Categorised under the topics of Human rights, International politics and government and Iran.

That this House supports the right of citizens in Iran to protest; commends the bravery of the thousands of Iranian citizens who have taken to the streets in 20 cities to protest the clerical regime of Ayatollah Ali Khamenei; notes the strong sentiments being expressed against the regime's policies in support of terrorism and destabilising activities in the region; is concerned by reports of up to 3,000 people being detained, including students, as part of an attempt to suppress anti-government protests; expresses deepest sympathies to the families of all those who have died; calls on the Iranian Government to restore the basic right of internet access to its citizens; condemns all acts of violence and suppression against the protesters carried out by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC); further expresses serious concerns over the IRGC's role in human rights violations in Iran and support for terrorism abroad more generally; and calls on the Government to include the IRGC on the list of proscribed organisations, impose punitive measures against its officials and to work with allies to expel the IRGC from Syria, Iraq and across the entire Middle East.

This motion has been signed by a total of 26 MPs.
