In a joint message, prominent opponents of the Islamic Republic have urged the international community to list Iran’s Revolutionary Guard as a terror group.
In a tweet published by exiled Prince Reza Pahlavi, football legend Ali Karimi, British-Iranian actress and human rights activist Nazanin Boniadi, journalist and activist Masih Alinejad, and actress Golshifteh Farahani they said, “our request for the international community is clear: put the IRGC on the terrorist list.”
“For more than four decades, the IRGC has been terrorizing and killing civilians inside and outside Iran,” the five prominent opposition figures said in their joint tweet.
In the meantime, diaspora Iranians in Europe are gathering in Strasbourg, France Monday in front of the European Parliament to call on European Union governments to include the IRGC in the list of terrorist groups.
Videos sent to Iran International show that Iranians opposing the Islamic Republic who live in various European cities are moving towards Strasbourg, the seat of the European Parliament.
Meanwhile, the Association of Families of Flight PS752 Victims, in a statement, supported the demand from the European Union to designate the IRGC as a terrorist organization and declared that this organization is a terrorist one and should be recognized as such by the international community.
On January 8, 2020, the IRGC fired two missiles at a Ukrainian plane taking off from Tehran killing all its 176 passengers and crew.
