This today at the New Humanist:
As has been widely reported in the press (it’s the cover story of today’s Times), a 43-year-old Iranian woman, Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, faces being stoned to death for conducting “illicit relationship outside marriage”, a “crime” which she denies and for which she has already received 99 lashes. . . .
You can help by calling on the Iranian government to release Ashtiani, and end the use of the barbaric medieval “punishment” of stoning. There are various online petitions gathering thousands of signatures – the Times mention this and this in today’s paper, while the Huffington Post website has been promoting this.
Visit the above sites and, if you have a blog yourself, paste this information into a post and pass the word along. Let’s try to save this unfortunate person.
