Urgent Call to Stop the Stoning of Sakineh Mohammadie Ashtiani
We call on our governments and on our civil societies to stand up actively to oppose and prevent the atrocity that is the imminent stoning of Sakineh Ashtiani, which the Iranian authorities announced will now proceed tomorrow. To be a silent witness to such an act is a travesty of all principles of humanity. Sakineh’s son and lawyer reportedly remain in detention in Iran and there are serious concerns for their safety. It is vital to speak out against this environment in which intimidation and severe abuse are endemic.
