Iran Urged France to Respect Human Rights and Not to Use Force Against Protesters

Iran’s Foreign Ministry has condemned the brutal crackdown on a popular protest in France.

“We strongly condemn the suppression of peaceful protests by the French people. We call on the French government to respect human rights and refrain from using force against its people who peacefully stand up for their rights,” the Iranian side said in a statement.

Council of Europe Commissioner for Human Rights Dunja Mijatović also condemned the actions of official Paris, saying she was concerned about the “excessive use of force” against demonstrators at the protests against pension reforms in France, and called on the authorities to respect the right to freedom of demonstration.

In France, the number of injured in these protests alone has already passed the 100 mark, with between a million (according to the authorities) and a million and a half (according to the protesters) people taking to the streets yesterday.
