Supporters of Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, the Iranian woman facing death by stoning, have organised a London protest for her this Saturday:

We, all supporters of Sakineh and opposers of torture, call you to action. A protest will take place at 12pm midday 2:00pm September 18 at Hyde Park Corner Trafalgar Square, North Terrace (opposite the National Gallery) in London. Please join us, make your own banners, posters, bring your cameras and video cameras. Spread the word and let’s maintain the incredible momentum this campaign has created to keep pressuring the Iranian authorities to back down.

Update: The protest will now be in Trafalgar Square, North Terrace (opposite the National Gallery), at 2:00pm to 3:30pm.

    Absolutely

    Apologies for this but the protest organisers have had issues with a protest at Hyde Park so have changed the venue.

    New venue:

    Trafalgar Square, North Terrace
    (outside the National Gallery)

    2:00-3:30pm

    Thanks Shreen.

    Rumbold: is it possible to edit the original post to reflect the change of venue, as people may miss my later comment?

    Edit: you’ve changed it now, thankyou. :)

    Sorry I won’t be able to make it but anyone stuck for an idea for a banner slogan:

    ‘Don’t stone, get stoned’
