France: march, display of the Eiffel Tower to support Iranian activists


PARIS – Some 5,000 people marched to the European Parliament in the French city of Strasbourg on Monday in support of Iranian anti-government protesters as Paris prepared a tribute at the Eiffel Tower to Mahsa Amini, whose death in September sparked the protests .

The Strasbourg march was organized by Iranians in Europe on the 44th anniversary of the day the last Shah of Iran, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, ill and under increasing pressure, left the country forever. The following month, the monarchy collapsed under the fervor of the Islamic revolution which gave Iran its theocracy. Some of the protesters carried photos of the former king on Monday.

Last week, more than 100 MEPs signed a letter calling on the European Union to take a tougher stance against Iran.

The plenary session of the European Parliament is due to debate this week the EU’s response to protests and executions in the Islamic Republic. A non-binding resolution is to be voted on Thursday.

The letter from MEPs to Josep Borrell, the EU’s high representative for foreign affairs, called on the bloc to designate the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps “in its entirety as a terrorist organisation”. The IRGC was designated a Foreign Terrorist Organization by the United States in 2019.

Paris City Hall said in a statement that the words “Woman. Life. Freedom.” and “#StopExecutionsInIran” will be displayed on the Eiffel Tower on Monday and Tuesday evening to mark four months after the death of Mahsa Amini, in a “tribute to those who bravely fight for their freedom as the (Iranian) regime pursues executions of protesters. »

Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo and a few deputy mayors are expected to visit the Eiffel Tower on Monday in a show of support. Paris posthumously declared Amani an honorary citizen in October.

Iran has been rocked by protests since the September 16 death of the 22-year-old, who died after being detained by vice police. The protests have since become one of the most serious challenges for Iran’s leadership.
