همه حقوق بشر برای همه ایران

Südwind Written Statement:

Iran is one of the oldest members of International Labour Organisation (ILO), which implies non-discrimination between men and women in employment in the labour market. This report highlights the case of women specialist care doctors, who are treated differently than their male counterparts in employment due to the Ministry of Health and Medical Education regulations. It also refers to gender quota on the initial phase of employment in the government agencies and the problems that ensues for women.

AMNESY INTERNATIONAL: The action at the Iran UN Mission in NY (Third Avenue between 40th and 41st) to deliver the petitions and letters calling for Omid Kokabee’s release will be on October 28–probably about 10:30 AM. I will keep you posted on plans but I hope you can join us there! I think we have good momentum going now, with the publicity around the 28 (actually now it’s 29) Nobel Physics Laureates letters to Iran’s Supreme Leader calling for his release, and the Maz Jobrani video in which he calls for his release. We also received good news that Iran’s Supreme Court has voided the original ten-year sentence and is reconsidering it. So now is definitely time for the final push to get us across the finish line! Dr. Ahmed Shaheed, the Special Rapporteur for the Situation of Human Rights in Iran is planning on delivering his official report to the UN later on that day. Iran’s Universal Periodic Review at the UN Human Rights Council commences a few days later in Geneva. So the time is right. Hope to see you there!

Desert people – Living of the Turkmensahara – Part 19

Chapak or Fish

Chapak or Fish

Desert People – Life in Turkmen sahara, Iran
Chafak: The palm-size fish is called “chafak” or “chapak” and they’re caught in the Caspian Sea, too. The price is rather high, which is approximately half of white fish.
I was feeding my cats saying, “Just one!” until I found out almost half of the amount was gone. And it was after when I heard about the price.
Since the fish was small, I used scissors to cut open it from the belly. It was much easier to take away the externals that way than using a knife. I also found caviar in some of the fish but this time I decided to give them to my cats after boiling. For us, I fried them and cooked gatykliash.
Khalil likes dry, crispy deep-fried food. ….

Gun Az – By Umud Duzgun:

History made by South Azeris in an international club match between Tractor of Tabriz and Aljazeera of Dubai.  A political chant gained voice and momentum.

 On February 26, an Asian Champions League match took place between the soccer teams of Tractor (Tabriz) and Aljazeera (Dubai). ” Yashasin Azerbaycan! ” or Long Live Azerbaijan! was the cry from the impressive crowed of 85000 FC Tractor faithful. Persian minority regime of Iran, which occupies South Azerbaijan since 1946 prohibits Azeri soccer fans from carrying any cultural and political symbols and banners. Despite all these prohibitions, the Azeri fans managed to sneak in a huge 50 feet long banner writing in English for the first time “South Azerbaijan is not Iran “resembling the Catalan slogan “Catalonia is not Spain.”  It caught the eyes of millions of viewers around the nation and beyond.

Therefore, the acute than a right angle, a corner of one corner of the dining kitchen is becoming wider angle than a right angle corner. I checked and well well, the walls of the house had been on the wall of the site as it is very much. And say what it means, because the house is situated on the boundary of the site, of which the outer wall is a wall for the Neighbors. Would not it strange?
If you look at the tube, such as gas and water would come out from the wall and did the work how, (so on the grounds of Neighbors), rather than the side wall, they are out in the portion corresponding to the ceiling of the ground floor of which all . Future when the room was on the ground floor, water pipes and gas pipes wonder if running the ceiling. I have to cover it, what do you think additional work? Read more…
