On the occasion of the World Day Against the Death Penalty on Saturday, an international gathering was held in Paris to highlight the surge of executions in Iran and need for urgent action.

MARYAM RAJAVI: OUR PLAN IS AN IRAN WITHOUT THE DEATH PENALTY. The bloodletting mullahs have executed more people this year than they did last year.

While a single execution is enough to arouse everyone's conscience, the shame of world powers is their silence over the situation in Iran especially as they are seeking nuclear talks and agreement, and trade deals. Such commercial calculations over human lives have never been a good investment for anyone.

If Western governments had stood up to the abuse of human rights in Iran, the mullahs could never expand their barbarity to Syria and Iraq. Mrs. Maryam Rajavi is cheered to the podium by supporters of democracy and human rights in Iran.
