Save Nazanin

Save Nazanin.
Update: Nazanin's case will be reviewed by the [Iranian] Supreme Court this week. If the death sentence is upheld, she may be executed very shortly after. Read more

This website was created to spread information about the 18-year old Iranian girl Nazanin Mahabad Fatehi, who has been sentenced to death by hanging. Nazanin`s "crime" was killing a man who ambushed and tried to rape her. Please take a few moments to read about her case and what you can do to stop the execution and save Nazanin`s life.
The petition is here. There are over 140,000 signatures. There's no harm in signing it, but the real and lasting solution involves a great deal of killing.

What else to do?
If the death sentence is upheld, the execution may be carried out shortly after. This means that we may only have one or two weeks left to save Nazanin. Based on past cases, it is known that if the Iranian government receives official letters from the UN, EU, USA or big and influencial international bodies, they often do not go ahead with the execution. We need the most amount of public outcry this week.
