Unite for human rights in Iran on February 11th
Here's a link to Amnesty International's action campaign for Iran on Feb 11th. There is some terrible stuff going on there, and your voice can help change that situation. If you really want to make peace in the Middle East, work to bring justice to common people there.
February 11th is Victory of the Revolution Day in Iran. Equivalent to the Fourth of July in the United States, it is a day commemorating liberty, independence and freedom. But the Iranian government has long violated these rights and is responsible for numerous abuses including torture, arbitrary arrests, censorship and the most recent execution of two activists accused of inciting the post-election protests on June 12th – even though these men had been held in detention long before the violence erupted.
Since blogs and websites like Twitter and YouTube were virtually the only way the Iranian people could expose the horrific treatment being inflicted on them in the days following the contested Presidential election, we expect that Iranians will turn to the Internet once again to carry their messages. That is why we are asking everyone to show their solidarity online on February 11th – whether it’s on your blog, website, or social networking profile.
Stand with us to ensure that Victory of the Revolution Day signifies an end to these abuses!
