Amnesty International Norway’s youth group is hosting a photo campaign from September 13-27 in support of the Iranian defense lawyer, Nasrin Sotoudeh, who has been imprisoned for defending women’s rights.
In January 2011, she was sentenced for having “acted against national security” and for “promoting propaganda against the system”. The original sentence of 11 years of prison has been reduced to 6 years after appeal. She has also been denied permission to practice as a lawyer for 10 years.
By sending a photo of yourself with a “Free Nasrin”-message on a poster or written in the palm of your hand, you contribute in the making of a collage which will be sent to the Iranian Secularism II embassy in Oslo, Norway. Take a picture of yourself, alone or with friends. Help spread the photo campaign to people around you and be creative in your methods. The pictures will also be posted Flickr.com for public display, before the collage is completed and sent.
We want as many photos as possible, so every contribution is appreciated. By sending your photo you support Amnesty International’s demands on Nasrin being released immediately and unconditionally. Follow these steps to take action:
1. Take a picture of yourself with a visible “Free Nasrin”-message.
2. Send you picture to email@example.com and write which country and city you are in.
3. Follow the updates on our Flickr-page, where all pictures will be posted: http://www.flickr.com/freenasrin
4. Tell other people about Nasrin’s situation and urge them to take part in this phtoto campaign as well!
PS. If anyone wants to contribute with their photo, without having it posted on Flickr.com, let us know in the email.
