To the head of United Nations, Mr. Kofi Anon,
We, the following signatories, the youth and people of Iran, both inside and outside the country, wish to bring to your attention the following considerations.
With noted attention to:
1. The upcoming Presidential Election of the Islamic Republic of Iran by no standards holds any merit, or integrity and is not worthy of the title of an "Election".
2. The Government of the Islamic Republic of Iran has placed strict filters for candidacy in this election. This government has recognized and accepted only the most abhorred candidates. However, the candidacy of all parties and individuals who do not have a most discriminating and guarded devotion to the Islamic Republic itself is not authorized or accepted under any circumstances.
3. People of Iran are vastly frustrated with both the regime and its "Elections" for its use of horrific attempts of threats. Threats are given in all forms. Ultimatums range from with-holding salaries and sources of income to revoking rights to enter universities for not voting. These are just two examples of the many tactics used by this government to terrorize and threaten the nation into submission and showing up at the voting booths.
THE ELECTION OF A NEW PRESIDENT IN THE ISLAMIC REPUBLIC OF IRAN ON JUNE 17, 2005 HOLDS NO LEGITIMACY. THIS REGIME AND ITS ELECTION DOES NOT HOLD ANY CREDITABILITY.
If you have any respect for freedom, we ask you to support us in our struggle against the entirety of this regime of Islam and its "Elections." We are ready to prove with evidence the illegitimacy, irrelevance and ludicrousness of this charade that has been endowed the title of an "Election". We wish to meet with you to present our case. We have millions and millions of Iranians as our witnesses and ask you to not turn a blind eye to this barefaced and manifest utter act of disrespect to humanity in Iran and the world. We ask you to not even accord the title of an "Election" to this shameless act of lies and threats.

I know it's old news, but I'd never seen this before.
But isn't he just the cutest thing? :) His coat just screams metro-sexual. ;)
