Human Rights Concert in Defense of BIHE Faculty and Students

Human Rights Concert in Defense of Education Under Fire in Iran campaign


Education is under fire in Iran. When the Islamic Republic Regime of Iran banned the Baha’i students from attending university 30 years ago, the Baha’i community fought back by creating the on line university called the Baha’i Institute of Higher Education (BIHE). Humanitarians in Iran and around the world jumped in and offered the instruction and resources for these students whose government had deprived them of their basic human rights to education. The faculty and administrators of BIHE has been continuously harassed, threatened and recently their offices and homes raided, computers and belongings confiscated,all imprisoned, their children left without loving parents to embrace them and educate them.
We need your support and all people who are free, to fight back and to speak up for their rights using the civilized channels of  awareness and protest until everyone of them is free to learn and teach.
Please join us in our humble effort to speak up for their human rights in Iran.
