UPDATE 21 September 2010: No further action required – both Mina and my Facebook accounts have been reinstated. Thanks for all your help on this!
As you know since yesterday Mina Ahadi and my Facebook accounts have been disabled. I have written to Facebook asking them to reinstate our accounts but have yet to receive a response. Anne Marie Waters, of One Law for All, is currently writing a letter to the heads of Facebook on this. We can only see this as an attack on the campaign to save Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani and call on Facebook to immediately reinstate our accounts as we need them in order to highlight this important campaign and the many others we work on.
Activist Abbas Goya has asked people to write protest emails to Facebook about this.
Here is his email to them, which also gives you email addresses that you can use to file your complaint:
To: email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com
Cc: Mina Ahadi; Maryam Namazie
Subject: Strongest Objection: FB appears fallen into Islamic Republic Terror attempt
To Whom It May Concern
This is to notify Facebook about my strongest objection for disabling two Iranian renown Human Rights activists accounts almost simultaneously.
I personally believe that Islamic Republic agents have something to do with it and Facebook appears to have fallen into their trap.
Please reinstate their accounts IMMEDIATELY.
BTW, I know that many others have been emailing Facebook as well. Thank you for that. Please keep pressuring Facebook until they reinstate us.
Will keep you posted on what happens.
