On June 20 2009 and afterwards, the Iranian security forces used snipers to shoot

down over 200 unarmed protesters calling for democracy. Masses of Basij militia

brutally assaulted the people on the streets, up to last Friday’s events in the Tehran

cemetery and city square. Many of those arrested have also been tortured to death

in detention, and some bodies have been recovered.

This solemn event in Martin Place is part of a world-wide wave of emotion,

condolence and protest in the Iranian community and through the entire global

democratic community.

Honour, respect and remember Neda Agh Soltan, Kianoosh Asa, Sohrab

Ahrabi, Mehrdad Mohammadi and hundreds more…

From July 28, over 2000 heavily armed Iraqi police have attacked over 3,500 Iranian

democracy activists living at Ashraf City, Iraq – at the request of the Iranian

Supreme Leader. Twelve have been killed, including six by sniper or machine gun

fire, and over 500 injured by violent bashing with clubs.
