Remember Environment Minister McKenna’s wildly tone-deaf tweet praising Syria for joining the Paris Accord? Well, now it seems Canadian environmental NGO, EcoJustice, is doing their best to outdo her.
“Iran is tackling the potential water supply crisis exacerbated by climate change”
They linked to a Guardian article lauding Iran for its commitment to dealing with apparent climate change-induced water shortages. The article is nothing but Tehran propaganda, noting they’re developing a “people-centred” approach to water management.
People-centered isn’t how any sane person would describe Iran’s approach to anything, unless one would describe executing homosexuals and imprisoning women who dare not wear the hijab as people-centered.
Are they aware of how the terrorist regime in Tehran treats environmentalists?
In December 2017, Canadian Iranian professor and founder of the Persian Wildlife Heritage Foundation, Kavous Sayed Imami, was arrested and detained by the Revolutionary Guard. In late January 2018, Iran started arresting even more environmentalists who were part of Imami’s group.
By February the New York Times reported that Emami had died in prison along with three other activists. The regime blamed suicide despite reports of the activists being injured in marathon torture sessions.
Last week, the Iranian Human Rights Monitor reported that five of the eight imprisoned Iranian environmentalists have now been charged with corruption on Earth. They have no access to lawyers nor do they have a trial date set.
But congrats, Rouhani, on fighting climate change!
The modern environmentalist movement is so anti-American, that it will praise dictators as long as they share the same irrational hatred for Donald Trump.
Humans - even other environmentalist imprisoned, tortured and killed in Iran - are just expendable sacrifices to Mother Earth.
If their ends are achieved, the means don't seem to matter all that much to the likes of EcoJustice.
