The government of Iran has violently cracked down on the wave of protesters who have taken to the streets since June 13th to protest the contested results of the country's recent presidential election.
Up to 1 million people poured into the streets early this week in the largest public demonstrations of opposition that country has seen in three decades. In response, police have beaten large numbers of people and several protesters have been fatally shot.
Iranian authorities have meanwhile taken aggressive measures to stem the flow of information both inside and outside of the country about the widespread unrest.
We need to ensure that those at the highest echelons of power in Iran are aware that, despite their best efforts at concealing their bloody crackdown, the global community is monitoring their every move.
Help us send the vital message today to Iran's Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, that we refuse to remain silent when authorities use bloody violence to crush dissent and deny Iranian citizens their freedom of speech and association.
