JIDF Joins over 100 Organizations to Stand for Freedom in Iran


The JIDF is proud to announce that we have joined over 100 organizations to Stand for Freedom in Iran.

We're calling for thousands to rally at the United Nations on Thursday, September 24. Stand for Freedom in Iran calls for:

  • Freedom of assembly, freedom of expression and freedom of the press
  • Immediate cessation of human rights abuses, the release of demonstrators from prisons and protection for minority communities
  • Prosecution of those responsible for the murder of Neda Agha-Soltan and the many other victims engaged in the recent protests
  • Full compliance and cooperation by Iran with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and Security Council resolutions including an end to all uranium enrichment in Iran
  • End to incitement to genocide and support for terrorism
Here is the official website for the campaign.
