    Joint Letter of the Nobel Laureates

    To the World Leaders

    April 20, 2024


    Joe Biden, President of the United States

    Antonio Gutierrez, UN Secretary General

    Charles Michel, President of the European Council

    Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada

    Copies to:

    Leaders of 27 member states of the European Union


    We, the undersigned Nobel laureates, express our deep concern over the appalling and deteriorating state of human rights in Iran. We are deeply concerned by the Iranian regime’s ruthless suppression of the people of Iran, including ethnic and religious minorities. Iran remains the world's leading per capita executioner, killing at least 864 people in 2023.

    During the 2022 uprising, the Iranian people rejected any form of dictatorship, whether monarchical or theocratic, and called for regime change to establish a democratic republic. 

    Unable to crush the protest movement for change, the Iranian regime is the driving force behind the war in the Middle East, particularly since the October 7, 2023, attacks. The regime now threatens world peace by destabilizing the region and exporting terrorism through its known proxies. This is an effort to divert attention from its systematic crackdown on dissent and democracy activists and to escape accountability.

              On April 16, a significant bipartisan effort unfolded within the United States House of Representatives as House Resolution 1148 was introduced. Co-sponsored by 145 Representatives, this resolution stands as a firm condemnation of the Iranian regime’s multifaceted offenses, including acts of terrorism, fueling regional conflicts through proxy warfare, internal repression, and backing the Iranian Resistance, including the Ten-Point Plan advocated by Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran.

    Furthermore, hundreds of esteemed professors from across the United States have joined the growing chorus of international concern. Their letter to President Biden emphasizes that the world must acknowledge the right of the Iranian people to defend themselves against the terrorist IRGC and their rightful aspiration to establish a democratic, secular republic accountable to its people. This is a strategic necessity for the region and the world.” The signatories, comprising American Nobel laureates, Templeton Laureates, members of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, and recipients of numerous prestigious accolades, call on the United States to unequivocally stand in solidarity with the Iranian people.

    We, the Nobel Laureates, join the international support for the democratic demands of the Iranian people, including over 4000 parliamentarians from 41 countries around the world and 125 former world leaders in 2023 to express support for the Ten-Point Plan for the Future of Iran of Mrs. Maryam Rajavi that calls for the universal right to vote, free elections, a market economy, and separation of religion and state, and advocates gender, religious, and ethnic equality, a foreign policy based on peaceful coexistence, peace in the Middle East, and a nonnuclear Republic of Iran. 

    We strongly condemn the Iranian regime's ruthless suppression and violation of human rights of its own people, its destructive role in the Middle East and its belligerent policies. Also, we join the global demand of blacklisting the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) as a terrorist entity by the free world states. The IRGC is the main source of brutality and suppression of the Iranian people and export of violence to the other parts of the world.   We firmly maintain that the Iranian people, as well as the youth, possess an inherent right to ardently contend with the existing regime in order to establish the principles of democracy and freedom. This fundamental entitlement merits unequivocal acknowledgment.
