Mehdi Khodaee was sentenced to 7 years in prison for “propaganda against the system” for his work as a board member of Human Rights Activists in Iran. 3,289 supporters worldwide demanded Mehdi’s release. As of August 2015, he is back with his family.
Habibolah Latiﬁ , a student activist and member of the Kurdish Worker’s party, was sentenced to be executed on December 26, 2010. The holiday season was chosen to minimize international attention. A few days before the execution, United for Iran ran a rapid-response campaign. Over 82,300 messages were sent in support of Latiﬁ within 24 hours and his death sentence was suspended.
On opening day of the 2010 World Cup, a group of supporters in Johannesburg wanted to highlight the one-year anniversary of the 2009 uprising. They worked out all the logistics on the ground and we helped pay for the ads in the local paper and on buses. Their campaign was a success – and a lot of fun. Check out video from the day.
Having a party? Do it for Iran. One of our supporters, recently threw a birthday party and asked friends to donate to United for Iran instead of giving gifts. It was easy to do, raised nearly $2,000 and, more importantly, was a simple way to talk to new people about what’s happening in Iran and how to get involved.
Arache and Behi are siblings and United for Iran allies. On June 12, 2011, they organized a ﬂashmob in a Paris metro station to mark the two year anniversary of Iran’s disputed election and demonstrate sustained international support for the Iranian people. United for Iran supported the event, including hiring a videographer. Video of the Paris ﬂashmob has been viewed nearly 90,000 times.
The time goes by faster than you imagine. It was exactly 6 years ago today that I got arrested for the second time. Those days Iran was blanketed with massive street protests against the presidential election. I was jailed in a six-by-nine foot cell. There was no pen or paper, no desk or mirror. There is no clock in solitary conﬁnement, and the warden conﬁscated my watch. Read more.
