مشکلِ ما این اداره و اون اداره و اینها نیست، کلیّتِ قضیه است، قانونِ اساسیِ این رژیم است که فاسد است
بهرام مشیری: مشکلِ ما این اداره و اون اداره و اینها نیست، کلیّتِ قضیه است، قانونِ اساسیِ این رژیم است که فاسد است. یعنی در حالی که در بَندِ نُهمِ قانونِ اساسیِ مشروطه، می گوید "جان و مال و شرفِ ایرانی، از تعرض مصِون است"(۱)، در اینجا در باب اقلیّت ها می گوید که "ما باید در حقِ اینها رحم کنیم، ما باید در حقِ اینها مهربان باشیم"(۲)، یعنی جزءِ آدم حساب نمی کنه، و تکیه بر شیعه گری و پنج اصلِ شیعه گری، در قانونِ اساسی! این فساد، اصلاح پذیر نیست، چون از بنیاد خرابه. برگرفته از مناظرۀ بهرام مشیری و صادق زیبا کلام از 12:57 تا 13:37 (۱) اصل نهم: افراد مردم از حیث جان و مال و مسکن و شرف محفوظ و مصون از هرنوع تعرض هستند و متعرض احدی نمی‌توان شد مگر به حکم و ترتیبی که قوانین مملکت معین می‌نماید. (۲) اصل چهاردهم: دولت جمهوری اسلامی ایران و مسلمانان موظفند نسبت به افراد غیر مسلمان با اخلاق حسنه و قسط و عدل اسلامی عمل نمایند و حقوق انسانی آنان را رعایت کنند. این اصل در حق کسانی اعتبار دارد که بر ضد اسلام و جمهوری اسلامی ایران توطیه و اقدام نکنند.

شاهزاده رضا پهلوی در گفتگو با صدای آمریکا: تلاش ما جلب اقدامات عملی برای کمک به مردم ایران است
شاهزاده رضا پهلوی روز جمعه در سخنانی در پایتخت ایالات متحده، با بیان این که جامعه ایران وارد دوران جدیدی از مخالفت با جمهوری اسلامی شده است، از کشورهای آزاد و دموکراتیک جهان خواست به مردم ایران برای رسیدن به آزادی و بازپس‌گیری کشورشان کمک کنند. فرزند آخرین پادشاه ایران برای بحث درباره آینده جمهوری اسلامی، توانایی اپوزیسیون برای بهره گیری از نارضایتی گسترده از ایدئولوژی اسلامی و چشم انداز دموکراسی لیبرال در مسیر آتی ایران، در نشست «انستیتو واشنگتن» حضور داشت و این اظهارات را بیان کرد. شاهزاده رضا پهلوی در این نشست، که به عنوان بخشی از مجموعه «مباحث سیاست گذاری» برگزار و بطور مستقیم از وبسایت اندیشکده پخش شد، سخنان خود را با این مقدمه آغاز کرد که یکی از شعارهای محبوب مردم در جریان اعتراضات اخیر ایران این است: «دشمن ما همین جاست، دروغ میگن آمریکاست.»

