Dear Friends,

Tomorrow, Iran could execute Sakineh Ashtiani.

Our global outcry stopped her unjust stoning sentence in July. Now we
have 24 hours to save her life.

Iran’s allies and key UN powers are our best hope — they could
persuade Iran of the serious political cost of this high-profile
killing. Click here to send them an urgent call to action and send
this to everyone — it only takes three minutes and we are her last
chance:

Sakineh’s adultery case is a tragic sham stacked with human rights
violations. First, she was to be stoned to death. But the Iranian
government had to revoke the sentence after her children generated a
tremendous outcry against the farcical trial — she could not speak
the language used in court, and the alleged incidents of adultery took
place after her husband’s death.

Then her lawyer was forced into exile, and the prosecution conjured up
a new trumped-up charge for which she would be executed — the murder
of her husband. Despite this being double jeoprady, as she is already
serving time for alleged complicity in this crime, Sakineh was
tortured and paraded on national television to ‘confess’, and was
found guilty. The regime has now arrested two German journalists, her
lawyer and her son, who has bravely led the international campaign to
save his mother. All remain in prison and Sakineh’s son and lawyer
have been also tortured and have no access to lawyers.

Now Iranian human rights activists state an order has just been issued
from Tehran to implement her killing immediately, she is on the list
and tomorrow is execution day.

Persistent campaigning led Iran to drop Sakineh’s stoning sentence and
captured the attention of leaders in countries with influence on Iran,
like Turkey and Brazil. Now let’s urgently raise our voices to stop
her killing and inhumane treatment and free her, her lawyer, her son
and the jailed German journalists.

A massive public outcry has the moral authority to s top heinous
crimes. Let’s use these 24 hours to send a clear message — the world
is watching and we all stand together today to save Sakineh’s life and
against injustice everywhere.

With hope and determination,

Alice, Stephanie, Pascal, Giulia, Benjamin and the whole of the Avaaz team

Medio en broma, pero en serio. / Miguel Iturria Savón.

El viernes 22 de octubre a las 6:00 p.m., fue inaugurada por el estudio de grabación la Paja Record, situado en el apartamento de Gorki Águila, director de la banda de rock Porno para Ricardo, la exposición colectiva Pusimos el cuadro y qué, que podrá ser apreciada por los interesados hasta fines de noviembre, en Avenida 35, número 4204 esquina a 42, municipio Playa, La Habana.

La Paja Record ocupa dos habitaciones del apartamento de Gorki Águila, quien ha convertido su casa en centro musical y de exposiciones, donde los integrantes de Porno para Ricardo ensayan sus canciones, graban sus propios discos y realizan tertulias sobre arte y literatura, a pesar de las prohibiciones del  gobierno y de la policía política, que los excluye del mercado discográfico, los salones de concierto, la radio y la televisión, todos en manos del Estado cubano.

Medio en broma, pero en serio, con la misma frescura juvenil de las desafiantes y simpáticas canciones interpretadas por Gorki, Ciro Díaz, Ebert Domínguez y Renay Cairus; los cuadros comprenden el cartel, el graffiti, el dibujo, la fotografía, el montaje con textos y creaciones pictóricas de Noel Morera, Arturo Cuenca, Luís Trápaga, Rubén Cruces, Ricardo Orta y otros que cargan la mano en temas sociales y eróticos, entre estos el montaje fotográfico de Ebert Domínguez; “Columna, calumnia”, de Fernando Ruiz, y el dibujo “Mis muñecas” de Claudia Cadelo.

Llaman la atención algunos figurativos y alegorías: “Crisificcion”, de L. Trápaga; “El descorche”, de R. Orta; “Borrachos”, de Heriberto Manero y las entregas de Cuenca, Morera y Claudio Fuentes, reconocidos en la plástica y la fotografía insular.

Aunque la exposición es un divertimento en tono de desafío, lleva el estilo de los chicos de Porno para Ricardo, cuyo poder de convocatoria está avalado por los millares de seguidores que reproducen sus discos: “Rock para las masas cárnicas”, “Soy porno, soy popular”, “A mi no me gusta la política, pero yo le gusto a ella” y “Álbum rojo desteñido”.

Las collages, pinturas, dibujos y fotografías que se exhiben en la casa de Gorki Águila hasta noviembre no tienen propósito comercial ni competitivo; reflejan la interacción de intelectuales que buscan espacios de libertad al margen de la censura y de las normas institucionales.

Quienes deseen información sobre la Paja Record y sus opciones discográficas y culturales, deben contactar con Gorki en la dirección citada, o acceder a los blogs de Ciro Díaz y Claudia Cadelo en la Plataforma Voces Cubanas.
