  • Solidarity During World Cup

    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.

  • A Flashmob in Paris

    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.

  • A Birthday Fundraiser

    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.

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.
