The International Emergency Campaign received this message, and photos from the Burn the Cage / Free the Birds movement in Europe:
On Monday, November 8, in the German city of Dusseldorf, "Burn the Cage / Free the Birds" joined with environmental activists, human rights activists and others to shine a light on Iran's treatment of political prisoners, and to demand that they ALL be released immediately.
Despite the evening darkness, the bright posters in German and Farsi, and the spirited protest drew passers-by. Many joined the crowd holding posters. A number of people stepped to the open microphone, adding their voices to the Campaign's protest of the arrest, imprisonment, torture and execution of political, ideological and civil activists by the Islamic Republic of Iran, and to call for the prisoners to be released.
