Iranian Americans from all over the US and American dignitaries strongly condemn the attack on Camp Liberty residents, call for swift and immediate action by the UN and US, urge the return of residents to Camp Liberty

In a strong display of solidarity, more than 1,500 Iranian American delegates from 37 states across America, came together to condemn a deadly attack against Iranian dissidents in Iraq, and call for a new policy approach towards the Iranian regime.

In the wake of the overnight attack against Camp Liberty which left six dead, including one woman, and more than 100 injured, speakers focused on the need for immediate humanitarian action. The residents of Camp Liberty, which is located near Baghdad, are members of the main Iranian opposition movement, the People's Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK). This was the third massacre against the residents since 2009.

A bi-partisan group of speakers supported Iranian-Americans in their demands and condemned the attack. The speakers included; Gen. James Jones, President's Obama National Security Advisor until 2011, Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Senator Rick Santorum, Attorney General Michael Mukasey, and 9/11 Commission co-chair Lee Hamilton. Also on the panel were White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card, former Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-Texas), former Homeland Security Advisor to the President, Frances Townsend, and Congressman Patrick Kennedy.
