Join to Save Ebrahim Hamidi from hanging

For help with writing to your MP, you can download a generic letter here.

As you may (or not) know, a young Iranian boy of 18 years is facing a death by hanging for being accused of sexual assault by a fellow man. Ebrahim Hamidi’s fate hang in the balance as I write this. Although the Supreme Court of Iran has ordered a re-examination of his case twice, the regional branch still holds on and very keen to hang him.

Regardless of his accuser confessing to lying and withdrawing his accusation, it is
clear now that homophobia is the key issue in this case.

We join all other good citizens of the world to call on the Iranian government to halt this evil.
Ebrahim could be hanged any time without notice. His solicitor has gone into hiding due to harrasment and threats from the local authority. It is the same solicitor who brought the case of Sakineh Ashtiani to the attention of the world recently; you will agree with me that the authorities are not finding his zeal for fairness and justice a joke.

Please join in this fight to save the life of a young man for his right-to-life. No man should take life because man does not give life.

How you can help
Please write to your local political representative(MP, Senator, Governor, Councillor, State Senators, Local Chief, MEP, Assembly member, etc) asking them to make a representation to the government in your country to request the government of Iran to stop this capital punishment. Also you can write to the Iranian Ambassador in your country to express your concern.
