THE URBAN I-TIE

Just an Italian girl with a lot to say and share!

Another teen being sentenced to death for maybe being gay.

Just as a follow-up on my “For Neda” post, the movement that is taking place in Iran also represents stories and injustices such as this one.  Ebrahim Hamidi, an 18 year old Iranian man, was given the death sentence (hanging) because of the potential that he may be gay.  Yes, this isn’t the first time nor will it be the last that such tragic and inhumane acts occur not just in Iran, but in other countries.  Read the story and see why those of us outside of Iran are disturbed and disgusted with their means of “justice” and “law”.  For those that think that the Western world is against Iran because of its nuclear threats (yes, that’s scary) but what the US, Canada, Europe, UK and the rest of the big players should be stressing real concern on are the ridiculous numbers of violations on human rights and freedoms and the crimes against humanity, in my opinion at least.  Nuke talk can take place after.  In my world, that’s what I would like to see happen.
