At these crucial times in our history it is obvious to any fair non-bias person, Iranian or otherwise that the IRI tyrants have lost all their credibility and legitimacy among Iranian people.
Today the only groups who support this regime are either those who are part of the system of suppression and in fear of prosecution and punishment after the fall of this regime or those who directly profit from its existence through getting paid by it like Basij, Sepaah, Hezbollah and Hamas. Also the only governments who still have close ties with the IRI are those who have never had any regards for human rights, even of their own citizens. On the top of the list of there governments is the government of China who has now found a perfect opportunity to manipulate and exploit the situation in Iran.
The Chinese dictators know very well that the IRI has lost its national based support and legitimacy and can not survive without foreign assistance. From their own experience they know well that this type of regimes are venerable and open to paying bribes, so they can strike any deal they want with them.
That was why during the past few months the Chinese government have been selling anti-riot gears and assault weapons to IRI and specially Sepaah e Pasdaran. They are providing them with tear gas electric batons, pepper spray, helmets anti riot cars (one of which was used to kill an Iranian citizen during Ashoora), water canons and other suppression tools. All these in return to some rip off oil and gas deals with the IRI that would enable China to loot and steal our national assets.
There are also evidence that Chinese military along with Russians are training the Sepaah’s especial forces and riot police along with providing them with those necessary gears to enable them to suppress our people more brutally and effectively.
Now the question is that what can WE, and especially that group of Iranians, our HAMVATANS who live abroad in US, Canada, Australia, Europe and other parts of the planet can do?
We all agree it is difficult to take of big governments like China single handedly, or try to persuade your local official to ask their government to warn China about their behaviour or even ask the owners of big businesses in these countries to take some actions.
However one thing that we all can do without a lot of effort and cost to ourselves is to
Boycott Chinese goods and services.
Also ask your friends to do the same. Especially those who live in the West can inform their friends particularly the local non Iranians that they also need to join in this act of protest and boycott of Chinese goods. This could force the government of China and those companies who deal with it to change their behaviour and policy towards dealing with IRI and not to contribute towards suppression of our people.
For long time many people were mocking Iranians in exile or as some of us would like to call them the Iranian diaspora, asking them what they can do besides cheap talks in order to help people inside the country, or even raise the question of “do they (exile community) even matter”.
Well! This is now your chance. Now is the time to show how important and effective you can be. Cascade this message to all your friends around the world especially the Western none Iranian ones. Tell them about the crime of IRI and victims like Sohraab, Taraaneh, Nedaa and many other nameless faceless victims who are being tortured raped and murdered inside Evin and other IRI dungeons and remind them that this would not happen but with the help from governments like China and Russia..
Ask them to refuse being part of this crime by boycotting Chinese goods, as this is the easiest action they can take.
I accept that not every body can participate in demonstrations or have time to be a human right activist. After all we all have responsibilities, lives to live and bills to pay at the end on month. But the next time you go shopping just have a look at the label and if it says made in China, just think of Nedaa and DO NOT BUY.
