WHO WE ARE?
We believe knowledge is the most important instrument of power for human beings. Therefore on any issue, public awareness is the key to success. However we also recognise that spreading knowledge and public awareness requires hard work and it is a daunting task.
MAKE THE WORLD INFORMED
As Iranian Communities in Europe, we feel a sense of responsibility towards the communities we live in but also towards our families and friends in our homeland, to make the world informed about events in that part of the world. This is not in our view, simply an issue relating to foreign affairs. We are living in the age of communication. The world and everything in it is interconnected. Events in the Middle East have a direct impact on our life in Europe.
ALLIANCE FOR PUBLIC AWARENESS
It is with this view and belief that we set up the Alliance for Public Awareness. We are not doing it simply as a community of specific minorities but as part of the European community with knowledge and opportunity to make the public aware of issues of importance for peace, security and the promotion of human rights.
Members of our communities are well integrated in different countries where they are residing. They make valuable contributions to where they live. Indeed, we are proud to say that members of our communities form one of the most educated and law abiding parts of society.
We strongly reject fundamentalism and in particular the phenomenon of Islamic fundamentalism and extremism. We believe in individual freedom as guaranteed by law in democratic countries.
