Camp Ashraf

A passer-by cyclist engages in conversation with a demonstrator out side the US Embassy in London. The demonstration includes 12 hunger strikers who are campaigning for the protection of Camp Ashraf residents in Iraq. The residents of Ashraf are dissidents that have fled persecution in Iran under the Mullahs in the past three decades. The protesters feel let down by American assurances of protection for their people in Iraq when the Americans handed that duty of protection over to the Iraqi Government who reportedly has taken the opportunity to persecute this ethnic minority.
