The Iran Disclosure Project, which was launched on January 12, 2010, is a UANI initiative to call on companies to end their business in Iran and to identify publicly-traded companies that have failed to disclose to investors the legal and financial peril associated with their business dealings in Iran.
One of the Iranian regime’s preferred methods of execution is public hanging from a construction crane. As Iran sets a blistering pace of executions in the first months of 2011 (the International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran has said the regime is on an „execution binge“), this abhorrent method of public execution and the companies that facilitate it deserve attention. Since the New Year, according to the International Campaign For Abolishing the Death Penalty in Iran,more than 132 executions have taken place.

Mother of Mohammad & Abdollah Fathi Calls for Campaign against Execution in Iran | پیام مهوش علاسوندی مادر عبداله و محمد فتحی علیه اعدام ها در ایرا
In the name of Humanity and Freedom. I am Mahvash Fathi, the mother of Mohammad and Abdollah Fathi, who were recently executed at the hands of the [Iranian] regime’s executioners. In the wake of the anniversary of the mass murders of the 1980s and, in particular, June 20th and the mass executions of 1988, and the continuation of executions as late as today, I am inviting all families who have lost their loved ones – their children, spouses, brothers, and sisters – to executions to join me in a protest against these executions.
I’m also asking all freedom-loving people of the world, wherever they may be, to declare June 20 – 28 as days to declare “No to Execution.” By organizing and demonstrating their opposition to execution throughout this week to condemn this inhumane act – which is government-sponsored murder, born of stone-age thoughts aimed at annihilating the opposition so they can continue with their power-hungry dictatorial rule, shameful existence, and plundering of the national wealth of whatever country they’re in charge of – I’m hoping that this act, repeated every year on its anniversary, with the aid of aware and awakened individuals, will mark the beginning of a movement and the arrival of a day when we no longer have to witness such inhumane acts, and we live, instead, in a humane world free of executions.
I’m hoping for that day.
Again, this is Mahvash Fathi, the mother of Mohammad and Abdollah Fathi.
