Urgent Help Needed By Iranian Students' Movement

SMCCDI (Urgent Action Call)
April 18, 2005

Dear Iranian Compatriots, Dear World's Freedom Lovers,

We need desperately your valuable help in order to continue
to exist and respond to our duties and moral obligations.


In the last twenty-six years, whether in Iran or abroad,
all of our lives have been affected negatively by the
Islamic regime and its desire to destroy Iran and Iranians
alike. We have witnessed the inhumane ideas of this regime,
and we cease to be horrified at the lengths this barbaric
theocracy has reached in its ability to terrorize Iranians
as well as the international community. Most of us Iranians
have dealt with the reality that the international
community did nothing to stop the holocaust of our people
and our country at the hands of this tyrannical regime. We
know the freedom of Iran and the end of the regime of
terrorists in our country lies in our own hands.

In a surprising twist of fate, for the first time in
twenty-six years, the President of the United States
directly spoke to Iranians during his State of the Union
Address in February of 2005. For the first time, the leader
of the most powerful country in the world has proclaimed
support for Iranians committed to returning freedom and
democracy to Iran by ending the Islamic terrorist regime.
If pro-democracy endeavors are not supported during this
short window of opportunity, Iranians may never see freedom
in Iran again.

With this in mind, the Islamic regime has actively been
working in Iran and abroad to make sure freedom fighters do
not have the chance to use this window of opportunity.
After President Bush's proclamation of support for Iranian
freedom fighters, the Islamic regime has embarked on a
campaign to separate any unified forces of opposition who
seek freedom and democracy for Iran.


One such group, "Student Movement Coordination Committee
for Democracy in Iran" (SMCCDI), has always been on the
forefront of the opposition movement against the regime of
terror. This opposition group has been a key figure in
aiding the freedom fighters in Iran with the aim of
establishing a secular political structure elected by the
majority of Iranians and returning human rights to Iran.
By way of its web site, SMCCDI has been a major source of
political inspiration for many young Iranians striving for
modernism and democracy.

Our analysis or public statements called for some of the
successful demonstrations, protest actions or boycotts of
Islamic regime's events or sham elections which took place
in Iran and abroad, such as, in US, France, UK and Italy.
Hundreds of hours of satellite TV and radio programs based
on SMCCDI's materials or interviews amde with its members
have been one main source of enlightenment and action for
millions of young Iranians striving for freedom and
modernism.

From the defense of students and the support of Iranian
women, voicing up the legitimate aspirations of teachers
and workers to the very clear promotion of secularity,
SMCCDI has always been at the forefront!

Many of you do remember how we promoted this today
undeniable principles of "Secularity" and "Real Democracy"
at times that most were promoting sham "reforms from within
the frame of theocracy" or the masquerade named "Islamic
Democracy"!

Our group has also been an integral part of bringing
important and timely reports from inside Iran and has been
sited by reputable news sources such as The Washington
Times, The Los Angeles Times, The World Tribune, The New
York Sun, The Wall Street Journal, The National Review, The
Salon, The Insight Magazine, The Pittsburgh Post Gazette,
The Front Page Magazine and CNN in the US; The National
Post and The Ottawa Citizen in Canada; Le Figaro and Le
Parisian in France; Corrier Della Sera, Il Foglio, Il
Reformista and Opinione in Italy; Prima in Russia; The
Financial Times and The Herald in UK; Berliner Zeitung and
Jungle World in Germany; The Japan Today in Japan to
name a few.

SMCCDI also stood firmly against those Islamic
republic apologists and lobbyists who intended to
legitimize the Islamic republic by promoting ties between
the US and Mullahcracy. Nor their threats or nor a long and
legal procedure were not able to make us bent in front of
political Machiavellism and those building money or fame on
the blood of our countrymen and freedom fighters!

Those of you familiar with our work can back our claim!


Sadly, due to dwindling funds, SMCCDI's web site,
( http://www.daneshjoo.org also known as
http://www.iranstudents.org ), as well as its aid to
members and freedom fighters in Iran, has been diminished.
Presently, the web site has had to be brought down, as of
Friday April 15th, and the survival of this group depends
on your responsible donations.

The SMCCDI website gets 45,000 to 65,000 visits each day
with picks of 183,000 hits on key dates such as July 9th
(anniversary of Students' Uprising of 1999).
SMCCDI also sends its Reports, Statements and Urgent Calls
to Action via its well developed mailing lists
(peyk@daneshjoo.org or list@daneshjoo.org) with
several thousands of subscribers.

If SMCCDI does not have the financial support it
desperately needs, it will be the end of one of the most
powerful sources of opposition and information against the
Islamic terrorist regime. During this crucial time when the
window of opportunity has been opened by International
parameters, and with the world watching, Iran's future
depends on the work of such powerful opposition groups.

Now is the time for action!


Your financial support of any amount is desperately needed
for the continuance of SMCCDI's fight for freedom and
democracy. SMCCDI is a force used greatly by our beloved
students in Iran who have devoted their lives and put their
livelihoods at risk in order to end terror and dictatorship
in Iran.

countrymen and countrywomen to voice up!

Feel free to post anything you like there. As you all know, I am very liberal. I think we need a place where we can all just say whateva.

Lovely places like here and activistchat are too polished, and must not be abused. So I have made this one, and if you feel inhibited in any way don't.

But remember I will answer you there. So come around everyone, and post a bit of news. Please spread the word.
