Save an American Pastor from Iranian Abuse and Imprisonment

Save an American Pastor from Iranian Abuse and ImprisonmentHere we go again. Silence is the enemy of freedom. American Pastor Saeed’s sham trial in Iran began yesterday. Iran claims that his conversion to Christianity and work in house churches politically undermines the Islamic Republic. His Iranian attorney, who had less than 24 hours to prepare, strongly argued that Pastor Saeed’s faith did not threaten Iran’s national security.

This was Pastor Saeed’s only day to present a defence, and his father was the only family member allowed at trial. The trial against him may continue, and a sentence, which could be long-term imprisonment or even death, is expected next week.

The U.S. State Department’s response has been abysmal; it has failed to demand this American citizen’s release. There is still time to speak out and call for international pressure on Iran. We must not be silent.

Sign the petition for Pastor Saeed’s freedom now.
