“Citizen Watch” Documentary & Reportage program goal is strengthening civil society, make people stronger and empowering them by raising awareness about the dangers of corruption and the importance to combating it.

The current “anti-Iranian Kleptocratic” campaign is calling on the international community to take action immediately to strengthen the Iranian citizens in fighting against corrupt government. This strategy should empower Iranian citizens to clean up the corruption at its roots in Iran and to achieve the human rights, rule of law and sustainable democracy. Day by day, the number of anti-corruption protests spread across Iran. The non-governmental organizations, the Iranian citizens around the world are joining forces to fight corruption. Today, our most valuable tool for countering corruption is the civil society.

The “anti-corruption” campaign is raising awareness of their rights and give them the voice to unmask the corrupt system and empower them to put an end to corruption and terrorism in the Middle East.

The Iranian economy and the judiciary system are suffering from the rampant institutional corruption. Supreme leader, who is totally controlling the 3 powers, misuses the judiciary to suppress opposition or anyone who condemns him; this abuse of power damaged the independence of the judicial branch and generates a breeding ground for widespread corruption in all courts. Because of this corruption in the Judiciary, there is no independent court to stop corruption.

Our main objectives of this program are founded upon two pillars:

  • Raising awareness about transparency, freedom, justice, human dignity, rule of law, effective democratic institutions, healthy economy, secularism, gender equality and human dignity.
  • Empowering and strengthen civil societies in fighting corruption, actively promoting civil society with the knowledge, tools, and capacity they need to actively and safely counter corruption.

When relevant, we were use humor or sarcasm in order to promote our ideas and touch a wider audience.
