CloseUpSmall.jpg“The false imprisonment of Iranian/American scholar Kian Tajbakhsh and 100 other activists involved in the ongoing democracy movement in Iran deserves our immediate attention.

I urge those of us living in a democratic society to speak out against the current Iranian regime’s system of political repression and human rights violations threatening to silence these activists and journalists.

Without freedom of speech and the right of dissent, there can be no viable democracy.” stingsignaturesmall.jpg

    There are a few absolutes in the world; some of them were proven while Hitler set about to destrroy opposition. Dictators need to be stopped in their tracks, not while the rest of the world waits to see how far they will go. Iran must be stopped from these political and human righs abuses.
