100 Cities, Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani

100 Cities – August 28, 2010: Chicago Shows the World We Stand Together with Sakineh and against Stoning

Nancy Wade very efficiently and effectively organized a demonstration in support of Sakineh Ashtiani in one of America’s biggest cites, Chicago.  Not only did she have a lot of support from other activists who have been inspired to stand up for Sakineh, including Wendy Langacker and Amina Tabally, but she collected a considerable number of petition signatures, which she forwarded on to the appropriate recipients:

I sent the petitions to Hillary Clinton and Ban Ki-Moon. They were sent FedEx next day delivery so they should have them by now. Attached is the cover letter. …Clinton and Ki-Moon have been requested to use their influence to free Sakineh and others. It is time for their reply. We can call the State Department at (202) 647-5291 and the UN Human Rights Council (212) 963-5931.

This is a perfect example of the kind of independent activism that this movement needs to grow and continue successfully. Fantastic work by Nancy and all who came out that day to support the struggle of Sakineh Ashtiani, and to stand against stoning in Iran and worldwide.
