This week reminds me of three events in the history of our country:
Contribution of thousands of Iranians from Iran and around the world to Simay-e-Azadi (Iran National Television)
Twenty-first fundraising telethon of Simay-e-Azadi, Iran National Television, turned to a manifestation of national will and solidarity in support of the Iranian Resistance, disgust toward the religious fascism ruling Iran in its totality and the demand for changing this regime and the establishment of freedom and democracy.
Iranians from inside Iran have taken big risks by participating In the Simaye Azadi (Iranntv) telethon including the risk of imprisonment or even execution, and despite the intolerable economic situation, they have been non-stop calling the TV and have been announcing their contributions to the pledge drive. They are from different strata and age groups. This moving video clip demonstrates a small number of these calls to the telethon that started on Jan 13.
