Take Action for Human Rights Day!!

Posted: December 7, 2010 in Uncategorized

I just got this from my friend’s Facebook!  I thought it is an excellent way to get involved in promoting Human Rights in Iran, and helping free Majid Tavakkoli, an Iranian student imprisoned for exercising his natural right of Freedom of Speech.

Hey Guys,

As you all know, Dec 10th is International Human Rights Day– I’m sure you also know that Iran is at no shortage of horrific human rights violations against its own citizenry.  Journalists are denied their freedoms of speech, students are robbed of their rights to be free-thinking and progressive, and musicians and artists are often imprisoned and tortured– some have even turned to suicide in order to rid themselves of the vicious nature of Iran’s prison system.

The Islamic Regime is occupying an Iran with a rich history of Iranian (not Islamic) culture, arts and warm values continues to radicalize at the expense of the Iranian people, who yearn for the liberties we enjoy, and take for granted. 

Take a stand against the Islamic Regime’s barbaric behavior, and help bring about the freedom of Majid Tavakkoli, a student protestor who is rotting away in prison and being denied medical treatment. 

Please write a letter to Iran’s head of Judiciary URGING Tavakkoli’s release immediately!  Also, write a letter to Tavakkoli himself, reminding him to stay strong!
