Protests against events with Alireza Sheikh Attar

For October 15, 2011 the Foundation Schloss Neuhardenberg announced a talk between the Iranian ambassador and the German TV philosopher Rüdiger Safranski about the Persian poet Hafiz. After protests from STOP THE BOMB, the Foundation canceled the event. But that is not the end of the story, because Mostafa Dolatyar, deputy foreign minister a.i. of the Islamic Republic is still on the Advisory Committee of the Foundation Schloss Neuhardenberg, together with Matthias Platzeck (SPD), minister president of the Land Brandenburg, Heinrich Haasis, president of the German Savings Banks Association (deutscher Sparkassen- und Giroverband), and Bernd Neumann, German federal commissioner for culture and media. This is an ongoing scandal, and STOP THE BOMB demands the immediate removal of the Iranian regime member from the board. Please find our press release with all information here: Matthias Platzeck, Rüdiger Safranski and the Iranian Regime (October 11, 2011).
