International Day in Support of Political prisoners in Iran
Is you might be aware, on 20 June 2011, Campaign to Free Political Prisoners in Iran (CFPPI) organised a global day of action in support for political prisoners in Iran. Human rights organisations, trade Unions and concerned individuals in 50 countries across the world were united in demanding an end to torture, imprisonment and executions of dissidents in Iran. This day was also held in 2012 and 2013.
We are organising a similar event this year and we are aiming to attract more human right organisations and strengthen our alliance. The strong support we received the previous years reconfirmed that the international community will not tolerate violations imposed by the Iranian regime.
On 20 June 2014 we would like to invite you to join us in support of political prisoners deprived of medical attention.
We would like to ask you to join us in any other way possible. Some of the suggested ways to support:
- Issue a statement on behalf of your organisations in support of political prisoners in Iran and demand their release
- Hold/attend demonstration in front of the Iranian embassy or city centres in your counties (see list of cities on our weblog)
- Petition signing
- Send a protest letter (click here)
Your support is vital to save political prisoners in Iran.
