WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT TO SAVE AN ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITE IN IRAN!
We are gathering signatures to save the precious Archaeological sites of Pasargad in Iran ( Persia ) which has been declared as a world heritage site by UNESCO. The area been flooded by the Islamic Republic. They are doing the same as what the Taliban did with the centuries old Buddha statues in Bamyan, Afghanistan. This petition is to stop the Islamic Republic from flooding the area. It will go to the Islamic Republic government, the United Nations Organisations, as well as UNESCO and all the other relevant and important people to put pressure on the leader of the Islamic Republic to put a stop to all these. We, ask you as inhabitants of our earth that one of the greatest parts of the historical heritage of the human race is on the verge of permanent extinction within a period of time. The Islamic Republic of Iran hasfinalizea stages of a earth dam construction and has flooded it in the south of Iran that will ultimately drown the archaeological sites of Pasargad and Persepolis, the ancient capital of the Archimedean Empire a rich and complex site that, since its inception, has been considered by all writers of antiquity as one of the wonders of the ancient world and, thus, a part of the cultural heritage of the human race. Comparing to the destruction of two Buddha statues in Afghanistan by the Talibans, this new threat and its consequent loss is beyond any imaginable destruction that has been inflicted on the history of the world. Although these glorious remainders of the Iranian history are a part of this nations historical identity, their loss is not by any means confined to them. That is to say, it is not only the Iranian nation that would be deprived of the most important part of its cultural identity; it is the world history that is in danger. Considering only one fact could convey a powerful message to all of us. Amongst the sites that are threatened to be wiped from the face of the earth lies the tomb of Cyrus the Great, the Archimedean king of 2500 years ago who, in his unification of political systems, brought freedom to all those nations that lived under his lead through his Declaration of Human Rights. In fact, he is considered as the first human being in power who has advocated for the right of humans to choose and adhere to their values, cultures, religious creeds and trains of thought. A replica of the cylinder of his declaration is now exhibited in the UN building to symbolize the long efforts of our race to exit from the savagery of the animal kingdom and enter into the man-made civilized world. It is the tomb of this father of human rights that is being totally erased amongst many other historical monuments. We call upon the conscious of all human beings and caution them about this immanent threat that is shadowing over an ancient country, culture and history. We need to see the immediate action of all The World. If the civilized world does not stop such a horrendous action of the forces of destruction now, we will soon lose everything that our civilization has created. This petition will go to the Islamic Republic government, the United Nations Organisations as well as UNESCO and all the other relevant and important people to put pressure on the leader of the Islamic Republic to put a stop to all these.
