Saeed Malekpour, resident of Canada, a freelance web developer and programmer was arrested in October 2008 in the city of Tehran while visiting his terminally ill father in Iran. He is sentenced to death on charge of “Agitation against the regime”.
Zaniar Moradi & Loghman Moradi, political activists; they were arrested in August 2009; both of them are sentenced to death on charges of moharebeh (being enemy of God) and “corruption on earth”.
Sherko Moarefi, a political activist, was detained in October 2008; he was sentenced to death for “acting against national security” and “being enemy of God”.
Yusuf Naderkhani, an Iranian pastor sentenced to death for converting from Islam to Christianity.
These political prisoners are in grave danger of being executed any time now. We call on all of you who care for human rights and freedom of expression to act now and save their lives.
Time is running out. This is an urgent appeal. We need to act now. Their only “crime” is the exercise of their freedom of expression.
The Islamic regime of Iran is sentencing Saeed, Zaniar, Loghman, Sherko, Yusuf, and hundreds of others to death in order to terrorize all of those who demand change and freedom.
IT IS IMPORTANT THAT WE ACT NOW!
Their lives depend on your support. The international support has been successful in forcing the Islamic regime in Iran to retreat from executing prisoners;
We can do it again this time too, BUT WE NEED TO ACT QUICKLY!
All you have to do is to copy and paste the below message and send it to the human right organisations and recipients below. This would only take you one minute, but that one minute of yours can save four lives.
