"A brave university student is in danger of execution in Iran and I respectfully urge you to help him and demand Iran to free Mohammad Rashidi. During a speech by Iranian president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Rashidi held a handwritten sign, “Fascist president, Polytechnic [Institute] is no place for you.” While his action was well within the Iranian constitution, he has since been taken from his home and remains in prison in dire condition. He is protesting his condition with hunger strike; he is being tortured and is in danger of execution. As an American Iranian, I appeal to you to do what you can to pressure the Iranian government to let this brave freedom loving young man go.
