Thank you

For the excellent Collage of his work.  He is a treasure and I am also very dissapointed at the Iranian Artists lack of support.  We all need to be vigilant and supportive. Thanks for your comment on my drawing.

Mr. Panahi, Ms. Christine St-Pierre and Ms. Pauline Marois

by Quebeqi on

It seems the regime did not appreciate that Mr. Panahi was seen with Quebec Minister of Affaires Culturelles,Christine St-Pierre and Quebec opposition leader, Pauline Marois, head of Parti Québécois.

Regime spies are alive and well in my Quebec. Take a stroll around McGill university campus, and you will see some of them. Or around our intellectuals who are supporting the Accomodements Raisonnables.

Iran has no political prisoners. No never! What political stuff?

by Anonymouse on

Motherf***ers arrest people and then say they were arrested for something else and then they show up on TV "confessing" to working for UK or USA.

Jafar Panahi is one of Iran's best filmmakers.  Here's Offside a movie he made in 2006 about women trying to go to soccer stadium for world cup qualifying.  Women are not allowed in soccer stadiums.

I hope he and his family are released soon.

Everything is sacred.
