End flogging in Iran

This petition had 153 supporters

Flogging is a cruel and inhuman punishment that has no place in today's justice system.

But under Iranian law, a flogging sentence can be handed down simply to punish people who've criticised the authorities.

The burning wounds from judicial flogging are often too much for victims to bear. The lashes sometimes leave people unable to walk unaided.

Add your name and stand with all those in Iran facing flogging - some for merely peacefully expressing their beliefs and opinions. We’ll deliver your signature directly to the Iranian Embassy in Canberra.
