Help Save Humanity's Cultural Heritage sign now

The Islamic Republic of Iran, which holds in great contempt any non-Islamic belief or heritage, has embarked on destroying the archeological sites of Pasargad and Persepolis -- some of humanity's most prized cultural heritage. The heinous destruction of the two Buddha statues by Afghanistan's Taliban, pales in comparison to the present barbaric designs of the Islamic Republic.

Pasargad and Persepolis are more than a mere collection of ancient structures. They are embodiments of humanity's historical respect for liberty and tolerance of diversity. Among the sites to be destroyed is the tomb of the renowned Archimedean king, Cyrus the Great, of 2500 years ago who is recognized as the early champion of human rights. It was this great trailblazer of human rights who freed the Jews from captivity and promoted freedom of culture, religion and beliefs in the vast empire under his rule.

The construction of the Sivand Dam on the Polvar River that will submerge this priceless historical and cultural site began in 1992 without consultation with or the knowledge of the Cultural Heritage Organization officials. The dam is slated for operation in early 2006. Once in operation, the dam will eventually flood the entire Tang-e Bolaghi (Bolaghi Gorge) mountain pass and the surrounding region. As a result some 8 kilometers of the Bolaghi Gorge will be submerged and lost forever. The experts of ICHCTO and the Pars-e Pasargad Research Foundation have identified more than 100 archeological sites that are threatened with permanent destruction.

It is humanity's most precious heritage -- yours and your descendents' heritage -- of great value which is in dire need of your support. Generations of humanity will bemoan the loss of this living testimony to the nobility of mankind. The destructive hand of the Islamic zealots must be stayed. Stand up, raise your voice and do what is in your power to preserve what is rightfully yours.

    The study of the history of the Western world always includes the Persian Empire as one of the earliest important civilizations, one that helped to form the basis of our own civilization. The idea of losing this site of antiquity is outrageous.
