'Persecution' Video for Bahai Human Rights Day

A few months ago I shared a song called ‘Persecution’ about the 7 Baha’i leaders imprisoned in Iran. Today was scheduled to be the day of their so-called trial, although recent information indicates that the date has been delayed once again.  In honor of their steadfastness under such difficult circumstances, I wanted to share a video that a friend made for my song ‘Persecution’. Please share the video with your friends and ask them to share it with others.
Please feel free to download the song Persecution. Please click here.

Many thanks to Penny for creating the video and my gratitude to Jarome for producing the song.

    Dear Elika,
    What a wonderful coincidence…I got your notice tonight of this moving video to accompany your powerful song & I am downloading it from Youtube after a 2 hour teleconference with the friends one of which is in Iran, as we work on developing a Masters of Public health program to improve the status of all Iranians through the Baha’i Institute of Higher Education. What a way to spend “Baha’i Rights Day”. The sacrifices of these beautiful souls are inspiring action around the world!!
    Love–ray

    Elika Mahony,
    You did a wonderful job! it genuinly touched my heart and I hope it may reach as many people as posible and that through the beautiful song and the heartbreaking scenes of the video they find inspiration to learn more about the Baha’i Faith and realize how unjust the persecution has been.
