I wanted to repost this bulletin I have received from a group trying to save the life of Nazanin, the young woman who is in danger of execution in Iran quite soon. If not familiar with her case, please look her up! She protected herself and a female relative from rape with a knife she carried (makes Tehran sound so pleasant already, doesn't it?), the injuries causing death to one of the men. This was self defense, and she may hang for it. Please read and forward on as time is short for her now:

"URGENT ACTIONS NEEDED: Final trial in ONE WEEK. Death sentence pending.

So many of you have asked what else can be done to help Nazanin in these final days before her final re-trial on January 10.

We will post different actions in the next few days.

1- It is important that AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE send a copy of the petition that is signed by nearly 230,000 worldwide to the highest authorities of Islamic Republic in Iran. It would be more effective if you write your own cover letter. Please ask everyone you know to email or fax the petition too.

Let's join hands and prove to the world that together we can make a difference and let's tell these officials that SELF DEFENSE IS A HUMAN RIGHT and tell them that people worldwide including nearly 230,000 who signed the petition are watching. This only will take a few minutes of your time but can save Nazanin's life. Let's make 2007 a happy year for Nazanin too.


There are three high officials to send the petition to:

Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic
Fax: 01198251 77742228
(mark "FAO the Office of His Excellency, Ayatollah al Udhma Khamenei" Salutation: Your Excellency)

Head of Judiciary of Islamic Republic
FAX: 0119821 3904986
(mark "Please forward to His Excellency Ayatollah Shahroudi")
note: This email address can be unreliable.
Salutation: Your Excellency

President of Islamic Republic
or you can email direct through his website at:
FAX: 0119821 66495880
Salutation: Your Excellency

Thank you"
