Which Side Are You On?

From the American scab organization Codepink, currently sucking up to the theocratic-fascist regime in Tehran, on a goodwill mission conceived a couple of months ago by 125 leaders of the American "peace movement" and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad:

"So when a policeman approached us, asked where we were staying and said, 'Come with me,' we wondered if we might be getting arrested for Jodie’s bare ankles. He was smiling, though, so we followed him to the police car. It turns out that he and his partner, who was sitting in the police car, were just really nice guys who wanted to give us a lift back to the hotel. We joked around with them, took a photo of me in the police car, and rode back to the hotel in style!"

An hour ago I received this email from Eric Lee at LabourStart:

"This morning I received news that jailed Iranian teacher union activist Farzad Kamangar may be hanged within the next few hours. According to the Education International, he has been taken from his cell in Tehran's Evin prison in preparation for execution. The guards have told him he is about to be executed and they are making fun of him, calling him a martyr. We need your help and we need it right now."

The LabourStart website must be swamped with responses because it's been down for the last 15 minutes, but you can send letters of protest to the Iranian regime via the International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran, here, in less time than it takes to listen to the song in the video below. So make up your damn minds:

From Labour Start:

Dear friends,

As you know, LabourStart has been offline now for more than a week. This has been caused by a major outage at our Internet Service Provider here in the UK.

As a result of this, not only was LabourStart offline, but we received no email. And the more than 50 labour websites which use our Labour NewsWire service were receiving error messages instead of the latest labour news.

Furthermore, some two dozen labour and left websites which we had helped to set up were cut off, as was the email to the organizations.

In other words, it has been a terrible week.

We are now back online and are taking the necessary steps to ensure that this never happens again.

I apologize to all of you and thank you for the many messages of support which did reach us.

Eric Lee

It has happened again.

Our great minds are working alike on this see here
