Petition to end the repression of the free press in Iran
Immediate release of Iranian journalists!
Immediate resumption of the free flow of information!
The recent political developments in Iran have increased the pressure on journalists. Journalists have been detained, imprisoned and given house arrest by the security services. Independent reporters have been denied access to places of gathering and protest.
Inside Iran this has led to a breakdown in the free flow of information. Iranians are denied the right to have access to the news and other relevant information related to the elections, let alone the right to freely express themselves.
During the post-election unrests in Iran, 23 journalists have been arrested in 5 different cities of Iran. The total number of journalists in prison has increased to 36.
Also the systematical censorship continues. The authorities have censored and filtered websites, jammed satellite radio and television channels and decreased the speed and access to the internet. Iranian people who make the world news these days, have very limited access to reliable news from outside and inside Iran.
For the immediate release of Iranian journalists and the immediate resumption of the free flow of information in Iran, please sign the petition now.
