A Letter to Macron

Dear president Macron,

You called the Brazilian president’s statement about your wife “very rude” and “sad” to the Brazilian people, and you even went a little further and said, “I think Brazilian women probably feel ashamed of reading what their president wrote.” I can understand your feeling and anger well! It is very difficult to tolerate an insult to the dear ones, and sometimes it hurts the soul of the human beings, so it becomes so difficult to control your anger that sometimes you like to ” burn the world” in your mind. I can understand your feelings very well! I am an Iranian woman! I had to leave my country. A country where all of my individual rights are systematically violated by the rulers who illegally seized the power 40 years ago. For 40 years, the dictator regime of Iran has violated the rights of my compatriots. They insult, arrest and even beat my fellow sisters, daughters and mothers on the street due to different excuses, and they keep them in prison for a long time. Four of my compatriot sisters were sentenced to 74 years of imprisonment for giving flowers in the subway to women on the International Women’s Day. You know Reyhaneh well! She was eventually executed, her charge was self-defense! The dictator regime takes my Baha’i compatriots’ corps even out of the grave. They shut down their small businesses and ban them from education. They are arrest, tortured, and serve long prison terms every day and their nursing home cares are closed. We have a rich country. However, it is so difficult for my compatriots to support themselves and their families, and also every year a large number of students have to stop studying due to poverty. I do not want to talk about the torture and rape that my Iranian sisters and brothers face in the prisons of the corrupt dictatorial regime of Iran because it is so sad. I have no doubt that you already know everything about that. At this moment when I am writing this letter, I am sure that a large number of my dear ones are being tortured in Iranian Prisons. Some of them are threatened by their dear ones will be killed or raped. Some of my Iranian sisters and brothers are held in solitary confinement, workers are beaten by the security forces, and some of my sisters lose their beauty by acid attacks under the pretext of opposing against the refusing hijab. Some women turn to prostitution to have food for their children! And you invite to negotiations to your country, the lying foreign minister of this illegitimate and criminal regime that is the cause of all the crimes mentioned above. you also tried to prepare him to meet with the leaders of the G-7. Do you not think it is regrettable for you to ignore the daily suffering of 80 million Iranians? Do you not think “French women are probably ashamed of their president’s negotiation with the criminals?” I find it miserable and embarrassing. I feel your anger, I hope you can feel my anger as well.
