We have an Iranian Freeper that needs our help.
We first met in the summer of 2003 when I was reporting on the protests inside of Iran (Iranian Alert Daily Threads). This young man kept us on FR informed by sending me on the spot reports at risk to his life about these protests, which I posted for him.
After the protests died down, he would send messages trying to educate Americans and those in the west about what the average Iranian thinks of America and what kind of support the people of Iran need to see a regime change take place in his country.
Well, this friend of ours was forced to go underground a month ago. The Iranian regime discovered that he had passed information to our government. As a result, for the past month the regime has been hunting him. He had to keep on the move every few hours. He was nearly captured several times. He struggled with depression, health and fear. It was a horrifying situation. I tried to encourage him to the best of my ability.
After many weeks he was finally able to get help and sneak out of the country.
But now he could use some help from the Freeper community.
We need to ensure that when he finally gets to a US embassy that they will help him, not merely refer him the UN refugee program.
We are asking any Freepers that have contacts in the administration or the state department to please contact us. We are seeking a way to help him get asylum.
He risked his life for us; the least we can do is help him.
If you have a ping list, please ping this thread to your ping list. There must be someone on FR that can help us.
Thanks in advance,
DoctorZin and our Iranian Freeper
PS Our Iranian Freeper still has family in Iran so we have to limit what we are saying on this thread. But I can give much more detailed information to contacts in our government. Thanks.
One Mullah, One Vote. Bump
Doing my part.
Doc, I can't tell you how I wish I had any kind of contact anywhere who could help, but I don't. God be with this brave soul.
Ping for Iranian freedom.
I think this student needs our prayers...
Ping for help...If anyone has any contacts at State please get in touch with Dr. ZIn
Be careful what you write here. The Iranian gov is reading everything on FR that is related to Iran, so do not post any real time information or anything that might compromise anything.
People should contact DrZin thru mail
But thanks for the reminder.
