Saman Naseem is scheduled to be executed in Iran in less than 48 hours, on Feb 19. He was sentenced to death for an offense he was accused of committing when he was 17. He is an ethnic Kurd and has been subjected to severe torture to make him confess. In fact, he has been subjected to brutal torture in just the last few days in an effort to force him to confess on Iranian TV. Iran is one of the tiny handful of countries in the world that continue to execute juvenile offenders.
Please take this easy action immediately and please urge all your contacts to do so.
We have less than two days to save the life of this young man. Your help is urgently needed. Thank you.

On 15 February, Saman Naseem, a young Iranian man set to be executed on Thursday, was once again brutally beaten up by men believed to be intelligence officials in a bid to make him “confess” again in front of a camera, which he refused to do, Amnesty International said.

RIP Mike Nichols. One of my most cherished experiences was being directed by him early in my career in a deleted scene in Charlie Wilson's War. An actor's director to the core, he was kind, collaborative, nurturing and taught me the value of documentary-watching in preparation for a role. He made an indelible impression on me, one that has shaped me into the actor I am today. Thank you, Mr. Nichols. You will be dearly missed. My deepest condolences to his family and friends.
