Hajiyeh Must be Freed Now!
More Info at:
2 weeks to the New year!
2 weeks to the end of a womans life in Iran!
Hajiyeh Esmaelvand, is a woman who is going to be stoned to death in Iran by the end of December. We can not let this happen. According to the Islamic laws in Iran and the supreme court of the Islamic Republic of Iran she is to be executed by stoning for having sexual relations outside marriage.
Hajiyeh is yet another victim of backward and brutal laws and values of Islam being imposed on millions of people in Iran. How many lives does it take to tell the world that the Islamic government of Iran is violating every human and civil rights known to man? How many people should live in fear before the Iranian government is condemned? How many acts of stoning must be carried out before we can declare the Islamic government of Iran a government not worthy of being? One life, one person, one stoning is too many!
We the undersigned demand that
* stoning and all forms of capital punishment must be banned in Iran.
* Hajiyeh must be freed now.
* We support the efforts of the International Committee against Stoning and the Organisation for Womens Liberation for ending stoning in Iran. We call upon all to do the same.
