Canada ‘deplores’ Iran’s appointment to UN women’s rights panel.
I missed this report in May but noticed a reference to it in an article about Sakineh. The leader of Iran likes to go to the United Nations and give his demented speeches. Iran is a country, and I suppose its leader has a right to go to the UN, but for the Assembly to elect Iran, a country in which women are no more than chattels and in which they are subjugated to torture, lashing and stoning, is reprehensible. Our government has spoken out against this travesty. I hope our representative holds Iran accountable at every available opportunity.
Remember Sakineh. Please sign the petition at http://freesakineh.org/
