Members of the Worker-Communist Party of Iran protest outside a
press conference by Nobel Laureate Shirin Ebadi Tuesday Dec.
9, 2003 at the Norwegian Nobel Institute in Oslo, Norway. Ebadi,
a human rights lawyer from Iran, will receive the Nobel Peace
Prize in Oslo on Wednesday. The protesters objected to the fact
that Ebadi has not used the platform of the prize to condemn
the Islamic regime in Iran. On the signboard is former Iranian
Marxist political leader Mansoor Hekmat. (AP Photo/John McConnico)
