Barletta Votes to Condemn the Iranian Regime for Violence Against Protestors

 

WASHINGTON – Today Congressman Lou Barletta (PA-11) voted for H. Res. 676, a resolution supporting the rights of the people of Iran to free expression, while condemning the Iranian regime for its crackdown on peaceful protests.  The resolution passed the House of Representatives by a vote of 415 to 2.

 

“The Iranian regime maintains an iron grip over the freedom of the Iranian people,” Barletta said following passage.  “The regime, which spends most public funds on senseless and bloody terrorist excursions throughout the world, sees dissent of their brutality as a threat to power, not an opportunity for reform.  I applaud the brave Iranian people who plead for deliverance from a regime gripping their nation in tyranny and terror.  Congress must continue to take strong steps to pressure the Iranian regime into changing their policy of international terrorism.”

On December 28, 2017, anti-regime protests broke out in Iran, with protestors expressing grievances over the economy, corruption, and role of the Revolutionary Guard Corps within the country.  According to reports, as many as two dozen individuals have been killed and over 1,000 have been arrested in connection with the protests.
