Arts United 4 Iran

In celebration of the United Nations’ International Human Rights Day, on Saturday December 12, 2009 United4Iran will host Arts United 4 Iran, a day devoted to worldwide displays of musical, visual, and performing arts highlighting the issues of human rights in Iran. This is a non-partisan event focusing on human and civil rights in solidarity with the people of Iran.

Musicians, performers, artists, writers, and concerned citizens will use Arts United 4 Iran as a medium to express their solidarity with the Iranian people and artists’ struggle for human and civil rights. Art is a universal expression that connects humanity across time and space and it has been the voice of justice, peace and rights throughout time. Currently many brave artists in Iran are speaking up to demand basic rights and we need to support them.

Letter to the UN, October 2009 regarding Safar Angoti
authored by:

International Committee Against Execution

Safar Angoti who committed a crime when he was 17 years old will be executed in public tomorrow by Islamic Republic of Iran.

Safar is the fourth juvenile offenders who will be executed this year despite the fact that Islamic Republic of Iran is a signatory to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights which stipulates that members cannot execute convicts found guilty of committing crimes as minors. The imposition of the death penalty for juvenile offenders represents the ultimate rejection of the International law.

We urgently request the international community to swiftly act and pressure the Islamic Republic of Iran Supreme Court to abolish the practice of executing juvenile offenders.
