On July 16, 2015, a conference was held at the UK House of Commons entitled: 'The Quest for Freedom and Democracy in Iran'. The theme of the conference was how to bring about human rights in Iran and in Camp Liberty, which houses thousands of members of the main Iranian opposition group PMOI (MEK) in Iraq. Camp Liberty has been under a food and fuel siege since earlier this week. Cross-Party lawmakers from both Houses of Parliament spoke at the conference, as did Mr. Struan Stevenson, former Chairman of the European Parliamentary's delegation for relations with Iraq, and prominent Arab lawyer Sabah al-Mukhtar. The panel took questions from the audience. They called on the UK, US and UN to take urgent measures to compel the Iraqi government to lift its siege on Camp Liberty.
