Saturday 28 June 2008


Change for Equality: Change for Equality, the official site of the One Million Signatures Campaign was blocked once again on June 20, 2008. This is the eleventh time that the site has been blocked by authorities since the inception of the Campaign on August 2006. On June 23, four other sites related to the Campaign have also been blocked, including sites operating from the city of Amol, Karaj, Zabol, and Hamedan.

The new address of the site Change for Equality is:
www.change4equality.info

Earlier the site of PhotoChange, the site dedicated to posting pictures about the Campaign, was also blocked. Since then, a new domain has been established for this site, which can now be accessed at:

Approximately one month prior to the blocking of Change for Equality, 12 websites related to the Campaign and or addressing women’s issues were also blocked. Some of these sites operate from other countries, but most are based in various cities in Iran. The 12 Campaign related which were blocked in this mass action, included the sites of the Campaign in Shiraz, Isfahan, Rasht, Azarbaijan, Mashad, Araq, Zahedan, Kurdistan, Cyprus, California, Men for Equality (the site of the Men’s committee of the Campaign) and the site of Change for Equality (blocked for the tenth time). Other women’s sites were also blocked in this mass action. These included: Women’s Organization of Iran (Kanoone Zanane Irani), the Feminist School, Women’s field and the Women’s Solidarity Network. All these sites have since established new domains and are now accessible by users in Iran.