رضا پهلوی: نمی‌توان از کمک به مردم ایران گفت و از تغییر رژیم حرف نزد‎‎
شاهزاده رضا پهلوی جمعه ۲۳ آذرماه در نشستی در واشینگتن خواستار تغییر رویکرد آمریکا و کشورهای اروپایی در قبال رویدادهای ایران شد. فرزند آخرین پادشاه ایران در پایتخت آمریکا و در نشست انستیتوی واشینگتن در حضور دهها تن از تحلیلگران و خبرنگاران آمریکایی و ایرانی سخنرانی کرد. «در آستانه چهل سالگی وقوع انقلاب ۵۷، قدم بعدی چیست؟» عنوان این سخنرانی بود. رضا پهلوی در این نشست و در پاسخ به پرسشی در خصوص تاثیر تحریم‌های آمریکا و غرب علیه حکومت جمهوری اسلامی گفت، باید بین تحریم‌ها برای تغییر رفتار جمهوری اسلامی و تحریم برای تغییر رژیم تمایز قائل شد. فرزند آخرین پادشاه ایران گفت: تاکنون هیچ یک از رهبران سیاسی آمریکایی و اروپایی و دیگر کشورها نگفته‌اند؛ بله ما خواستار تغییر رژیم هستیم. رضا پهلوی گفت: شما نمی‌توانید بیایید و بگویید می‌خواهیم به مردم ایران کمک کنیم ولی تغییر رژیم نمی‌خواهیم. شما می‌خواهید ما به دموکراسی برسیم وقتی این رژیم بر سر کار است. این تناقض است. وی تصریح کرد: تغییر برخی سیاست در این خصوص می‌تواند برخی از مشکلات ما در این خصوص را حل کند. آقای پهلوی همچنین خواستار تغییر قوانین تحریمی به نفع مخالفان جمهوری اسلامی شد تا آنها بتوانند از این مسیر به فعالان داخل ایران کمک کنند. فرزند آخرین شاه ایران به نمونه‌های متعدد اعتراض‌های مدنی در ایران طی ماه‌های اخیر اشاره کرد و گفت، تحریم‌های کنونی دولت آمریکا، راه را برای همراهی نهادهای بین‌المللی با این اعتراض‌ها، سخت کرده و هم اکنون مثلاً گروه‌های کارگری یا اتحادیه معلمان در آمریکا، نمی‌تواند کمکی جز انتشار بیانیه انجام دهند. همکاری با مجاهدین خلق رضا پهلوی همچنین در پاسخ به پرسشی در خصوص همکاری با سازمان مجاهدین خلق گفت: مشکلی که همچنان وجود دارد این است که آنها باید برای همکاری با نیروهای موافقت کنند. چرا؟ باید از خودشان پرسید. شاید اگر این کار را بکنند کنترل و تسلط خود را بر ساختارشان از دست می‌دهند. وی همچنین تصریح کرد: سیاست نهایی باید پذیرش نتیجه فرایند دمکراتیک باشد. رضا پهلوی در بخش دیگری از این جلسه پرسش و پاسخ با اشاره به اینکه سرکوب نشانه عدم وجود اعتماد به نفس است گفت به نظر او حکومت جمهوری اسلامی در آستانه انفجار است اما عناصری وجود دارد که باید برای تغییر رژیم مهیا شود. آقای پهلوی از جمله به نقشی که نیروهای مسلح می‌توانند در دوران گذار ایفا کنند اشاره کرد. رضا پهلوی همچنین درباره انتظارش از دولت دونالد ترامپ به دو موضوع رسانه و اموال مقام‌های جمهوری اسلامی اشاره کرد و گفت مالیات‌دهندگان آمریکایی و بریتانیایی هزینه رسانه‌های فارسی زبان را می‌دهند اما به گفته او عناصر اصلاح‌طلب در آنها نفوذ کرده‌اند تا از جمهوری اسلامی حمایت کنند. او همچنین به اموال مقام‌های جمهوری اسلامی اشاره کرد و گفت کشورهای غربی و آمریکا می‌توانند این اموال را به نفع اپوزیسیون توقیف کنند. در آستانه برگزاری این نشست در واشینگتن، نشریه پولیتیکو گزارش داده بود که مقام‌های شورای امنیت ملی کاخ سفید،‌ در سال اول ریاست جمهوری دونالد ترامپ، در پی انتشار یک پیام نوروزی مشترک توسط رئیس‌جمهور آمریکا و فرزند آخرین شاه ایران بودند، که پس از چندی این تصمیم تغییر کرد و آقای ترامپ یک پیام نوشتاری به مناسبت نوروز منتشر کرد. کاخ سفید و همچنین دفتر رضا پهلوی به این گزارش واکنشی نشان نداده‌اند. . . .

