On this day in 2010,rallies were held in Paris,FR. New York City, Ottawa and other major cities throughout the world-to demand the release of Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani
She is an Iranian woman who is facing execution for adultery. Stoning women to death is barbaric and a horror and to think there are courts of law who think this is a form of justice is madness. Ashtiani's nephew is now being held in prison for demanding freedom for his aunt. And even IF Ashtiani had an affair, it is not a reason for death for man or woman.
