Ahwazis support protest against Khatami's London visit

Ahwazi organisations have given their full support to a demonstration against Khatami's visit to London on Wednesday 1 November.

The demonstration, which will be held outside Chatham House where Khatami is due to speak, is being organised by a number of Iranian left-wing and human rights organisations.

The protestors will call for Khatami's arrest for crimes against humanity, particularly in relation to his administration's murderous treatment of student activists, women, minorities, trade unionists and homosexuals.

Ahwazi groups hope to bring attention to the treatment of ethnic minorities in Iran, including the ethnic cleansing they suffered under Khatami's orders.
