Fraud elections and demand for new elections in Iran

It seems obvious that the last Iranian election seems to be a big fraud. Evidence for this are that the results of the elections, and therefore the winner was certain and known before the end of the voting time. Also, some of the election urns are said to have been full before the end of the voting time. And in several cases, voters were not allowed to give their vote.

The protests of all the people in Tehran and other places inside Iran become wider. From the beginning, the Iranian government answered with hard and violent. Many people are being imprisoned. Several people were injured and some are known to be dead. But the European government, as nearly all other foreign governments do not intervene. They announce to watch and criticise the conflict. But no action follows.

The United Nations does not help either. On their internet homepage they praise themselves to stand for peace, fairness, and democracy. But there is no performance in that direction for the people in Iran, for people, whose country is even a member of the United Nations. On the UN-Homepage it says:

“The work of the United Nations reaches every corner of the globe. Although best known for peacekeeping, peace building, conflict prevention and humanitarian assistance, there are many other ways the United Nations … affect our lives and make the world a better place. The Organization works on a broad range of fundamental issues, from sustainable development, … disarmament and non-proliferation, to promoting democracy, human rights, governance, economic and social development … and more, in order to achieve its goals and coordinate efforts for a safer world for this and future generations.”

Butt these are only words. You cannot talk of fairness and good governance in a country where human rights are being beaten down and democracy becomes a foreign word.

It does not even seem be of interest of the general secretary of the United Nations Ban Ki Moon. He does not seem to stand behind the people of Iran. There is no mentioning about the happenings over the last couple of days in Iran on his homepage (see http://www.un.org/sg/).

What can be done?

No government on this earth should accept the last elections in Iran. Instead, new and fair elections should be demanded, and must be supervised and controlled by the United Nations. Ban Ki Moon, the general secretary of the United Nations should travel to Iran immediately to act on that.

Please send this mail to your foreign ministry, your head of government, and/or to the United Nations. Please ask them to not accept the last elections in Iran and instead to demand new and fair elections, which will be supervised and controlled by the United Nations.
Please send this email also to your friends and colleagues and ask them for help, too.

Thank you.
For all Iranians.
