Rally on July 25 for the Global Day of Action for Iran!

by on July 23, 2009

Stand in solidarity with political prisoners unjustly detained in Iran by taking part the Global Day of Action for Iran on July 25 in cities around the world. United for Iran, a non-partisan collaborative of individuals (including? Nobel Prize winners Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Shirin Ebadi, Jody Williams) and human rights organizations (including PHR), is bringing people together to rally in support of human rights for the people of Iran during this violent time in Iran's history.

The Iranian government has arrested hundreds of people following the June 12 elections. These prisoners risk torture, execution and other violations of their basic human rights. Human rights lawyers and activists have been particularly targeted, and many are now being detained in section 209 of Tehran's notorious Evin prison.

The Global Day of Action for Iran is the first global rally for human rights in Iran. Events are being held in more than fifty cities around the world---from Boston to Berlin, New York to Los Angeles to Lahore, Oslo to Ouagadougou. Don't miss this opportunity to join with the international community to rally for human rights in Iran!
