Dear President Obama, Why Sanction the Iranian People?
by the Canadian Iranian Coalition for Peace

Dear President Obama,

Applauding your humane reaction to the recent school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, we wonder if you would also shed a tear for the plight of the Iranian people caught between the devil and the deep blue sea, as a result of the sanctions imposed on them by the international community.

Heart-wrenching reports of ordinary Iranians dying due to a widespread shortage of pharmaceutical drugs call for immediate cessation of hostilities toward the Iranian people.  Eyewitness reports of the black market for the drugs and the tearful eyes of families of cancer patients scrambling desperately in this market should concern you as much as the Newtown incident did.  Although the former happened beyond your control, the pain and suffering of Iran's cancer patients are a direct consequence of your government's policies.  Whereas there is barely any evidence suggesting sanctions achieve their political goals, they are causing death and devastation to the Iranian cancer patients. . . .


For more information about the Canadian Iranian Coalition for Peace, visit <cicfp.blogspot.ca>.  The text above is a partial transcript of the coalition's video letter (in English with Persian subtitles) to Obama.
