Free Political Prisoners, Human Rights, Not One More Execution

It’s Time to Come to the Streets Worldwide Again This June. Free All Political Prisoners in Iran! Not One More Execution!

The prisons of the Islamic Republic are overflowing with people detained for political reasons. The Islamic Republic is executing people at an apalling rate, most recently Mohammad and Abdollah Fathi, young brothers who were executed because their family members were political activists. Now their mother has been added to the ranks of political prisoners: she was arrested at their funeral.

ENOUGH is ENOUGH. It is time to bring people to the street in cities worldwide again to oppose the bloody barbarity of the Islamic Republic regime. OUR humane society DOES NOT TOLERATE this bloodshed in silence!

Mission Free Iran supports the call of the Campaign to Free Political Prisoners in Iran to mark June 20 as the Global Day in Support of Political Prisoners in Iran. For those whose names we know. For those who remain unnamed. For those suffering unspeakable tortures in the hell of the Islamic Republic’s prisons. We demand in ONE voice: Immediate and Unconditional Release of All Political Prisoners in Iran! Not One More Execution in Iran!

On this page we will maintain a list of cities participating in the June 20 Global Protests. June 20 is a Monday, which is not feasible for many people to hold an action; we encourage everyone to consider holding a demonstration on June 18 or June 19 to support the Global Day.

Participating cities thus far include:

  1. You have my full support. Where do I sign up?

    Posted by Nethan | May 19, 2011, 7:17 pm
    • Fantastic – just let us know the city or town that you’ll hold a demonstration in, and some form of contact information so that people who want to attend can join you. The rest of the details can be posted once you have them finalized. We can help you with posters, flyers, advice on organizing a demo depending on what country you’re in, and we can help to advertise your action. Drop me a mail at maria.rohaly@gmail.com and we can discuss further! Thanks for your support! :)

  2. Our SILENCE is what the criminal regime in Iran is hoping for! Let’s take that hope away from them! Shall we?
