STOP CRACKDOWNS ON IRANIAN PEOPLE
WHERE: Outside Chinese embassies and consulates including Washington D.C., Chicago, San Francisco, and Houston in US and beyond (other cities are expected to be added)
WHEN: Friday, February 5th, 11:30 am - 1:30 pm
To All Friends of the Iranian People, Spread the Word:
China is supporting Ahmadinejad's crackdown against the Iranian people, most recently by arming the Basij with anti-riot equipment and crowd control vehicles. These Chinese arms pose a lethal threat to the millions of Iranians who plan to protest for freedom and democracy in Iran on February 11th.
By supporting Ahmadinejad's coup against the Iranian people, China is banking on profiting from the triumph of tyranny and terror over freedom and democracy in Iran. Instead of defending the Iranian people in their call for free and fair elections, China's mouthpiece, the People's Daily, is blaming social media for the Iranian people's protests against electoral fraud, prisoner abuse, and political violence.
The Islamic Republic has offered China a 25 year contract for 110 million metric tons of liquefied natural gas, estimated at over 100 billion dollars. In exchange for mortgaging Iran's gas and oil fields to China, Ahmadinejad uses these profits to fund the Basij militia-a military and economic mafia attacking the Iranian people, culture and economy in the name of religion.
Let us lend the Iranian people our strength in their struggle for freedom and justice, dignity and humanity. Let us prove China wrong.
Millions risk losing their lives, freedoms, jobs and security because China subsidizes terror and tyranny in Iran to export products made from cheap oil. It is time for China to stop playing a double game: burying the United States in debt to finance a war on terror it perpetuates by shielding Ahmadinejad from the devastating consequences of a genocidal domestic and foreign policy that threatens the security and stability of Iran and its neighbors.
We invite our friends around the world to demonstrate their solidarity with the Iranian people by demanding that the Chinese government:
If China is a true friend of the Iranian people and Islamic world, then it must join the Iranian people and the international community in calling for:
China is betraying its own tradition and culture as an ancient Asian civilization, its own prosperity as an economic power, and its own security as a nuclear power by discounting the life of Iran 's youth to profit from their death.
Whether it is in the Sudan , Zimbabwe , Burma or Iran , China cannot insure its own prosperity and security by preying upon the corpse of enslaved populations and vulnerable nations. Such predatory forms of capitalism divest China 's economy and currency from sanctity and security.
China risks damaging its reputation in Iran, the Islamic world and the international community for the privilege of selling cheap products contaminated with the price of Neda's flesh and blood.
We invite-and expect-China to use its tremendous lobbying power and international influence for the benefit of the Iranian people rather than Ahmadinejad's thugs.
The true gift Iranians have always offered their friends and neighbors is their unflinching faith in the sanctity of love and life. Chinese leaders should recognize that it is the good faith of the Iranian people-and not the corruption and violence of Ahmadinejad and Khamenei's bogus republic and religion-that is the sacred rock upon which China can secure its long-term future.
The Iranian people's wealth flows through their heart, not their death.
