Canada-based activist Hamed Esmaeilion has called for unity among all the groups and peoples protesting against the Islamic Republic, noting that all Iranians face a common enemy.

Esmaeilion, who lost his daughter and wife in the shooting down of a Ukrainian passenger plane in January 2020 by the Revolutionary Guard, said in a statement on Thursday that “When all ethnic groups stand together in front of a common enemy, Iran is the main issue.”

Urging all Iranians to participate in the worldwide protest rallies scheduled for October 29, he said that “Don’t forget that the Islamic Republic is the main killer, assassin and oppressor.”

Tens of thousands of Iranians, estimated to be over 100,000 people, took to the streets in the German capital Berlin to support their fellow-countrymen struggling against government brutality.

Protesters carried the pictures of Mahsa Amini, the 22-year-old woman who was killed in the custody of Iran’s ‘morality police’, as well as those who lost their lives in the nationwide protest movement since mid-September. They also unfurled a large Iranian pre-revolution national flag, which has become a symbol of rejecting the Islamic Republic.

Addressing the rally Berlin, Esmaeilion said, “We have a dream which will be realized with the fall of Khamenei’s empire of fear and crime. In this dream, wind will blow through women’s hair, and no one will attack schoolgirls.”
