The plight for freedom and democracy continues in Iran, and now morethan ever before the people of Iran are in need of internationalsolidarity and support. It is impossible to remain silent in response to the Iraniangovernment’s campaign of terror against the peaceful protestors in thepost-election aftermath. Young Iranian men and women have beensubjected to the unspeakable brutalities of rape, torture, beatingsand public humiliation through forced confessions. The mass imprisonment, state inflicted brutality and attacks on civilrights that we have been witness to since the June 12 Iranian electionare a manifestation of 30 years of human rights violation in Iran.Forced confessions and kangaroo courts are a hallmark of thisoppressive regime. Please join us on August 29 to show mass support and continuedsolidarity for the people of Iran and condemn the human rightsviolations committed by the Iranian government. Organized by:
