9th of July (18 e TIR) demo in London

Please join us outside Iranian embassy from 5:30 pm, in commemoration of the 10th anniversary of Iranian students protests on 9th of July (18 e Tir)

10 Years ago the protests were triggered off after closure of "Salam" newspaper and introduction of university fees. The students had occupied the Universities in Tehran and elsewhere, where their main slogan was: "Azaadi e Andisheh - Hamisheh Hasmiheh" - Freedom of Tought , forever forever. The students were brutallu murdered by the members of Sepah, Basij and Plain Clothes police(Lebas shakhsi) in their dormitories. Many students disappeared and were discovered, much later among Evin prisoners. Many were not disqualified from studying. Many members of student union were pressurized, threatened and jailed every once in a chile for years. 9th of July has been commemorated ever since by students and the rest of the public ever since.

Join the protests outside Iranian Embassy today - (th of July- 5:30 pm

STOP PRESS TV -George Galloway

PRESS TV, founded and funded by the Iranian regime, has never had it so good. While the Iranian independent and pro-reformist have been shut down, and many journalists and bloggers have been arrested, the Iranian regime has even sent foreign journalists back home. Furthurmore the Internet services in Iran have been slowed down while SMS facilities, as people's means of communications, have been interrupted. Thanks to Nokia-Siemens technology the Iranian regime have the baility to eavsedrop people's conversations while they have interrupted. Thus no one, westeners and Iranians alike, are able to witness the crimes happening in Iran. PRESS TV have been acting as the mouthpiece of the criminals who have remained in power by engineering a coup, for which to happen, they have arrested, beaten, tortured and killed many. Neck Ferrari a PRESS TV presenter has recently quit his job over "bias" in PRESS TV reporting and in "protest after regime crishung dissent" after Iranian elections. In addition to Nick Ferrari, Press TV has employed: Cherie Blair's sister Lauren Booth, The MPs Derek Conway and George Galloway, and the journalists Andrew Gilligan and Yvonne Ridley.

OFCOM, esteblished as a body corporate by the Office of Communications Act 2002, is responsible to regulate UK communications industries, with responsibilities accross Television, Radio telecommunications and wireless communications services. Ofcom is already investigating a complaint that PRESS TV has breached its duty to be "accurate" and "impartial".

According to Potkin Azarmehr an activist, and a popular blogger, the coup govornment has not yet had to pay a price abroad, for the the crimes that they have committed invluding, killing, wounding and arresting protesters in Iran.

SWIPP urges its members and non-member supporters to ACT upon this call. We need to make complaints to OFCOM regarding bias coverage of PRESS TV regarding Iranian post elestion events. Please follow the link below and take a minute or two to make a complaint. Remember people are being beaten on the street and this is the very least we can do.

Additionally you can make complains to Stop The War Coalition for cooperating with Regime apologists such as George Galloway. You could ask very simple questions such as :

1- Why is George Galloway cooperating with Press TV, a bias media, founded by iranian govornment, who has been ignoring the crimes taken place in Iran and has been spreading nonesense about the nature of the protests.

2- Why Mr Galloway, being so obsessed with Israeili crimes and Palestinian victims, has turned a blind eye on atrocities taking place in Iran?

3- Why Mr Galloway, being so obsessed with the victims of war in Iraq and afghanistan, has chosen to completely ignore the Iranian protesters on the street who have been killed, arrested, wounded for expressing their view about the rigged elections through marching peacefully on the streets of Iranian towns and cities?

4- Why Mr Galloway, being so concerned about institutional crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan, has kept silent about the mass arrest of journalists and politicak activists in Iran?

6- Why Mr Galloway, being a shameful apologist for Ahmadinejad's govornment has failed to recognize the crimes of the coup govornment?

How can he place Ahmadinejad's govornement in the category of anti-imperialist and defenders of the working class govornments? Has he forgotten the main backers of Ahmadinejad (Sepah) have gained key financial resources through the privatisation scheme in Iran? Has he failed to see that Sepah-e-pasdaran in Iran owns an unknown number of corporations, mines, factories, and has heavyinvestments in oil, gas and arms industries?

On Wednesday 24th July, days after the people of Iran took to the streets for the crime committed by the government; SWIPP UK engaged Piccadilly Circus the busiest square of London to let a large group of people amplify their voice; putting aside political beliefs in order to unite the cheerless but fuming call to stop the barbaric killing of protesters in Iran.

London was happy to see a large group of Iranians joining us from Bristol, just so they could also unite their heated voice and welcome the citizens of London to share the grieve of the latest victims and also sharing the distress about the political captives.
SWIIP UK is looking forward to continue the serious of events in order to raise awareness and highlight the lack of human rights in Iran.



Just after the electionresults were revealed and the violence began, Iranians living in and around Bristol decided to gather for a series of peaceful demonstrations outside Bristol City Council in order to show their support and solidarity with Iranians in their struggle for democracy and justice. We have had three gatherings since Thursday June 18th, one of which was organised to honour the memory of Neda and all those who perished in pursuit of freedom.
The media has been very interested in covering these events especially BBC RADIO BRISTOL, Evening Post and ITV NEWS.
