On the Cologne Cathedral plate with the people in Iran show on Saturday, December 19 passers-by can people in the Iran with your smile into the camera, that we look to the West exactly on your life circumstances solidarity. In the West, we solidarity with people in the Iran, advocating freedom and civil society development. When the Government releases their violent Kettenhunde on peaceful demonstrators and people who stand up for your rights, we look closely and raise our voices. “A face for freedom” will draw attention together with Amnesty’s Germany on the threatening situation of human rights in the Iran. After several actions took place in Holland and Belgium, the action comes after Germany. Pedestrians are asked to be photographed. A poster with many faces, which uphold the freedom arises from the photos.
The poster will be published on Web pages that can be read from the Iran. For example the page, the Persian Edition daily up to 70,000 readers looking for. The English and French editions make it after all up to 3,000 readers daily. The aim of the action is the Iran Government to halt in their violent suppression of various civil society groups: the persecution, harassment, torture and destruction directed against religious minorities, free trade unions, human rights activists, women’s rights activists to ethnic minorities. Those who fit the specific ideology of the Iranian State, which no tracks not in the tight corset and possibly raise their voice, be addressed specifically.
The Solidaritatskomittee for the rights of Dervishes and students in the Iran focuses on support for these two groups, as afraid of the regime the most before the minds of these two groupings. Overall, both social groups consist of about 10 million people. She makes dangerous for the ideologues to question their great numbers and the ability of these groupings, the ideology of the regime. As a result, these groupings are exposed also the toughest attacks of hard-liners in the Iran. “A face for freedom” actions continue as long until the power elite stops with their purges, because the whole world with the finger on it shows and speaks the people in East and West about this inhuman practice in the Iran. You can keep your face on the Cologne Cathedral plate in the camera. The action takes place between 12:00 and 15:00 instead. Bring your friends and neighbors. The people on the streets in Iran, which peacefully advocating for freedom, will be pleased. Helmut N. fork
