"I stand in solidarity with the courageous Iranian democracy, social justice and human rights activists: the defiant women, the jailed trade unionists, the beaten and murdered students, the victimised lesbians and gays, the persecuted Baha'is and Sunni Muslims, and Iran's oppressed ethnic minorities, such as the Arabs, Kurds, Baluchs and Azeris. Their struggle is our struggle, because human rights are universal."
