(AFP) UNITED NATIONS The US Ambassador to the United Nations called on the international community to speak out on the unfolding protests in Iran, saying the US would seek emergency UN talks on the situation.
The people of Iran are crying out for freedom, Nikki Haley said at a news conference. All freedom-loving people must stand with their cause.
She said the United States would be seeking emergency sessions of the UN Security Council and the Geneva-based UN Human Rights Commission in the coming days. Haley rejected as complete nonsense charges by Irans supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei that the five-day-old protests were being fomented by the countrys enemies.
The freedoms that are enshrined in the United Nations charter are under attack in Iran. Dozens have already been killed. Hundreds have been arrested, she said. If the Iranian dictatorships history is any guide, we can expect more outrageous abuses in the days to come, she said.

That would eliminate 97.64% of the UN...
What is the point to an “Emergency Session”?
We never have and won’t now do anything to interfere on behalf of the protests.
Iran will continue to abuse its people until a full, shooting revolution starts. The Guards and Mullahs have pretty much full control and all the guns.
Why, so the U.N. can come out against the protesters?
Can’t have the peasants taking control...
When the time comes that American people finally slap down the Occupy/Antifa/BLM thugs, the U N better stay far out of our way.
Ahhh. This is brilliant. This doesn't really have anything to do with Iran. This maneuver is for the UN. I believe this is for two things.
1) To test the UN following Haley's last appearance and pseudo threats. Are you now with us or still against us?
2) To further advertise the UN's complete and utter impotence and disdain for their largest donor and most powerful member.
I think they expect the UN ignore us and put another notch in the belt for when the USA cuts funding. If the UN were smart, they would assemble. But I don't think they are smart.
Or to issue a resolution against Israel for the protests in Iran....
Hey, looks like you caught me forgetting the obvious.
Maybe the UN can move to Jerusalem?
Is there any doubt as to what the answer to that is?
find a way to get the Iranian anti-mullocracy protesters millions of Sten gun type sub-machine guns , zillions of mags and 9mm rounds . Flood the place . Screw the IRG , let them face the 9mm bees
we need to develop distro a very cheap to produce light weight automatic weapon that can be mass produced for delivery to anti tyrant populations : Iran - NK - Venezuela , etc
It’s a good opportunity to show once again how impotent the UN is when it comes to promoting or protecting human rights by calling it into session.
Would be better if she wasn’t an adulteress who disrespected white southerners,but oh well.
More productive than cheating on her husband or banning the Stars and Bars.
She is still an insane whore.
Did she step out on her husband? Then remarry?
I don't know anything about that part of her life.
>>Would be better if she wasnt an adulteress who disrespected white southerners,but oh well.<<
Yeah right. And it would also “be better” if people made an effort to comment on the subject under discussion and resist the temptation to engage in character assassination.
