INTERNATIONAL LABOUR-IRAN
SAVE FARZAD KAMANGAR:
The following just arrived this morning from the Labour Start online solidarity site. To say the least this is short notice. Also, when Molly attempted to send her letter the attempt came back "internal server error...try again later". Hopefully others will have better luck than I have had.

Iranian trade unionist to be hanged today - your urgent help needed:‏
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. Send off your message to the Iranian president: http://www.labourstart.org/farzad
Pass on the this message to everyone you know who might support this campaign.
We may only have a few hours left.
I know that I can count on your help. Thank you.

I had the same problem at Labour Start. Go to Education International's page on Fazad: http://www.ei-ie.org/en/news/show.php?id=917&theme=rights&country=iran and work from there.

Or write your own letter directly to President
Ahmadinejad at atdr-ahmadinejad@president.ir or info@leader.ir or info@dadgostary-tehran.ir.

I've posted a sample letter at http://paulsgraham.ca/index.php/2008/11/26/act-now-to-save-the-life-of-farzad-kamangar/
