Ahwaz Monitor is a not-for-profit online information hub, publishing news, articles and information updates to raise awareness of the plight of the Ahwazi Arab people in the Ahwaz region of southwest Iran, also known as Khuzestan province. The centre, the first of its kind solely run by members of the Ahwazi diaspora, aims to raise awareness of the suffering of the Ahwazi people under the Iranian regime, which includes systematic violations of the people’s social, political, environmental and human rights.
We get our information directly from credible sources in Al Ahwaz and are translating it from the native language, Arabic, into the international language, English, in an effort to raise wider global awareness and help to bring the cause of Ahwazi freedom, long marginalised and disregarded by the international community and the world’s media to wider attention.
We are very happy to provide any international organisations with credible and well-substantiated information about all aspects of Ahwazi culture, history and current affairs.
We oppose all forms of racism, sectarianism and other forms of bigotry, standing for freedom and human rights universally, for Ahwazis and all other peoples. Our message is one of unity, freedom and brotherhood, standing alongside other oppressed peoples in order to achieve peace, freedom, dignity and human rights for the long-oppressed and persecuted Ahwazi peoples whose suffering at the hands of Iran’s tyrannical theocratic regime has been too long ignored.
