Geneva exhibition and vigil on human rights violations

On 22 February, timed to coincide with the 49th session of the UN Human Rights Council, volunteers from Verein Welle and exiled Iranians living in Switzerland joined together at Geneva’s Place de Nations, directly in front of the European headquarters of the UN, to hold a vigil and exhibition on the alarming human rights situation in Iran. Several surviving witnesses also spoke at the event and demanded, on behalf of the family members of the victims of the 1988 massacre, that a UN commission be established as soon as possible to investigate this genocide.
