Global Electronic Sit-in In Solidarity with Iranians Protesting
against the Rigged 2009 Presidential Elections – 18June2009 – ongoing
until further notice
Please join us in this urgent action in solidarity with the large
numbers of Iranian people who have been taking to the streets since
June 13, 2009 to claim their right to free and fair elections. This
electronic sit-in targets the websites of the Guardian Council, the
Interior Ministry, the Presidency of Iran, Ali Khamenei,
Hashemi-Rafsanjani, Ahmadinejad and the Islamic Republic of Iran
* Ahmadinejad must resign immediately.
* All political prisoners, including all of the people who have been
arrested on political charges in the past several days must be
* A new and independently monitored election must be held.
* The list of presidential candidates must be open and free of
interference by the Guardian Council.
This action is NOT in support of Mir Hossein Mousavi or other
presidential candidates in the 12 June 2009 election. The race for
presidential candidacy was itself fundamentally flawed. The Guardian
Council, a clerical body overseeing the governance of Iran, rejected
90% of eligible candidates the right to run in the election, leaving
only 4 candidates on the list, all of whom are connected to one or
other of the factions of the ruling theocracy and should equally be
held accountable for the atrocities committed against Iranians over
the past 30 years and for the countless social and economic ills that
are inflicting the country.
This action is in solidarity with hundreds of thousands of Iranians
from diverse social groups and classes who, since Saturday, 13 June
2009, have been defying the official ban on mass rally and taken to
the streets in many cities across Iran to voice their anger at seeing
their right as citizens to have their votes counted trampled upon in
a rigged election.
