Not One More Execution, Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, Solidarity with Women

CNN News Coverage of Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani’s Case

CNN has covered Sakineh’s story in at least two segments of their world news broadcasts. Mission Free Iran‘s July 2nd protest in Washington DC opens the first segment, and the July 4th protest in Köln, Germany, led by Mina Ahadi of the International Committee Against Execution, is covered extensively as well. The broadcasts are embedded below:

1. The first video introduces Sakineh’s story through coverage of the July 2-4 Global Protests, and includes a reading of the letter from Sakineh’s children.

2. The second video focuses on CNN’s interview with Sakineh’s son, Sajjad, who has gone forward to publicly defend his mother and campaign for her freedom despite the well-known risks of doing so under a regime like the Islamic Republic.

We are preparing to open the next stage of the campaign; please stay tuned to Mission Free Iran and the International Committee Against Execution for updates.

  1. I am not surprised that these old gentlemen who no longer have sexual desire, sexual ability or sexual opportunity make rules that satisfy their need for attention (negative though it is) – rules that negatively impact on young, vibrant women and cost them their lives and cause permanent social disabilities to their families and friends.
    It is so odd that sexual behaviour, so essential for the creation of human life and family-building, can also be used as an excuse to end human life and cause family chaos. It just doesn’t make sense to me.
