In light of the upcoming rallies organized by Iranian opposition in a show of support for the peaceful protesters in Egypt and Tunisia (25 Bahman, Feb 14), activists worldwide – from Tokyo to Berlin to Washington DC – are gathering to show their solidarity. Many are using this time to highlight the execution binge in Iran, while urging the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) to appoint a human rights monitor on Iran. Activists around the world are also working to “Keep Iran’s Hearts Beating” by drawing attention to Iran’s execution rate (1 execution every 8 hours) and by urging the IRI to:

  1. Institute an immediate moratorium on all executions;
  2. Conduct independent reviews of pending death penalty cases; and
  3. Abolish the death penalty all together.

A gallery of worldwide support for the Iranian people is below.
