Video: Iran activists mobilise against political isolation

A decade after its founding, some 50 women are now members of the group Iranian Mothers for Peace. They've recently composed a petition addressed directly to US President Donald Trump, explaining that many Iranians do not want sanctions and do not want to send the country's youth off to war. One member of the group, Parvin Fahemi, told FRANCE 24: "We're afraid of war, we're afraid of sanctions, poverty, violence, everything. But we are strong willed. We try to preach peace to everyone, and tell them that all we truly want is peace. We want to show that we're a peaceful people."
