SHEEHAN: Mandela’s Legacy Lives on in Iranian Resistance | Roll Call | Commentary

Dr. Ivan Sascha Sheehan was published in the congressional newspaper Roll Call on January 7, 2014. He calls on Congress to take up legislation that  would protect Iranian dissidents detained in Iraq at Camp Liberty. The Department of State has condemned the most recent violence directed at the group but more must be done to ensure that additional lives are not lost.

Recently, 17 members of the U.S. House of Representatives took an important step in this regard by filing H.R. 3707 “To ensure the emergency protection of Iranian dissidents living in Camp Liberty.”

The legislation calls on the U.S. to take “all necessary and appropriate steps to ensure the safety of the residents of Camp Liberty” in accordance with international agreements, and to assist the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees in the timely resettlement of “Liberty” residents to safe locations outside of Iraq, including in the United States.

Passing the legislation would be a clear signal to Tehran that the U.S. is committed to living up to its prior agreements, enforcing human rights, and protecting those in harms way. But Congress should also push the White House to address the apartheid-like conditions in Iran and explain why the U.S. should compromise human rights to strike a deal with Tehran on uranium enrichment.
