Sen. Youcef Resolution Vote Next Week

By Matthew Clark1339614744000

The U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations has scheduled to take up the resolution supporting Christian Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani next week.

The committee is scheduled to consider the resolution, a companion to the resolution that unanimously passed the House earlier this year, next Tuesday, June 19, 2012. It is the next step toward bringing S. Res. 385 before the full Senate.

The resolution, “Condemning the Government of Iran for its continued persecution, imprisonment, and sentencing of Youcef Nadarkhani on the charge of apostasy,” could not come at a more important time with Pastor Youcef’s attorney continuing to face imprisonment himself.

The Senate resolution supporting Pastor Youcef is a critical symbol of continued international pressure calling for his immediate release. You can learn more about the resolution here.

Another symbol of international support is the continued growth of the ACLJ’s Tweet for Youcef campaign. It is now reaching more than 2.3 million Twitter accounts daily in 234 countries and territories around the world.

As we are quickly approaching the 1,000th day of Pastor Youcef’s illegal imprisonment on July 8th, please continue to Tweet for Youcef, and urge your Senators to support the Youcef resolution.
