Email the UN to condemn stoning, demand Ms Ashtiani’s release

Sept 22, 2010

Ashtiani/stoning posts

Letter published in The Guardian calling on the UN to condemn stoning (UN passed a resolution making criticizing Islam a crime but said nothing about stoning), to demand release of Ms Ashtiani (the woman Mahmo the delusional said was never sentenced to stoning) and to boycott Mahmo’s regime of flogging and stoning. Not sure why they didn’t demand the UN remove the Islamic Republic of Iran from the Commission on the Status of Women.

Put together by: International Committee against Executions, International Committee against Stoning and Iran Solidarity.

Included is an email message and the UN’s email address/website to send it to.

Take a second – all you have to do is cut and paste. This site not affiliated with anything or anyone.

Urgent Action: Call on UN General Assembly to condemn stoning, demand Sakineh’s release and boycott Ahmadinejad’s government

Mahmoud Ahamdinejad’s address to the UN General Assembly yesterday was in effect boycotted by delegates. Very few turned up to hear him speak and even less understood what he had to say as there was no translation.

But this is no where enough.

The UN General Assembly must issue an emergency resolution to condemn stoning and call for the immediate release of Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani. Moreover, like Ahmadinejad’s speech, his government must be boycotted. A government that still stones people to death in the 21st century must have no place in the United Nations or any other international institution or body.

In the next two days, please send out the below message to the UN.

You can either email it: inquiries@un.org or post it on their website: http://www.un.org/en/contactus/.

The letter has already been signed by 40 academics, campaigners and writers and published in the Guardian: http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2010/sep/21/un-stoning-iran-boycott

We are writing to ask that the UN general assembly condemn stoning as a crime against humanity and issue an emergency resolution calling for an end to the medieval and barbaric punishment as well as the immediate release of Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani and others sentenced to death by stoning.

We also ask that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad not be allowed to address the general assembly and that his government be boycotted.

A government that still stones people to death in the 21st century must have no place in the United Nations or any other international institution or body.

By the way, if you can, please stand in your city centre, tweet, or upload a video or photo showing your opposition to stoning and support for Sakineh. Of course if you are in NYC, please join the protests there.

Don’t forget to send in reports of your actions and protest emails and tweets to us at iransolidaritynow@gmail.com.

Looking forward to hearing from you.
Warm wishes
