During the interview Nazanin Afshin-Jam told Spiegel that many European countries have close trade connections to Iran and are therefore cautious about pointing out the bad Human Rights situation in the country. She added that this kind of appeasement was just as wrong as the politics of George W. Bush.
Nazanin in another part of the interviews said that www.stopchildexecutions.com was created to present the situation of the children in Iran who are presently facing executions.”We want to pressure the Iranian government to put an end to this” she added. This campaign is the further development of a campaign that helped rescue the life of an Iranian girl which proved we can make a difference, if we get together.
Nazanin Afshin-Jam and SCE campaign wish to thank the Germans for the overwhelming numbers of signatures at the Stop Child Executions Campaign petition and their emails offering to help the Stop Child Executions Campaign.
