If the riots and gasoline station burning in the Islamic Republic of Iran this week was any indication of dissent in the country, this article highlights a second front:
Villepinte, France, Jul. 01 – Tens of thousands of Iranians converged on a Paris exhibition centre on Saturday in support of the main Iranian opposition group, and to denounce EU action against the group.
“Justice, justice, rule of law; EU, EU, shame on you”, chanted protestors at an indoor arena in Villepinte, north of Paris. They were referring to the EU’s decision to impose a ban on the People’s Mojahedin Organisation of Iran (PMOI) despite a ruling last December by the European Court of First Instance annulling the group’s terrorist designation.
Thought for the day; if Europe, Canada and the United States sharply curtailed immigration from Iran, would the outside pressure on Iran increase?
