Iranian Alert - June 7, 2005 - The Iran is illegally setting up voting booths in the US
Regime Change Iran ^ | 6.7.2005 | DoctorZin

The Iranian Government is setting up voting booths in the US

The Interests Section of the Islamic Republic of Iran has launched a U.S. based website (in Persian) to encourage Iranians to vote, June 17th, here in the U.S. The site includes a pdf file with a listing of the cities and states they will be hosting voting centers. The site also includes an 800#: 800-899-4023 where people can be told the exact locations of the voting centers.

A few days ago, before being shutdown, SMCCDI posted the following:

A group of Iranian secularist activists have protested against the illegal holding of Islamic regime's ballot boxes on the US soil. Copies of a joint letter, endorsed by Roxanne Gangi of IRIC, Roozbeh Farahanipoor of Marzeporgohar organization and Aryo B. Pirouznia of SMCCDI, have been sent to the US State Department, President Bush's Office, the US Department of Homeland Security and the FBI.

Legitimate concerns are existing among members of the Iranian Diaspora and well aware Americans on the possible consequences of any type of free move granted to agents of a regime notorious for its sponsorship of terrorism and the murder of Iranian dissidents. ...

Officials of the Islamic Republic in New York, at the United Nations and in Washington DC (at Iran’s Interest Section in the embassy of Pakistan) are prohibited to travel beyond a certain limited area (in New York no more than 12 miles and in Washington not past 25 miles of their offices).

According to the Islamic Republic’s laws any ballot box has to be monitored by an IRI official representative. Therefore it is both against the United States regulations and the Islamic Republic of Iran’s laws for any such voting stations to be set up throughout the United States.
You can read their joint letter here.

Four years ago, Iranian opposition groups located the voting centers in Los Angeles and with the help of the LAPD, shut them down.

I heard they do it every time there is an election!

Why should the US officials let them in if there is no diplomatic relation between the US and Mullahs?

SMCCDI Website back online!

I just heard from Aryo Pirouznia, director of the Student Movement Coordinating Committee for Democracy in Iran (SMCCDI) he told me that their website is back online.

Just as mysteriously as it went down, the web host decided to put it back up.

We will post more on this later.

We want to thank everyone that responded to our call form help.

I believe, collectively our efforts made the difference.

Statement of political prisoners


http://etesabghaza.blogfa.com/




We, the political prisoners, are going to start a strike on June 10th.

Our reasons and demands:

1. In protest of the exhibited, conditioned and undemocratic presidential elections in the Islamic Republic of Iran.

2. In protest of humanrights violations by the Islamic Republic of Iran.

3. Freedom of expression and publication of one's opinion.

4. An unrestricted and unconditioned release of all the political and idiological prisoners.

We invite every freedom-lover, specially the students, to protest against this exhibited elections and show support for the political prisoners hungerstrike, by holding the Persian 3 coloured flag and flowers with the colours of the flag (green, white and red).

And once again we invite every persian to participate in this urban protest by boycotting the elections, by their civil disobedients, by working less and by participating in peaceful protest meetings.

We suggest to make June 17th (=election day) the "National hunger strike" day.

We request all members of independent press and media to support this movement from June 10th until July 9th.

Undersigned,

the political prisoners:

· Ahmad Batebi

· Hojjat Bakhtiari

· Mostafa Joukar

· Behrouz Javid Tehrani

· Dr. Farzad Hamidi

· Amir Heshmat Saran

· Heshmatollah Tabarzadi

· Omid Abbasgholinezhad

· Amir Abbas Fakhravar

· Saied Kamali

· Fattah Madani

· Akbar Mohammadi

· Manouchehr Mohammadi

· Shahram Hasanjani

Also a group of political prisoners who are in Rajaee Shahr of Karaj prison, who have already started their hunger strike since May 30th:

· Bina Darabzand

· Arzhang Davoodi

· Amir Saran

· Mehrdad Lohrasbi

· Valiollah Feyzmahdavi

· Khaled Hardani
