These players, who can’t hide their identity, are placing themselves at potential grave risk. How courageous, how inspiring.

Open Letter to the World – English Version

Iranian Artists in Exile: An Open Letter to the World. The video above is passed along by reader Lili. It is powerful, but perhaps not as much as the note she wrote accompanying it:

The is important because it is a very eloquent communication indicating how many members of the worldwide Iranian diaspora community feel and it is important to share this message with the world whose attention is currently fixated on the Iranian plight.

I am an Iranian by birth whose family fled Iran 30 years ago as a result of the 1979 revolution and have not set foot back in Iran due to the political situation which makes it impossible to do so for me and my family. Now, as an adult, I am witnessing these events which are awakening within me feelings that I didn’t know I had or didn’t know the extent to which they were present and I feel compelled to speak up for all of my fellow Iranians, as well as for all members of the human family who are being oppressed throughout the world, to make
sure that their struggle is not in vain.
