I will be running to support Camp Liberty residents

Published by on February 1, 2016

Kevin-LawlerMy name is Kevin Lawler and I have been an ILA supporter for approximately four years. During that time, I have been deeply moved by the plight of the residents of Camp Liberty and I was particularly distressed by the rocket attack on the camp last October.

This heightened my determination to take positive action to raise further funds to expedite the release and safe passage of the interns.

To that end, I have entered the Eastleigh 10km run on Sunday March 20th and I am seeking sponsors for this event. Please respond generously.

Thanks in anticipation of your kind support for my efforts.

PS: Attached is a photo of me resting after the Great South Run in 2015 where I ran on behalf of CAFOD, the Catholic Agency for Overseas Development

Abolish death penalty in Iran

Please Sign our Petition

Dear Secretary General of United Nations,

The number of executions is rising in Iran, journalists are being detained for doing their job and activists face cruel and degrading punishments, long prison terms and even execution. According to the most recent reports by Amnesty International and the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child, “Iran’s judiciary continues to sentence child offenders to death, and carry out their execution by hanging”. Also, on August 9th, 2016 the son of late Ayatollah Hossein Ali Montazeri, Khomeini’s designated successor in 1988, published a shocking audio tape of his father’s meeting with the “Death Commission” which summarily and extra-judicially executed tens of thousands of political prisoners held in jails across Iran. The massacre was carried out on the basis of a fatwa by the regime’s then-Supreme Leader Khomeini.

We, the undersigned, hereby urge you to take up this issue and raise it in the General Assembly in order to;

1. Put pressure on Iran to immediately halt the executions and abolish death penalty in Iran.
2. Call on all Western governments to make any improvement in economic relations with Iran contingent on its human rights record.
3. Demand in its resolution on human rights violations in Iran, to bring the perpetrators of 1988 massacre (one of the worst atrocities the post-war world has ever seen – Geoffrey Robertson-QC) to justice before an international tribunal.

Executions must stop.
