Iranian People Tired of Hospitals Closing
April 3, 2015 – Lost somewhat in the shuffle of the Iranian nuclear deal negotiations, is the role social media and grassroots pressure by normal Iranians that some feel forced Iranian leaders to work with the International community and accept a deal where nuclear weapons are not produced by the Iranian government, and the crippling sanctions can be lifted. Many people are now reporting that Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, the Internet and more played a huge role in galvanizing the pressure.
JTMP has been using social media for social change not only here in the US, but we have been working with peaceful Iranians who had to flee their country due to prosecution and now live in the US and Canada. Our Freedom in Iran Mobile Billboard was shared on social media all the way back to Iran, as well as just recently we celebrated Chaharshanbe Suri with local Persians in the DC area and pictures and video of people jumping over a “fire” were shared on social media all around the world and hopefully back to freedom wanting Iranian citizens back in Iran living under their oppressive government. JTMP congratulates the Iranian and Persian people, and we hope for peace between our nations will blossom. We also hope this will give a huge shot in the arm to the democratic movement in Iran, and the Iranian people can finally have a government that serves them better and they can prosper in peace.
