This was an action in solidarity with Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani and others on death row in Iran from Cape Byron Lighthouse, Australia’s easternmost point.
It was an amazing day. There were whales, dolphins and sea eagles off the Cape. We felt their healing energy. People from diverse countries took part in the hour-long solidarity action for human rights in Iran.
Later in the evening, the sunset Drum & Dance Circle at Byron’s Main Beach was the setting for another Byron-style protest over the abuse of human rights in Iran.
“Byron Bay is a beacon of freedom so we support freedom and human rights for all” was the message from the people from Australia’s eastern-most jam and groove hotspot. Blessed by dolphin and whale loving & healing energy, the drums took up the beat: “Save Sakineh!”
