IRAN: HANDS OFF CAIN, OVER 500 PEOPLE EXECUTED SINCE ROHANI BECAME PRESIDENT. VIDEO SHOWS THE DESPERATE STRUGGLE OF AN IRANIAN MAN ON THE GALLOWS

February 28, 2014: Iran has hanged 9 people in the past 48 hours, 3 of which in public in the towns of Karaj, Nazar Abad and Hashtgerd. Over 500 people, including women and children, have been executed since the 'reformer' Hassan Rohani became president last August.
"If the death penalty can be considered a test of a true regime change, the new president has not only not broken with the past, but it has also exacerbated a situation that ranks Iran among the top Executioner countries- in the world”, said Sergio D'Elia, Secretary of Hands Off Cain.
A dramatic video captured the desperate struggle of a prisoner at public hanging in Karaj, moments before he was hung.
His final request to say goodbye to his mother before being killed was denied by the hangmen, who ignored the mother's heartfelt pleas from the audience to say a last goodbye to her son.
In response to the cruelty, the man kicked out at one of the hangmen, knocking him from the gallows box and overturning the bench he was to stand on for the hanging.
A desperate struggle ensued as the outnumbered condemned man fought against hangmen with his hands tied. It was a struggle fated for a tragic outcome, as the guards overpowered the man and carried out the execution right before the man's mother and the public.
