A Perspective on Human Right Violation: Action in Defense of the Baha’is in Iran

Chilliwack BC - May 14th and May 22nd mark the anniversaries of the arrests in 2008 of leaders of Iran’s Baha’i community, and the coordinated raids on 39 homes throughout Iran, along with the arrests in that country of a number of Baha’i educators delivering university level education.

To defend the persecuted and keep this injustice alive in the public consciousness, Baha’i communities across Canada are holding public events.  In Chilliwack, the Baha’i community has invited Dr. Roshan Danesh to present A Perspective on Human Rights Violation: Action in Defense of the Baha’is of Iran at 7:30 p.m. Thursday May 24, 2012 at the Coast Hotel in Chilliwack.

Dr. Danesh has considerable legal experience working with aboriginal governments and has been active in inter-ethnic and inter-religious dialogue and peace building at many levels.  He completed his doctoral studies at Harvard in 2003 and teaches law and conflict resolution in Canada and internationally.  In his presentation, Dr. Danesh will look at current struggles for human rights in the Islamic Republic of Iran, with a case study of the denial of basic rights to Iran's largest religious minority, the Baha’i community.
