This week, two important dates are coming up. The first one is the International Day against Stoning on Sunday 11 July. The other is the anniversary of the student uprising in Iran in 1999 this Friday 9 July (18 Tir).

Sakine Mohammadi Ashtiani has been in prisone since 2005 and was convicted in 2006 for adultery and received 99 lashes. However she has subsequently been sentenced to death by stoning for adultery. For more information on her case go here
