Update and Twitterstorm for Dr Noor Ali Tabandeh's Birthday

Dear Supporters,

Firstly, thank you so much for backing this campaign - together we can make a difference for Dr Noor Ali Tabandeh and the persecuted Sufis in Iran.

We’re thrilled to be climbing towards 4000 signatures, and we have recently gained backing from some important organisations including Human Rights Without Frontiers, Internationaler Gesellschaft Für Menschenrechte, Gesellschaft für bedrohte Völker (Society for Threatened Peoples) and more.

Even some political prisoners in Iran, such as Mohammad Taheri and Narges Mohammadi, have sent communication from within the prison that they wish to add their names to the petition, which shows incredible courage considering the situation they are in.

However, we still need more signatures to reach the political figures who can impact change. With that in mind there will be a Twitterstorm tomorrow night, Friday 12 October, between 6:30 - 7:30 pm (GMT), timed to coordinate with the upcoming birthday of Dr Tabandeh who turns 91 on Saturday. 

Please add your support by either retweeting IOPHR's tweets (@IOPHRpress) or adding you own with the hashtag #FreeTabandeh and link to the petition:

We appreciate anything you can do to help spread the petition further and raise awareness to the global community.

Thank you for your time!

Best wishes,


International Organisation to Preserve Human Rights
