The World Says No To Stoning

Dear friends and colleagues,

Tel Aviv will be part of a family of 100 cities around the world, which will be taking part in this campaign.

This event will take place at Dina’s Cafe, 34 Yehuda Hayamit street in Jaffa, at 20:00.

The event will include presenting the stories of
– Kurdish activist Zeinab Jalalian,
– Sakineh Mouhamadi Ashtiany,
who are two women at the imminent risk of execution without fair trial.

There are also 25 others who are waiting to be executed by stoning. Their sentence was passed down to them by the judiciary of the Islamic Republic.

The event will include speeches as well as screening of films and film clips about stoning in Iran.
Iranian – Israeli Middle East analyst Meir Javedanfar will be one of the speakers. We are arranging for other speakers as well.
