IOPHRI - Interview with Ann Brusseel, member of Flemish Parliament for Open Vld, who hosted the exhibition 'Diversity in Iran: A source of inspiration for the future' in the Flemish Parliament, Brussels, from 11/06 till 11/07/2012, organized by the International Organization to preserve Human Rights in Iran (IOPHRI)'
The exhibition is highlighting and describing the Persian history as well as the reality of the last 33 years. The focus is on the religious and ethnic diversities in Iran, which are being surpressed and harrassed by the regime of Ali Khamenei. At the same time the exhibition would like to point out the necessities of the present time for the future and invites the visitors to express their ideas, wishes, hopes and expectations and integrate them in the exhibition.
In the exhibition, Amnesty International is drawing the attention to the women's rights in Iran and especially to the case of Nasrin Sotoudeh and Narges Mohammadi who are sentenced to 6 years in prison only for defending the human rights of other victims of the regime.
Both women are mother of two small children.
Earlier this year, from March 5 till 9, the exhibition was organized in the European Parliament and hosted by Alexander Alvaro, Vice President of the European Parliament and member of the ALDE Group.
