Upon the termination of her hunger strike Ms. Nasrin Sotoudeh the human rights lawyer imprisoned by IR thanked a number of people and groups in a letter which was published in this site by my fellow blogger @Ruhany.
In this letter Ms. Sotoudeh specifically thanks the Iranians in the diaspora and underscores their importance in Iran's struggle for freedom and Democracy.
از مهاجران ايراني كه پس از جنبش سال 88 نشان دادند تا چه اندازه حضورشان منشا خدمات ارزندهاي براي احياي حقوق بشر و دمكراسي در ايران است]
[I thank ] the iranians in the diaspora who after the uprising of the year 88 (2009) showed how their involvement is a valuable vehicle for attainment of freedom and democracy in Iran]
I have always thought that we Iranians who live in societies that afford us free speech need to be the voice of the voiceless of Iran. We, the Iranians of the diaspora have been mocked and often advised not get involved through a quasi subversive quote of "change must come from within". In my opinion, change must come from all possible fronts of this struggle, Ms Sotoudeh seems to agree.
Thank you Ms. Sotoudeh to confirm our important role.
