THE FUTURE OF IRAN

TEN POINT PLAN FOR THE FUTURE OF IRAN

  1. In our view, the ballot box is the only criterion for legitimacy. Accordingly, we seek a republic based on universal suffrage.
  2. We want a pluralist system, freedom of parties and assembly. We respect all individual freedoms. We underscore complete freedom of expression and of the media and unconditional access by all to the internet.
  3. We support and are committed to the abolition of death penalty.
  4. We are committed to the separation of Church and State. Any form of discrimination against the followers of any religion and denomination will be prohibited.
  5. We believe in complete gender equality in political, social and economic arenas. We are also committed to equal participation of women in political leadership. Any form of discrimination against women will be abolished. They will enjoy the right to freely choose their clothing. They are free in marriage, divorce, education and employment.
  6. We believe in the rule of law and justice. We want to set up a modern judicial system based on the principles of presumption of innocence, the right to defense, effective judicial protection and the right to be tried in a public court. We also seek the total independence of judges. The mullahs' Sharia law will be abolished.
  7. We are committed to the Universal Declaration of Humans Rights, and international covenants and conventions, including the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, the Convention against Torture, and the Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination against Women.
  8. We recognize private property, private investment and the market economy. All Iranian people must enjoy equal opportunity in employment and in business ventures. We will protect and revitalize the environment.
  9. Our foreign policy will be based on peaceful coexistence, international and regional peace and cooperation, as well as respect for the United Nations Charter.
  10. We want a non-nuclear Iran, free of weapons of mass destruction.

ABOUT OIAC-US

The Organization of Iranian-American communities (OIAC-US) works to promote human rights and democratic freedoms for the people of Iran. This includes advocating for a democratic secular government in Iran, founded on respect for human rights, religious tolerance, and equality among all citizens. Our goal is to organize Iranian-American communities in the United States to promote these values

OIAC is the acronym for Organization of Iranian-American Communities, which contains a dash between "Iranian" and "American." Either form can be used separately, and/or both can be used together, separated by a dash: OIAC - Organization of Iranian American Communities.
The term "Iranian-American" does not merely convey a citizenship or title. It conveys the close relationship between the two cultures. It depicts the complexities each country possesses and the long history of rich similarities between Iranians and Americans. As the two symbols of freedom stand together, the Organization of Iranian-American Communities continues to support democratic change in Iran, where free, prosperous people can stand once more with those of the greatest of nations.
Here the Statue of Liberty Enlightening the World symbolizes "Iranian." The Mother of Exiles shines a welcoming light, which Iranian-Americans have followed through their strife for freedom and independence. She represents the strength and courage so many women in Iran have shown throughout their trifles of democratic change.
