But amidst all this pomp and ceremony for Wall Street protesters by the Islamic Republic, they have been ignoring another development in the Wall Street movement. The Wall Street protesters not only have not shown any sympathy for the Islamic Republic, they have actually been holding posters of Iranian prisoners of conscience. Campaign 99, are a group of Iranian activists who are raising awareness among protestors at Occupy Wall Street Movement on the situation of political prisoners and the
on-going repression of dissidents in Iran.
“The idea is simple ...” says Campaign99. “We have decided to talk with 99 people engaged in
Occupy Wall Street Movement around the world. We will listen to each person's narrative of why
s/he has joined the Occupy Wall Street Movement. Then we will narrate the life story of an Iranian
prisoner of conscience for that person. After this mutual exchange of stories, we will ask the person
to send a message to and make a poster for that Iranian prisoner. While s/he is holding the poster,
we take a picture. This is for global solidarity.”
Below are some pictures of the Wall Street "uprising" Press TV will rather not show, but why is the Western Press not showing them either?
