Schiff Condemns Use of Force against Iranian Protesters

Statement

Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Today, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) released the following statement after reports that Iranian police are using force to contain the most significant street protests the nation has seem since the end of the 2009 uprising there:

"The tragic use of force against Iranian protesters displays the stark hypocrisy of that nation's clerical regime. Even as the regime supposedly applauds the right of the Egyptian people to peacefully protest and to determine their own fate, Iran's dictatorship demonstrates its willingness to kill and imprison large numbers of its own population who seek to exercise the same rights. As Americans, we embrace the right of Iranians to express themselves freely, and deplore the brutality of the Iranian government."
