The moon cries over Isfahan.

The moon cries over Isfahan.
The Iranian city of Isfahan has seen a terrible trend in the past few months: a string of eight acid attacks against women, which in some cases have disfigured or blinded the victims.

Thousands of protesters marched in both Isfahan and Tehran, Iran's capital city, to demand justice for the victims and punishment for their suspected attackers.

The attacks coincided with the passage of a new law, "designed to protect those who correct people acting in an un-Islamic way." Its critics fear it would legitimize the behavior of vigilantes who roam city streets "correcting " people, usually women, who they believe are behaving or dressed immodestly. (The law has been incredibly controversial; even President Hassan Rouhani doesn't support it.)
At least two thousand people protesting the attacks and the new law massed in front of the local judiciary office in Isfahan, while several dozen marched in front of the parliament building in Tehran.

Alice, Karin Garcia, E. Adam Galehr, виктор кабалдин and 170 other people have particularly liked this photo

Deine Worte beschreiben etwas Unfassbares.
Das schöne Bild zeigt, wie schön das Leben sein könnte, wenn die Menschen sich egal welche Hautfarbe sie haben, welcher Religion sie angehören, sich gegenseitig respektieren und friedlich miteinander leben würden. Es ist furchtbar und grausam, was im Augenblick in der Welt geschieht.

religion will always be a source for violence, suspression, unjustice. only naturalism and humansim can lead to a peaceful, fair coexistence of human beings. unfortunately there is no such progress in our 'civilized' world, sadly.

This is as beautiful as the attacks were ugly.

But.... the power of the masses IS turning things around. "One voice in the darkness' is actually a 1000 voices.. and then a 1000 more.

It takes an unseemly amount of time... but idiocy in the end collapses on itself.

The "One thousand voices in the darkness " give idiocy a huge push into oblivion

An exquisite image. No wonder the moon cries. Religion itself is not the problem. We, humanity are. So many of us are powerless and some try to feel powerful by controlling the behaviour of others through violence and fear if need be. These acts are chilling. So full of hatred.

Foto sublime. Temo che scoppi presto un conflitto contro l'Iran che potrebbe degenerare in modo imprevedibile. Come sempre la popolazione innocente paghera queste "conquiste mediorientali" elaborate dall'occidente.
