders like Mohammad Jafar Mahallati – today a tenured professor at Oberlin College – to do the same before the international community. Please write to the President and Board of Trustees of Oberlin College and request the termination of Mahallati:
Board of Trustees:
In 1988, the government of Iran massacred 30,000 political prisoners.
The executions took place based on a fatwa by Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khomeini.
Three-member commissions known as ‘Death Commissions’ were formed across Iran sending political prisoners who refused to abandon their beliefs to execution.
The victims were buried in secret mass graves.
The perpetrators continue to enjoy impunity.
Since 2016, the names of nearly 100 ‘Death Commission’ members have been revealed. Many still hold senior positions in the Iranian judiciary or government. They include the current President and Former Chief Justice of Iran, Ebrahim Raisi.
Ebrahim Raisi, the architect of the massacre of political prisoners must face justice
The souls of the victims’ relatives were massacred simultaneously with their loved ones
The summer of 1988 marked the massacre of some 30,000 political prisoners in Iran, including many young women and girls. Death commissions were the architect of this massacre.
As a member of the Death Commissions, the clerical regime’s new president, Ebrahim Raisi, is one of the main perpetrators of the genocide and the crime against humanity in Iran in 1988. He must be prosecuted and brought to justice.
Ebrahim Raisi, the clerical regime’s new president, was a member of the “Death Commission,” which became the architect of the massacre.
Hence, a leader can be boldly called one of the main founders of genocide and crimes against humanity, whose trial and confrontation with justice is essential.
