  1. Good work everyone... this has to stop... Sign petition or turn up to demo! If it was your mother or father being stoned think how you would feel? I woke to this story via email from a blog while the national press had front page news 'cherly cole/tweedy' has malaria! So what? Why do stories like Sakine's take so much effort to even get noticed in main press. Let's not lose the pressure on Iran to stop this... Send a message to let them know the WHOLE world is watching with a big eye and we care. Do your bit, not matter how small, it does make a diference. xxx

  2. This is the 21st century, we are not animals that get exhilarated by killing.

    Sakineh, we are with you all the way!
