100 Cities Against Stoning: “a historic day in the struggle against the barbarism of the Islamic Republic of Iran”

August 31, 2010

August 30, 2010

Ashtiani/stoning posts

The 100 Cities Against Stoning Protests, sponsored by the International Committee Against Stoning, the International Committee Against Execution, Mission Free Iran, and Iran Solidarity in the name of Sakineh Ashtiani and other condemned Iranian prisoners, were a success even early on.

What follows is a same day post from The International Committee Against Execution declaring August 28th “a historic day in the struggle against the barbarism of the Islamic Republic of Iran”.

A snip:

On this day, we proudly declare that we shall most resolutely continue this fight until Sakineh Ashtiani all those sentenced to stoning have been unconditionally freed, until stoning has been abolished around the world, until all criminal laws of the Islamic Republic have been complete revoked, and, indeed, until the regime itself has been brought down.

Since recession started and barry came into office

FOOD STAMPS: 40M – up 50%

WELFARE: 4.4M – up 18%

UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS: 10M – up 4x 9

  • Jan peak – 12M
  • Congress has extended it 8 times past the 26 mos
  • Costs 4x what it used to
  • Unemployed can collect for almost 2 years (99 weeks)

MEDICAID: 50M – up 17%

And barrycare will add 16M people to healthcare system that doctors say is already overloaded.

Who is going to end up paying for this?

You, me, China and Saudi Arabia.

Who has donated more to Pakistan monsoon relief: US or Muslim countries?

Ms Ashtiani’s lawyer’s letter to Iran’s Supreme Court

Ms Ashtiani’s children/lawyer refused visitation

Here is a translated letter from Ms Ashtiani’s government appointed local lawyer, Houtan Kian to the Supreme Court of Iran. It doesn’t flow very well but it lists the obvious facts that Ms Ashtiani received her punishment for adultery even though no man has ever been charged or even named as her alleged sexual partner. He also states that it is against the law to punish someone twice for the same crime, which is what is being done.

Ms Ashtiani is being executed because of a judge’s knowledge. Period.
