Q: How can I help save Delara?!
Here are some ideas but you can come up with your own and let usknow too:
Q. I go to high school andI want to know how my school friends can get more involved?
Q. I feel helpless , whythere are no news on the media?
Once such human rights news comes out, it takes a day or twountil mainstream media covers it. It also very much depends on the degree ofthe public and official attention to the matter, therefore your reactions makesa difference. Yesterday Amnesty International and Agence France-Presse (AFP) bothreported the pending execution and some other international newsagencies and websites in Europe and Asia are also reporting it. There hasnot been much exposure in the United States Media. You can see the latestcurrent international coverage by typing DELARA DARABI in Google and clickingon the NEWS.
Q. What is the latest news from Iran?
Delara's attorney and family along with many ordinarypeople and human rights activists, artists and celebrities are tryingto obtain the pardon of the the family of thevictim. Due to international pressure, the government ofIran has pressured Delara's father who is desperatelytrying to save Delara, to publicly but indirectly in a letterdenounce the coverage of Delara's situation and the SCE documentary that they participatedin 3 years ago which has been broadcasted to Iran from inthe Iranian opposition Satellite Televisions. However based on the historyof prior harrasments of Delara and her family by officials of IslamicRepublic which resulted in 2 years of silence by the family we know thatDelara's family is under pressure from the officials in Iran to make suchdesperate remarks. In fact the attempt of officials of Islamic republicto silence Darabi family and Delara was an attempt to try to execute Delarawith least attention in Iran and around the world and to try to shift theblame for the pending execution of Darabi's family's on others. Delarahas been a symbol of the struggle to Stop Child Executions in Iran and herpicture is on the top of websites of the Stop ChildExecutions and her name on top of the SCEpetition. Meanwhile Mr. Khoramshahi Delara's attorney is also making hislast efforts to obtain family's pardon and also obtain an stay of the executionand a retrial to prove that Delara could not have been the cause of the allegedmurder as she was a young petite and fragile left handed sensitivegirl, a poet and a painter while her adult boyfriend who was onlysentenced to 10 years imprisonment was right handed. Hossein is due tobe released in 4 years. It is said that Hossein has contacts inthe judiciary of city of Rasht. The demands to create the re-enactment of thecrime scene has been denied for the past 6 years. Delara's attorney AbdolsamadKhoramshahi is also the attorney for Iranian-American Journalist Roxanna Saberi who was sentenced yesterdayin a one day closed court session to 8 years imprisonment underthe accusation of spying for United States government.

Q. Are there anydemonstrations planned?
Demonstrations requireprior authorizations from local authorities and considering thatwe practically had 3 days since the news, 2 days of it being weekend,nothing could be arranged. However Amnesty International was able toschedule a demonstration in front of the Iranian Embassy in London at9:00 am Monday morning. Although this may be after the scheduled execution timebut sometimes executions are delayed and also Iranian officials are alreadyaware of such demonstration.
