Free Political Prisoners Protest

Monday at 6 o'clock until 8 o'clock in front of Tehran university in support of Freedom, there was going to be a demonstration to release the political prisoners. The Republican Guard (the Iranian Army (?) ) stepped in before much time had passed.

Eye witnesses have stated that the peaceful protestors were beaten and taken to prison. Many of them were family and friends. [read more] Is anyone going to stand up and speak out against this treatment of these people? I AM! You bet.

Where are you, oh Human Rights Groups? Where are you, President Bush, PM Tony Blair, Kofi Annan, Chirac, and every other government leader? Why is your silence killing me? Could it be because your silence IS killing others? Yes. It could. Speak up. Thank you.
