The rally will run from 12-2pm on September 23rd at Dag Hammarskjold Plaza (47th St. & 2nd Ave.) and feature Iranian/American groups each directly challenging Ahmadinejad on the surge in human rights abuses in Iran.
Organizing the event, Nazanin Afshin-Jam, an international human rights activist and former Miss World Canada, will lead off the line up of the “Wall of Shame” by asking: “Ahmadinejad why are you executing children?”
Nazanin’s actions on behalf of the children on death row in Iran began when she was told of a young girl on her namesake that was going to be executed for stabbing one of three men who attempted to rape her. Nazanin was instrumental in saving this girl and since then has been dedicated to saving more lives.
“There has been 6 children hanged this year alone in Iran and over 130 children on death row awaiting execution" said Nazanin Afshin-Jam President and co-founder of the Stop Child Executions (SCE) organization.”
“While the UN legitimizes Ahmadinejad as the leader of Iran by having the door open to him at the General Assembly, the Iranian people feel betrayed by the false representation. In face of... >>>

Gov. Palin took a stand for Iranian Womenby Anonymous on Mon Sep 22, 2008 10:10 PM PDT
Here is an excerpts of Gov. Palin remark about Iranian people women today. The only American politician who have mentioned Iranian women situation.
"Not even Iranian citizens are safe from their government's threat to those who want to live, work, and worship in peace. Politically-motivated abductions, torture, death by stoning, flogging, and amputations are just some of its state-sanctioned punishments. It is said that the measure of a country is the treatment of its most vulnerable citizens. By that standard, the Iranian government is both oppressive and barbaric. Under Ahmadinejad's rule, Iranian women are some of the most vulnerable citizens. If an Iranian woman shows too much hair in public, she risks being beaten or killed. If she walks down a public street in clothing that violates the state dress code, she could be arrested. But in the face of this harsh regime, the Iranian women have shown courage. Despite threats to their lives and their families, Iranian women have sought better treatment through the "One Million Signatures Campaign Demanding Changes to Discriminatory Laws." The authorities have reacted with predictable barbarism. Last year, women's rights activist Delaram Ali was sentenced to 20 lashes and 10 months in prison for committing the crime of "propaganda against the system." After international protests, the judiciary reduced her sentence to "only" 10 lashes and 36 months in prison and then temporarily suspended her sentence. She still faces the threat of imprisonment."
That's why we need to elect a women for the White House..

Ahmadinejad certainly is not popular with the zio-nazi groups and the like. Inside Iran he is VERY popular. That is what matters. He is president there. Look at "W" with popularity poll of less than 15% in USA and tell me who is more shameful!
what does he care?by MRX1 (not verified) on Wed Sep 17, 2008 12:22 PM PDT
islamo facists brained wash folks like Ahmadinejad do not care if million people start protesting in New York city. This is why dialogue, mialogue and that liberal panzy stuff with these folks will never work. The only language they understand is violence, pur and simple.

THE STRUGGLE CONTINUES BY Darius KADIVAR

Soon there will be many Iranians in New York. Some of them will be there to protest and some others will be there to meet Mr. Ahmadinejad and to attend the "eftari" party he will be throwing. You suggest those who are protesting to wear masks. If I were one of those who are going to "dast boosi" and attending the eftari spread I would wear a mask. Though those protesting gross violations of human rights in Iran may be identified and persecuted and their families harassed in Iran, in time those who are shaking the hands of this man would be remembered appropriately.
History has taught all of us a thing or two about how things could change.

SCE is a biased organization. Not that all what they say is wrong and lies, but most of it is. I would not use them as a source.
