Many Iranians have recently endured different kinds of torture, attack, and slandering, deserving the support from the international community. The recent human rights violations in the Islamic Republic of Iran have muffled the voices silently screaming for freedom after the Iranian elections. These voices are of teachers, students, journalists, and bloggers, all trying to support and protest for a just democracy. Each day many of the supporters of peace have been tortured or murdered. Large numbers of violations occur in prisons daily, yet recently such violations have occurred on public streets, screaming for public support from the international community. As Neda Agha-Soltanís friend asked, let us "please let the world know," we are seeking the same goal.
Relevant Facts: Thus far, the Iranian government has released some prisoners in one of several conciliatory gestures aimed at deflecting further criticism. This is because they are clearly aware of their current human rights violations and are trying to prevent media attention and international community involvement. Some of the prisoners they released said they watched fellow detainees being beaten to death by guards in overcrowded, stinking holding pens. Others say they had their fingernails ripped off or were forced to lick filthy toilet bowls. The accounts of prison abuse in Iranís post-election crackdown have set off growing outrage among Iranians, including some prominent conservatives. More bruised corpses have been returned to families, as well as some hospital officials telling human rights workers that they have seen evidence that well over 100 protesters have died since the vote.
After careful and thoughtful observations and exchanging ideas with experts in the field, we have reached the conclusion that individual letter writing is the best way of pleading our cases to public officials. Each of these letters will have an impact. Of course, letter writing is not going to substitute online petitions, but rather complements the efforts. As you know, whenever we want to rescue a prisoner of conscious, timing is everything, which is why it is most effective to communicate in a team effort through technology to more efficiently address violations of human rights in Iran. That is why we are asking you to join us in order to launch this very mission. We realize that you have a busy schedule, but when the need arises , you will receive a petition letter that you need only to read, sign and send it electronically. Thus by being prepared and organized you will further the cause of humanity. So join us today.
