Stop Fundamentalism – Hunger strike in Washington, London, Ottawa, Berlin, The Hague and Stockholm and also Ashraf in Iraq continue, calling for the release of 36 Iranian abductees from Camp Ashraf by Iraqi forces.
Camp Ashraf, located in Iraq near Baghdad, was attacked on June 28, 2009 by the Iraqi forces as Al-Maliki’s government tried to win favors from the Iranian regime by cracking down on its opposition. 11 camp residents were killed and over 500 wounded as the result of the attack and 36 were abducted by Iraqi forces.
The residents of the camp are all Iranian exiles who have left their country fleeing persecution by the Iranian ruling government. They form the largest Iranian opposition movement in exile, seeking overthrow of the mullah’s in Tehran.
