The above photo was taken by Pars News photographer who was invited to the torture parade in order to photograph and disseminate the images all across Iran and the world. The images at the top show a young man with Marlon Brando looks and his free spirit shown by his Colombia football jersey and long hair, being pushed, thrown on the ground and his forehead getting bloodied in order to force him to put a device in his mouth which is used in toilets to wash excrement. The image below shows a clean cut man with western style shirt and trousers being subject to similar humiliations in front of photojournalists and the public on the streets of Tehran. There are people in the west who still say: “Why do the Iranian people not revolt against the regime?” I want to ask these people: When will western oil companies stop buying oil from the Ayatollahs and when will your governments stop making deals under the table with the Islamic regime?
A very interesting question.

These photos were taken the same day these others were -as a matter of fact, both of them were already in some of those photos-.
There is something I do not agree with the post though: a lot of people is not going to see them. Firstly, not all people reads internet. Secondly, if you are interested in other subjects you’re not going to see it either. And lastly, there are people that only get informed by TV, and I can tell you that in Spanish TVs these horrible acts by Iranian Government are not shown.
Sempre in Iran è stato affisso un cartello che esplicitamente invita le donne iraniane a non vestire in maniera occidentale, e lo fa spiegando che le donne che non portano gli abiti tradizionali sono coloro le quali vanno in cerca di malintenzionati. Ecco di seguito la traduzione dell’ammonimento che si legge sul cartello (che porta come intestazione “Abbigliamento e personalità”) a fianco al disegno di due ragazze simil-occidentali: <<E’ colpa nostra se incontriamo problemi per strada, stiamo cercando problemi>>. La teocrazia persiana ammette il comportamento animalesco di qualche ometto che perde l’autocontrollo di fronte a una ragazza che abbia il collo scoperto? Mi sembra una concezione un po’ limitata di libertà, o quanto meno a senso unico.
There is in Iran a poster where the Iranian women are told not to dress themselves Western-style, and it is done by telling them that if they do, they are going to be the subject of bad intention people. The poster reads: “We are the culprits if we find problems in the street, we are seeking for them“. This is the poster:
More about the Women in the Islamic Republic in Iran by velvethammer.
Disregarding their international commitments, the mullahs have shown no qualms about executing women of all ages; from 13-year-old adolescents like Fatemeh Mesbah, Maryam Ghodsi-Maab, 16; Ezzat Mesbah, 15; Mojgan Jamshidi, 14; and Nooshin Emami, 16; to 70-year-old grandmothers like Ettesamossadat Karbasi; Arasteh Qolivand, 56; Soqra Davari, 54; and Massoumeh Shadmani, 50.
Mina Mohammadian was executed on February 29, 1987, on political charges. She was held in solitary confinement for eleven months prior to her execution. During that period, she went through forty interrogation sessions, during which she was subjected to the most horrendous tortures. She was repeatedly raped by the regime’s Guards. She was 22 at the time of her execution.
Women political prisoners are kept in so-called “residential units” (cement cages, 50 cm square), with their heads cramped down onto their knees, for months at a time. They are beaten regularly, up to 50 times a day. Another common torture of women political prisoners, besides systematic flogging, is suspension for hours from the ceiling by the hands, or upside down, by the feet. In some cases, the torture leads first to paralysis, then to the woman’s death. Nahid Shahrokhi- Mahalati, a 22-year-old teacher, was suspended from the ceiling for a prolonged period. She died under torture.
I have no words. And then Ahmadinejad says that women’s rights are respected… What a bastard!! Human Rights are all crashed in Iran, whether they are women’s or men’s…
And the firms, …
