ROLLING GLOBAL PROTESTS are underway to protest Canadian Permanent Resident Saeed Malekpour’s death sentence and imminent execution.

Farah N. Mawani, founder of Farahway Global, and co-founder of Free the Hikers, spoke at a protest outside the Iranian Embassy in Ottawa, Canada on February 4, 2012: “I support the campaign to FREE Saeed and urge you to do the same and speak out loud and clear against his imminent execution. Like Josh, Shane and Sarah, he needs us to be the voice that is being stolen from him. He needs us to fight for the human rights he is being denied.  He needs us to fight for his life. The life that will be taken from him if we are silent.”

Please join the call to save Saeed from execution by attending a protest near you and spreading the word about the ongoing protests and urging others to attend. If there is no protest near you, please organize one with the support of the Saeed Malekpour Campaign and Farahway Global. Contact us and we will provide you with advice, guidance and support.
