Iran Update INCLUDES IMPORTANT INFORMATION

December 5, 2009

I received this poem and it inspired me to work harder. This is not my poetry….this was a gift. I always say, I have more balls than sense…not everything has everything to do with anything …..

It’s Titled

You Decide

Darkness has fallen upon you
Like a veil worn by the unwilling bride

Peacefullness avoids your mind

Like the rising waters bring forth a flood
Soon you will have to decide….

Will you run
Or will you Hide

*I responded back….. NEITHER

    Additional Ideas from http://noreddeer.blogspot.com/

    Action in United States to Help Iran

    Action 1 in U.S.: Wear green conspicuously, then explain why in no-uncertain-terms.

    Action 2 in U.S.: Circulate confirmed information about Iranian human rights violations.

    Action 3 in U.S.: Contact your own U.S. senators, White House, and Sen. Kerry to act now to stop human rights violations in Iran.

    Sen. Kerry is Chairman of Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

    Contact your own U.S. senator. Other state senators will be slow in response. Use your vote.

    Action 4 in U.S.: Contact NGOs (Amnesty International, etc.) to act now to stop human rights violations in Iran.

    Meaningful, but non-technical ways to help Iranians online: (from http://tehranbureau.com/geeks-nongeeks-iranians-online/)

    1) Tell your Iranian friends about Psiphon:

    Spread the word to Iranians in Iran about Psiphon, an anti-filtering program that was spun off from the Citizen Lab at the University of Toronto. Ron Deibert, of of Psiphon’s organizers, says that tens of thousands of Iranians have used Psiphon since the post-election turmoil, and notes that the Iranian authorities have yet to block it. They’ve set up a special web page in Persian making it very easy for new users to gain unfiltered access to the Internet.

    2) Tell your Iranian friends about Herdict:

    There’s a new project out of the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University that allows Internet users around the world to report on the status of what websites are blocked around the world. Currently, there isn’t a whole lot of data that they’re working with — Iran is the third-most reported on country, but Herdict only has 200 reports of inaccessible sites, including Twitter, Facebook and CNN. With more people in Iran using Herdict, it could provide a better peek into what is and isn’t being blocked.

    3) If you speak Persian, translate:

    There’s tons of documents (the Herdict site included) that simply aren’t yet available in Persian. Even many of Tor’s documents have yet to be translated. So if you’ve got time to spare and are fluent in English and Persian, consider translating for these causes so that more Iranians can use these tools and get online. There’s even websites devoted to translating Persian content into English and English content into Persian.

    Readers’ Suggestions
     
    People could email/write/phone their country’s Chinese and Russian Embassies to pressure them to support UN action against Iranian repressive dictatorship.
