The FELGTB (Federación Estadal de Lesbianas Gays, Transexuales y Bisexuales) from Spain denounces the beginning of a genocide in Iran of homosexuals and transsexuals.

After the announcement done by the spokesman of the Iranian Judicial Power, Ali Reza Yamshidi, from which one is going away to come to the execution of 20 people condemned by adultery and homosexuality. The photo above correspond to the execution of two homosexual young people in Iran, and other 15 are in the middle of the corresponding legal procedure, within a plan that it has as objective “to clean to the cities of criminals and evildoers” the FELGTB wishes to condemn the genocide that it means.

The President of the FELGTB, Antonio Poveda, has made a call to the international community for “the exigency of respect to the human rights in Iran. The scorn to the life of the people and the total absence of freedom are something more than a sporadic holder in a newspaper: They have to mean in our countries the social rebellion and it repulses, and the exigency to our Governments of a consensus and forceful action in defense of the values of coexistence and they take shelter in the Declaration of the Human rights”.

On the other hand, David Montero, person in charge of the FELGTB for international matters, condemned the “strategy of criminalization of the homosexual love which they carry out all the religious fundamentalism, that are fomenting hatred towards lesbians, gays, transsexuals and bisexuals.
