What you can do in Delara’s name…

May 6th 2009: Protest Iran’s Illegal Execution of Delara Darabi

Many Stop Child Executions supporters have been asking what they can do to honour Delara’s  passing and send a message to the Iranian officials to voice their outrage.
Stop Child Executon’s liaison to Amnesty International representative Aubrey Harris had a great idea…


Find an image of a WHITE rose by using Google’s Image searching and email it to your Iranian embassy and/or the officials in Iran along with a short message about how you feel of the injustice in Delara’s execution.

2.     Make your own CARD OF CONDOLENCE to mail to the Iranian Embassy & authorities. You can use the image of the white rose that Delara drew in her own painting which has been posted on the DP blog at http://www.amnesty.ca/blog_post2.php?id=833 

Copy and paste the image onto a word processing document rotated upside-down and aligned to the top-left corner of the page.  On the bottom-right corner of the page, type in your message (or wait to write it by hand). This should fold into quarters with your image on the front of the card and your message inside.

3.   LEAVE WHITE ROSES AT THE ENTRANCE OF YOUR  LOCAL IRANIAN EMBASSY or consulate on Wednesday 6th of May. This action is being taken around the world.

Here are available contacts for Iran in the action (please keep in mind that a two-month stay of execution had been issued by the Head of the Judiciary only two weeks before Delara’s sudden and secretive execution):
