In its own joint letter, the Impact Iran coalition calls on the international community, including the ongoing UN General Assembly and nascent Human Rights Council sessions, to take all opportunities to address the ongoing human rights violations associated with the protests, including “the establishment of an investigative and accountability mechanism in order to end impunity for repeated cycles of grave violations of human rights and crimes under international law committed in the country
