Global Day of Action in Support of Human Rights in Iran, on the Anniversary of the Disputed Presidential Election

‘Rallies Planned in More Than 65 Cities around the World’

WHAT: To mark one year of crackdown and blatant human rights abuses since the disputed presidential election on June 12th, we are coordinating a global day of action in partnership with wide range of local, students, online groups, prominent NGOs, activists, concerned citizens, and many others. Nearly 65+ cities - ranging from Berlin to Bahrain and Tokyo to Cairo - have already committed to hosting events.

In addition, on June 10-12, mobile billboards will be circling key cities around the world including Los Angeles, London,
and Johannesburg (during the world cup!). During the week of June 12, & Balatarin are partnering to stream events live
and uploaded videos of the week's activities from around the world.

WHY: The Iranian government continues to commit human rights violations by arbitrary arrest, torture, rape and killing of its citizens. Last month the world heard the sudden news of executions of four Kurd political activists and another man, the five were denied fair trials. Many
others who were just asking for their votes to be counted have been
arrested and some have been sentenced to death. There is a fear that
in the run up to the first anniversary of the last year disputed
presidential election, the government could carry more executions in
attempt to intimate people. So on this day we are demanding the following:

1. Abrogation of the execution of all political prisoners & Prisoners of Conscience.
2. Free all political prisoners / prisoners of Conscience with no exception or pre-condition.
3. Upholding the UN Human Rights Declaration and respecting Civil and democratic rights of the people of Iran.


The day's sponsors include;
United4IRAN, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, Reporters Without Borders,
Nobel Women's Initiative, LDDHI: Iranian League for the Defense of
Human Rights, Pen International, International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran , Physicians for Human Rights, Cairo
Institute for Human Rights Studies, Baha'i International Community,
Society for Human Rights in Iran Southern California, Mourning Mothers,
Los Angeles, Society for Democracy in Iran, Los Angeles

I'll be in Iran for the entire month. Only if I knew, I'd have travelled to LA instead to demonstarte sholder to shoulder with my hezbullah loving cyber warriers, turned green with Israel's success in quelling another little storm in a tea cup of international waters :) 


Thank you

Drop the pretense, already

When a demonstration earns the endorsement of the IRI's Amen Corner, then some scepticism is certainly in order. There has never been, will never be, and can never be respect for human rights under the Rapist Regime. It is the most repressive and violent history in Iran's modern history, having executed an exponentially larger number of our fellow Iranians in 1979-1982 alone (not to mention all the other years of the rapists' reign) than the Shah's dictatorship did from 1941-1978. The only way to advance human rights for Iranians is regime change, pure and simple. Everything else is a waste of time--deliberately so, and therefore sure to win the endorsement of the Falasteen, ya Falasteen Brigade of propagandists. Alright, now can we please receive the latest update on the Gaza flotilla? Thank you.
