Iran: Defending Minority Rights: The Ahwazi Arabs
Iran is a land of minorities. About half of the population of around 70 millions are believed to belong to ethnic or religious minorities. Despite constitutional guarantees of equality, members of these minorities are subject to discriminatory laws and practices. This document aims to extend Amnesty International's campaigning to promote respect for the civil, political, economic, cultural and social rights of the Ahwazi Arab community in Iran.
