Many organizations and groups have created petitions demanding international sporting bodies, such as to International Olympic Committee and other international sports bodies such as United World Wrestling association to suspend Iran’s membership and to ban the Islamic Republic of Iran from taking part in any future tournaments.

We invite everyone to sign the petition below.

Suspend Islamic Republic from All International Sports

To the International Olympic Committee,

Asian Olympic Council, and International sports federations,

In the past year, two devastating tragedies plagued Iranian sports:  the first was the heart-wrenching death of Sahar Khodayari, a young woman, who set herself on fire after being sentenced to prison for trying to enter a soccer stadium. As you may know, women in Iran are barred from entering stadiums.