پیشنهاد رضا پهلوی: ضبط اموال ایران و وابستگان حکومت به نفع مخالفان
رضا پهلوی، ولیعهد پیشین ایران، در جلسه سخنرانی در یکی از اندیشکده‌های آمریکا، پیشنهاد داد کشورهای غربی اموال ایران در خارج از کشور را ضبط کرده و آن ها را در اختیار "مخالفان دموکرات حکومت ایران" قرار دهند. او همچنین گفت که نزدیکان دولتمردان ایران به کشورهای غربی رفت و آمد می‌کنند و پیشنهاد داد تا اموال آنها هم بررسی شود و در صورتی که مالشان از کیسه ملت می‌رود، آنها را هم توقیف کنند. قای پهلوی که در آستانه چهلمین سال پیروزی انقلاب ایران در انستیتو واشنگتن صحبت می‌کرد، ابتدا دیدگاه‌هایش درباره آینده ایران را توضیح داد و سپس به سوال‌های مهدی خلجی، یکی از پژوهشگران اندیشکده، پاسخ داد. برنامه با سوال‌های حاضرین و خبرنگاران به پایان رسید. ولیعهد پیشین ایران هرگونه کمک - مالی و غیر از آن- از جانب عربستان و اسرائیل به خود را رد کرد و گفت که اگر کشورهای غربی اموال حکومت ایران در خارج از کشور را مصادره کرده و در اختیار نیروهای "دموکرات" قرار دهند بهتر از آن است که آنها را به ایران بفرستند. او مستقیما به باز پس فرستادن اموال ایران به این کشور بعد از امضای برجام اشاره کرد و این پرسش را مطرح کرد که آیا ایران این پول‌ها را صرف مردم و ساخت مدرسه کرد. خود او در پاسخ به این سوال گفت که احتمالا این پول را ایران در سوریه و یمن خرج کرده است

دستکم دو کولبر در مرز بانه کشته شدند
نگاهی به حقوق بشر کردستان ایران ؛ ۲۳ آذر ماه ۹۷ ؛ در پی تیراندازی نیروهای مسقر در مرز بانه به گروهی از کولبر دستکم دو کولبر کشته شدند. به گزارش نگاهی به حقوق بشر کردستان ایران ؛ بیست و سوم آذر ماه سال جاری ، دو کولبر به نامهای ” رحمان کتابی ” چهل و پنج ساله در جا کشته و ” محمد معروفی “بیست ساله اهل روستای ( بژی ) پس از مجروح شدن به بیمارستانی در بانه منتقل شد که متاسفانه پس از چند ساعت شدت جراحات وارده وی را به کام مرگ کشاند. یک منبع مطلع ضمن تایید این خبر گفت : آقای کتابی دارای پنج فرزند و متاهل در این حمله کشته شده است . وی ادامه داد: تیراندازی به این گروه از کولبران در مرز ( هنگه ژال ) صورت گرفته است . سخنان و اظهارات سردمداران و مسئولین امنیتی و نظامی مبنی بر قاچاقچی بودن کولبران و کاسبکاران کُرد، موجب شده تا موج تازه ای از کشتار کولبران در مناطق مرزی کردستان توسط نیروهای مسلح اعمال شود.

دامه روند نزولی قیمت ارز در ایران در حالی ادامه دارد که به گفته حسین راغفر، اقتصاددان، افزایش قیمت ارز توسط خود دولت و برای تامین کسری بودجه و جبران زیان های بانک ها صورت گرفته بود. می‌گویند قیمت ها به دلیل فشار خارجی و تحریم‌ها به شدت افزایش پیدا کرد و ما مدیریت کردیم و کاهش پیدا کرد. یعنی رسما اینطور وانمود می‌کنند که قیمت ارز پایین آمده است.

Johnson & Johnson 'kept secret' that its Baby Powder contained asbestos 

Johnson & Johnson 'kept secret' that its Baby Powder contained asbestos Johnson & Johnson knew that its talcum powder contained asbestos but failed to tell customers for over three decades, an investigation has found.  Shares in the company plunged  12 per cent following the release of the report by news agency Reuters, wiping £37bn ($47bn) off the company's value.  The investigation also found that the pharmaceutical company had employed a range of tactics to shape research into the problem and protect its Baby Powder brand. In one case, the company commissioned and paid for a study, told the researchers their desired results and then hired a ghostwriter to redraft the article presenting the findings. The investigation centres on a cache of documents released by Johnson & Johnson relating to the 11,700 plaintiffs claiming that the company’s talc caused their cancers. The documents show that from at least 1971 to the early 2000s, the company’s raw talc and finished powders sometimes tested positive for small amounts of asbestos, and that company executives, mine managers, scientists, doctors and lawyers fretted over the problem and how to address it while failing to disclose it to regulators or the public.
