March 17,2010The PresidentThe White HouseWashington, D.C. 20500Dear Mr.President:We are encouraged by your powerful statement during your first State
of
the Union Address: "AsIran's leaders continue to ignore their obligations, there should be no doubt: they, too, will face growingconsequences." However,while economic sanctions and international isolation are necessary,we believe the greatest threat to the Iranian regime will come from the liberation
of
its own people. We askyou to support those fighting for freedom and democracy in Iran.The United States must stand by the countless Iranians who have stood defiantly against theregime. We must call for the release
of
all political detainees and prisoners,and demand the cessation
of
torture,rape and other human rights violations. As the leader
of
the free world, the United States has amoral obligation to support the courageous men and women in Iran who are demanding freedom anddemocracy at risk
of
arrest, imprisonment, and execution. Iran's dissidents will not stop fighting.Weshould not stop fighting for them.In addition, those demanding freedom have relied heavily on the internet to inform the Iranianpeople, organize protests, and update others worldwide about the regime's violence against its ownpeople. We shouldassist Iranian dissidents by helping them to circumvent state censorship throughaccess to relevant internet technologies, while ensuring that access to such technologies cannot beexploited by the regime in any way.Finally, we implore you to investigate reported mismanagement and bias at Voice
of
America'sPersian News Network (VOA-PNN). The apparent lack
of
oversight regardingthe management,staffing, mission, and content ofVOA-PNN broadcasting -an American-taxpayer-funded programironicallymay have harmed theplight
of
those seekinghuman rights, instead
of
helpingit.The United States,through principled rhetorical and material support,can help the Iranian people to achieve self-determination, human rights, democracy,and fi·eedom.We appreciate your consideration ofour request.Sincerely,
PRINTEDON RECYCLED PAPER
