100 Cities – August 28, 2010: Glasgow Scotland Takes AIM at the Brutality of Stoning in Iran

The amazing women of the Anti-Injustice Movement (AIM) have done it again, bringing the passion of the visual arts to the front of the struggle for Sakineh’s life:

A rally in the centre of Glasgow was attended by members and supporters of The Anti-Injustice Movement and Glasgow Love Police. Two megaphones and some home made muffins drew the attention of the crowd while two large banners made for this occasion by a local artist drew the crowds closer.

Over 500 signatures were collected across campaigns to Free Sakineh, End Stoning and Remove Iran from the UN Commission On The Status of Women. We spoke to a wide range of people including men, women, children, parents, grandparents, a hen party, a stag party, members of a football team, tour bus operators, Glasgow City Council workers and a local bagpipe player. Everyone was keen to lend their support to the campaign and the day was definately a success.

We were all very proud to be representing Glasgow as one of over a hundred other cities around the world, and AIM members were especially proud of their comrades also taking part in events in Niagara Falls, Canada and San Juan, Puerto Rico.

In solidarity, and until there is justice for all,
