Iranian NGOs Petition in the White House...
In an action by the Iranian civil society, a petition for the termination of all sanctions imposed by the United States of America against Iran was registered in the White House website. The petition reads as follows: Economic sanctions are unjustifiable acts that lead to widespread human rights violations. The United States’ 4 decades of unfair sanctions against ordinary people in Iran have harmed Iranians’ right to life, to self-determination, to development, and children’s right. The so-called recent “smart sanctions” have had significant negative effects on Iranian citizens, including a sharp rise in inflation, a rise in commodities and energy costs, destruction of the banking system, rising unemployment rate, and a shortage of necessary items, including medicine.
While supporting Iran’s suit in the International Court of Justice, with regards to the return of all US sanction and also restricting measures which directly or indirectly target Iranian companies or individuals, which had been removed through the JCPOA, NGOs are calling on all Iranian citizens to make their objection voices heard by the US government and other nations through the signing of this petition. It must be said that if the signatures reach 100,000 the US government will be obliged to respond and review the issue. Petition web page:
