Stand with the People of Iran

Mass protests are breaking out across Iran, sparked by outrage at the mounting evidence that the Ahmadinejad government has rigged and stolen Thursday's election.

Despite a growing crackdown and the banning of a mass march in Tehran today, millions of brave Iranian men and women are going to the streets crying out for democracy -- see pictures and video opposite. This is a crucial week for Iran and the world: either democracy and diplomacy triumph, or tyranny and militarism will.

Iranians are courageously calling on their leaders for democracy and justice. Let’s stand with them -- sign the emergency petition below, then spread the word:

Petition to Iranian government and world leaders:

We stand together as citizens of Iran and the world, and call for an immediate end to the crackdown on protesters and a full investigation into electoral anomolies. A free, fair and transparent election should be held. Until this is done, we call on international leaders to withhold recognition of any new government.
