On 12th of June 2009 people of Iran voted for change but their votes were stolen and the loser Ahmadi Nejad claimed victory.

People challenged the authorities and asked for openness and transparency, the authorities ignored people and labeled them as "dust & dirt”.

People poured to streets and protested, the government banned protests and mobilized forces and pain cloths mercenaries to insult them Instead of defending people’s rights, some hand selected deputies, sit obediently in the parliament, Majles, to serve their own private interests Ministry of Interior affairs does not allow legal and peaceful demonstrations, but send riot police with tear gas, water bombs and guns to attach them.

A number of universities and dormitories have been viciously invaded by security forces and their plain clothes collaborators.

Mrs. Shirin Ebadi, the only Iranian Noble peace Laurite, has condemned the brutality of Iranian authorities, and now the Judiciary system has summoned her and is going to prosecute her.

To: The Honourable Kevin Rudd MP, Prime Minister of Australia

Subject: Protest by Australian delegation against Human Rights Violations in Iran at the UN General Annual Assembly, September 2009

We, pro-democracy Australians, who are deeply concerned about human rights violations in Iran, respectfully request that the Australian delegation to the United Nations General Assembly in New York refuses to acknowledge Mr Mahmood Ahmadinejad as Iran’s legitimate President.

We ask that the Australian delegation refuse to listen to his address to the General Assembly and walk out in protest against the widespread human and civil rights abuses perpetrated by Ahmadinejad’s regime (well documented by international non-government human rights organisations). These abuses are contrary to claims that Iran is a democracy, and its obligations under The Universal Declaration of Human Rights and The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.

While Mr Ahmadinejad’s shameful denial of the Holocaust has resulted in past walk-outs by world leaders, we ask that the September UN meeting walk-out be specifically in protest of the regime’s brutal crackdown on peaceful political opposition inside Iran. This suppression has included the torture and killing of minors held in arbitrary detention.

Ahmadinejad’s regime must recognise that the rest of the world strongly disapproves of its behaviour towards its own people and that the world will continue to monitor and protest until all human rights abuses cease.

We ask the Australian government to clearly and diplomatically state its opposition to Ahmadinejad’s treatment of the Iranian people, including the action to walk out in protest upon the commencement of Mr Ahmadinejad’s address to the September UN General Assembly.

Respectfully yours

Australian Supporters of Democracy in Iran
