Our public outreach and protest yesterday as part of the 100 Cities against Stoning protests was very successful. We presented the film “The Stoning Of Soraya” on a wide-screen television; we also displayed laptops other videos about state-sponsored violence and punishment in Iran. People were very interested and deeply moved, and asked a lot of questions. Two politicians made speeches at our demonstration, and Dr. Sohela Jandi also made a very moving speech.
