Computer programmer and political prisoner in Iran Saeed Malekpour may be imminently executed. We are asking everyone, worldwide, to call Evin prison and tell them to stop the execution of Saeed Malekpour.
You can enunciate your demand clearly in English; the prison staff will understand his name and why you are calling; some do speak English.
You can also say “Stop the execution of Saeed Malekpour” in Farsi like this: “Saeed Malekpour raa edaam nakonid!”
Or you can say “Saeed Malekpour azad baayad gardad,” which means Saeed Malekpour must be freed!
Thank you to @shary20 on Twitter and dear Nick for the translations to Finglish.
The numbers that are currently staffed at Evin Prison are the following:
The number +982122430017 may also work, but when we tested it, no one answered. Many thanks to Nasi Payghambarian for providing these numbers.
If you call from the US or Canada, don’t forget to dial 011 first.
When people call Iran from all over the world in different languages & demand a stop to the execution of political prisoner, it makes a difference. Even if we ultimately cannot stop the execution, it lets those who are supporting these executions know, firsthand, that the world is watching and we will stand up to defend the lives of Iranian political prisoners. That too has its effects, even if only psychological. No effort is wasted.
If you can’t call long distance on your phone, you can also use Skype and do a Skype-to-phone call. You need to buy some Skype credit, but is very inexpensive to call from skype-to-phone.
The prison staff were civilized when they were called. So don’t be afraid. Call Evin Prison in Iran & tell them not to execute Saeed Malekpour!
REPORTS FROM PEOPLE WHO HAVE TAKEN ACTION:
“Just found a great tactic:
Go to Youtube and find a protest video in which people are chanting.
Call Evin and tell them that people are coming to occupy the prison.
Then you let them hear the sound of the clip.
I think the guy just **** his pants even if just for a second. If we keep telling them they will **** their pants again.

“Just made the call. They said that there is noone with that name there but don’t listen to they’re bullshit. A good idea is to play sounds from protests in they’re ear. He told me to stop calling even though I’ve only called once, can only mean one thing :) also there was someone on the line the first time I tried.

“I said it in English first, then Farsi! I only called the first number – will call the rest as soon as I get home! The guy sounded confused at first – he was just really quiet after I said, “I’m calling to tell you to stop the execution of Saeed Malekpour.” So then I said it in Farsi. And he said… I don’t know – something short, like OK. And he was civil, just sounded a little surprised lol.”
