Action to defend Mehdi Kazemi March 22nd

On Saturday March 22nd at 2pm Middle East Workers' Solidarity will be staging a protest opposite Downing Street in defence of Mehdi Kazemi, a gay Iranian asylum seeker who the British government plans to send back to Iran on the grounds that if gay Iranians are "discreet about their sexuality", they will not get in trouble.

In fact, Mehdi Kazemi's boyfriend in Iran has already been executed for being gay, and the regime knows about Mehdi Kazemi and will likely kill him if he returns. We are demonstrating to demand that he should not be sent to his death in Iran, and that he should be allowed to stay in Britain if he so chooses.

Saturday March 22nd, 2pm, Downing Street. Nearest tube Westminster/Charing Cross

I see the delightful George Galloway was on TV this morning claiming that Mehdi's boyfriend was hung for a "string of sex attacks against young men".

Sick Galloway is of course on the take from Iran.
He's being paid by Press TV the Iranian funded TV station.

To slander Mehdis dead boyfriend as being killed for "sex crimes against young men" is sick.
