Response To 44 Nobel Laureates Open Letter Regarding Brave Men and Women of Iran sign now

We, the undersigned, would like to thank the 44 Nobel Laureates for showing courage when the leaders of the free world stood ear-splitting silent. Your August 3rd Open Letter titled Do not feel abandoned. Do not lose hope was an inspiration to millions of Iranians during a critical time when most of the G8 and UN turned a def ear with no real actions. Your unilateral action will not be forgotten.

IRAN OPEN LETTER: AN OPEN LETTER

to All the dissidents --
the brave men and women of Iran:
Do not feel abandoned.
Do not lose hope.

The world knows that its physical and spiritual survival is linked to yours.

We, the undersigned Nobel Laureates, strongly condemn the flagrant human rights violations in the wake of the recent presidential election in Iran.

We deplore the violent and oppressive tactics the current regime is using to dissuade protestors from expressing their right to free speech. Your election was shamelessly tampered with and your human rights disregarded. We are outraged by your governments denial of basic liberties to its people, such as detaining large groups of professors, students and innocent civilians, and denying proper funeral services to victims of its violence. These events, and the decision to ban all international media from covering these events, are blatant violations of the democratic principles your government claims to uphold.

We are well aware that throughout the long and glorious history of the Iranian civilization, your ancestors have often stood firmly against both interference from without and repression from within. Today, once again, you are fighting for a just cause.

We urge President Obama and the worlds political leadership to support, with all means at their disposal, the people of Iran, who deserve to have their votes counted, their voices heard, and their dignity respected.
