AIPP (in Exile) believs that fighting for human rights and human dignity, freedom of political prisoners, abolishment of torture, inspection of beliefs, death penalty and other cruel treatments imposing by the Islamic regime of Iran, can not be separated from the struggle against this regime. Violation of human rights in Iran has a close relation with the ruling power and the government, the general suppression, political, social and economic discrimination, and sexual inequality.
AIPP(in Exile) believes that freedom of political prisoners, closure of political prisons, abolition of torture, death penalty and other cruel and inhuman treatments, freedom of Expression and Thoughts, freedom of the Press and the PEN, freedom of organisation , strike, protest and are part of a more general question of the Iranian society, the issue of political freedoms. As long as the islamic regime is in power, political freedoms will not be possible in Iran. Therefore, the struggle for the above-mentioned issues cannot not be seperated from the struggle against entire of the Islamic regime of Iran.
Since society is divided into antagonistic
the entire human history is riddled with oppression, injustice, cruelty, inequality, discrimination and human rights violations. In such a society, two belligerent forces face each other. On one side the masses fighting for their rights, elimination of inequality, oppression and discrimination, and on the other side the ruling oppressors fighting to safeguard the inhuman existing conditions.
AIPP(in Exile) stands on the side of the masses fighting for a new, equal and human society where no discrimination, oppression, injustice and exists.
