In my opinion, anyone interested in a free Iran should carefully read this letter to Barack Obama from Iranian activists and consider SENDING IT to as many international authorities as possible.
My reason: I agree with those who say sanctions can be ineffective. Is it even possible for sanctions to be effective when the international community continues to skirt them? If the international community stayed true to the sanctions and implemented the additional ones stated in this letter, then the probability of the sanctions effectively weakening the Iranian regime in a shorter span of time significantly increases. However, this is all contingent on whether the international community is willing to weaken the Iranian regime. If not, then it means that sanctions, the freedom movement, and human rights in Iran as a whole is trivial to the world.
For those who are very opposed to sanctioning the Iranian regime but still wish for Iran's freedom: Other than sanctions, what else can weaken the Iranian regime? Are there other options? Waiting on nature to take its course is not an option, when the greatest Iranian souls are suffering behind bars.
