Shirin Nariman, a human rights activist, a former political prisoner, and one of the the campaigners collaborating with Mission Free Iran in this case has called for global protest in support of Jafar Kazemi and all of those under imminent threat of torture and execution. Mission Free Iran supports that call by opening this campaign.
Cities already confirmed for protest on Thursday August 5 include:
Glasgow SCOTLAND: 2pm on Buchanan Street at the junction with Gordon Street, outside Borders Books (which is now closed but everyone knows it).
Visby SWEDEN: 15:00-16:50pm picket at Öster Centrum
Washington DC USA: 6:30pm in Lafayette Park – Pennsylvania Ave and Jackson Pl, NW – Farragut West (blue, orange lines) or Farragut North (red line) are closest Metro stations
Email email@example.com if you want to hold a demonstration in your city or town. We put together a document on how to hold your own protest for Sakineh Ashtiani; it can also be used for this protest too.
I really think you should be watching the freedom of your own country for now and stop worring about others. There are many more people and children dying from starvation and disease.
David, what is our ‘own’ country, since this blog is written by an international team and read by an international audience?
This is not a case of ‘us’ and ‘them’. We are all human beings and all have equal right, ability and responsibility to shout when others are being silenced and mistreated.
I find your post distasteful and misplaced. No one is stopping you helping these starving people in your own country, whatever one that may be.
GLOBAL PROTEST FOR HUMAN RIGHTS IN IRAN.I SUPPORT YOU!
I feel that we should support all, but mainly this one, becuase this has been going on for too long. Their abusing women, and just basic rights of human LAW.
A life to a person in Iran is lead by fear, and pleasing those who want you for an object.
They insult one gender, one specific gender… and abuse all humans who are not in “their” religion.
It is wrong to have children starve yes, but it’s also very wrong to take a single person and force by torture, abuse, rape, or by death to make them agree with what a country wants or its so-called “followers”
This is a pressing need and we should get behind it with all our efforts and resources. News from inside indicates that the leadership is aiming for more executions. Please support this campaign.
From bottom of my heart, I am opposed to all primitive acts and atrocities such as stoning, killings, and tortures.
No one should be prosecuted and imprisoned outside of full boundaries of civic laws, presentation by professional attorneys, and fair, open and lawful trials.
I pray for establishment of a fair and just democratic government in Iran.
