What you can do to help the Iranian dissident movement.


There are many Iranians and non-Iranians alike who are not associated with any formal political organizations, but who nevertheless want to do something more concrete then simply checking the news and debating politics with their freinds and family. If you are one of those people, here is what you can do:

In 2004, Republican Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen proposed a bill called the Iran Freedom Support Act. The purpose of the act is two-fold. First, it tightens and hopefully corrects the flaws of the Iran-Lybia Sanctions act. Second, it provides substantial funding to organizations that are dedicated to a free and democratic Iran. Furthermore, it only makes these funds available to those organizations that refute terrorism (sorry MKO). This funding is desperately needed in order to purchase the tools we need to spread the message of democracy and freedom in Iran. The bill has already been approved by a congressional committee, but we need your help to have it approved by Congress.

The best thing about having a free and fair democracy is that Congressional representatives in both houses will listen if you make your voice heard. Join us in sending your support to your congressional representatives. Get the contact information here.

Remember, the congress-men and -women that you contact do not have to be from your area. The more people you contact the better! You don't even have to be American. U.S. foreign policy is increasingly in the global spotlight and I can assure you that politicians want to know what the international community thinks. If we can get this bill enacted into law the Islamic Regime in Iran will become even weaker.

Help us help Iran.
